Question about Canon XL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I am using Final Cut Pro and importing video to an iMac.
I am using firewire.
After I have hooked everthing up and set my Canon xl2 to VCR mode, I get a signal on my blue LCD screen that flashes "dv in".
My FCP program says "no communication"
Do I have a bad connection? or is there something else that I need to do?
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
That sounds like you need to change the flow of the connection. At the moment the Mac is sending a DV signal to the camera. You want the other way round. Look for something like Refresh firewire Device in the FCP View menu

Does your video can play on your iMac, if so, maybe it is the video format problem, then you can refer to the following guide

XL2s are notorious for issues in interacting with final cut.
Simply put, sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't. But - there's a way around it.
Change the capture settings preset to 'non-controllable device'. Use the shuttle controls on top the handle of the XL2 to play back the footage as you wish. when you want to capture, click 'Capture Now' - It should do the trick.
