Did you capture as HDV? When you render is it ok? Some times it is best to capture as DV not HDV the quality will be as good (letter boxed) but it means fce is not having to decode the mpg4 compression of HDV in realtime. Can lead to a jolting due to extram RAM usage.

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.

However I need a program to convert the recorded files into something FCE can recognize. I do online tutorials and Distributee to roughly a couple dozen different sites through <b>BlipTV and TubeMogul</b>. So far I've been limited to recording in 720p30 because it's the best format that I can work with through iMovie (I use imovie to import the raw video, export as a quicktime and then import into FCE for final editing then do a final QT conversion to mpeg-4 for upload; and to be honest not real excited on the quality I'm getting as a finished video. So I need a program which can let me <b>Create online tutorials with FCE and convert Panasonic HMC-150 <a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">1080p MTS to high quality FCE suitable format</a></b> for editing. After editing, I need Distributee to different sites through BlipTV and TubeMogul. <br /> <br />After searching a Panasonic HMC-150 AVCHD to FCE converter, I find <b>Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac</b> as the preferred Panasonic HMC-150 to FCE MOV converter on Mac OS X like Leopard and Snow Leopard. It is a great choice to <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/06/convertedit-panasonic-hmc150-videos-to-fce-and-then-distribute-via-bliptv-and-tubemogul/">do online tutorials with FCE and then Distribute via BlipTV or TubeMogul</a></b> with perfect quality. <br /><br />To help those who may face the same problem like me, or want to rewrap <b>AVCHD to AIC .mov on Mac for HD editing in Final Cut Express</b>, I here list a few steps with the fast AIC video conversion. <br /><br />Step1. Capture/Import AVCHD files to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac. <br />Connect Panasonic HMC-150 camcorder to computer via USB cable, and launch Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac from Application folder.

After all done, you can Distributee to roughly a couple dozen different sites through <b>BlipTV and TubeMogul</b>.
