Question about JVC Everio GZ-HD7 Camcorder

3 Answers

Unable to Hi Folks, I cannot get my footage to appear in Final Cut Express 4. Below i list 4 ways i tried. I hope it all makes sence. the footage is recorded in 1440 CBR and the camera is connected to the pc by firewire. 1) in Final Cut the 'easy setup' is set to HD, HDV-Apple intermediate Codec 1080i50. When I click 'capture' a black dialog box pops up and on the bottom it says 'Cueing tape' and nothing else happens. Final Cut knows the camera is connected because it will let me know once I switch the camera off that it has lost connection. 2) with the 'easy setup' mode set to PAL, DV-PAL i click 'capture' and a capture dialog box opens that has a sort of tv test screen. On the bottom it says  'VTR ok'. Next to that is another capture 'now' button that opens again a black dialog box. On the bottom of that it says 'waiting for timecode, device must be in VTR mode when device control is enabled. Nothing else happens. Final Cut refers to VTR (VCR) saying the camera must be in that mode. I cannot find any reference to VTR or VCR in the JVC manual or on the camera. 3) I can only get the camera to send a signal in the 'playback to pc' mode when connected by USB but Final Cut doenst seem to recognize a USB connection. 4) when I try to open or import a copied video file from the pc directly, Final Cut does not recognize the file format. The file format is .MOD Any ideas ?? Thanks !!

Okay, so if you want to do real-time capture, you need to setup a playlist of clips on the camera. when you go to play the playlist, do NOT press the center button in, push it to the right. Then it will start doing what you want.

HHHhhhmmmm. I'd suggest the DV mode and if you camera has the option to output DV as letter box select this, as it is a faster version to edit with (due to compression of HDV). I don't know the camera but VTR is just the playing mode, so play the file you want while trying to connect. Is the signal coming from tape? If it is catured to the harddrive of the camera you will need to import not capture.
USB does not support video, USB2 maybe.

How to edit MTS files on Mac


Video editing software on Mac like iMovie, Final Cut Express, and Final Cut Pro still have big troubles in recognizing footages shot by AVCHD camcorders. The problem is especially obvious for those people who do not have the latest version of these editors. Because these AVCHD cameras such as Canon HF S11, HF S200, JVC GZ-HD620, Panasonic AG-HMC40, etc. are all recording videos in the format of MTS or M2TS, which have not got native supports from the above mentioned Mac editors to full extent. To make MTS files possible for editing on Mac, here I would recommend you Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, which will convert MTS to MOV and other container formats that are accepted by often used Mac editors-iMovie, Final Cut Express, and Final Cut Pro. The application works well on Mac OS X and handles TS, TP, M2TS, M2T format as well. The following guide tells you how to convert MTS files to a workable format for editing on Mac step by step. If you are frustrated by the similar problem, please read on it to find out the solution.
1. Run Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac and click "Add" button to load MTS files shot by your camcorder to this program.

2. Click on the drop-down menu of "Format" to select a compatible format for your iMovie, Final Cut Express, or Final Cut Pro. I select "MOV-QuickTime (*.mov)" as an example.

3. Click "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters
You are allowed to adjust audio and video parameters like codec name, bit rate, aspect ratio, frame rate, and audio channel in the following window. In principle, the larger input values, the larger file size, but accompanying with the better file quality; the smaller input value, the smaller file size, but accompanying with inferior file quality. That is to say, if you want to do advance settings, you’d better make a balance between the file size and the file quality.

4. Start converting MTS files
Once all the above settings are finished, you can click "Convert" button to start converting MTS/M2TS AVCHD files into iMovie, FCP or FCE&nbsp;supported format. The interface below will show you clearly about conversion&nbsp;progress, time elapse, left time, generated file size, and estimated file size.&nbsp;&nbsp;After conversion is done, you can easily find out the output files for editing via&nbsp;clicking "Open" button.

The end! Hope this helps.

HD footage stutters after captured in Final Cut Express HD 3.5.1


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.

Playing DV footage that was recorded on a different camera


Canon camcorders have a non-standard head position. Borrow a panasonic or samsung camcorder (those two are compatible) and backup your casettes on dvds. If you want them to be on minidv readable on canon camcorder, connect it afterwards and send video to minidv through your camcorder. It will then be alligned the way that suites your gear.

Either that or go to the professional service that does conversion from minidv tapes. That usually costs around 15$ per hour, so if you have 10 or more hours of video, the less expensive way is buying an entry model of panasonic camcorder.

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.
For more information, see HD and Broadcast Formats and the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express User Manual, available under the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express Help menu
