It complete depends what you are recording in! PAL or NTSC? and how many frames... FCP is customized to your camera settings, match them up and then capture away!

I capture mine using a PC because then you can play around with both MAC and PC editing platforms as MAC captures are encrypted to only run on MAC.

I can't initialize on FCP


If you are capturing HD, go into the menu > IN/OUT REC > i.LINK CONV and set it to off, and A/V->DV OUT to off. Go into FCP and go to the File Menu and select "easy setup". In the easy setup menu set the "Format" to "HDV" and set "Use" to HDV - 1080i60. Click "Setup". Now go to File > Log and Capture (command-8). You're now set to capture. Just queue your tape and hit "Capture Now" or set in and out points and capture "Clip".

If you want to capture SD footage, then on your Sony unit, go to the menu and set the i.LINK CONV to "on". In the easy setup menu you will want to set "Format" to "NTSC" and "Use" to DV-NTSC".

Final Cut Pro X Review-No Log and Capture or Log and Transfer?


The newly released Final Cut Pro X is now a hot topic, especially among the FCP 7 or 6 users. The UI of FCP X is different from the older versions. The style change is somewhat like how Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 differs from the older versions. In the other words, it is from grey to black. Of course, Adobe Premiere Pro is different form FCP. <br /><br /><b>How would FCP X change the video editing on Mac?</b> <br /><br /><b>- No Log and Capture , Log and Transfer</b>: <br />With FCP 7 or below, the Log and Capture option is to import tape-based videos, while the Log and Transfer option is for file-based camcorder videos. If you have mini-dv like Sony HDR-FX1S, you may need another tool to capture and save videos as a file, and then import to FCPX. <br /><br />For videos from file-based camcorders, the process is like working with iMovie. The Camera Import window should pop up when camera is connected to Mac for you to select clips. Then click Import Selected, or the like button to load videos. Even though FCP X is supposed to import AVCHD files in .mts or .m2ts format, there are still users reporting the problem. If that is the case for you, you may need to transcode AVCHD to QuickTime MOV for FCP. Aunsoft <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Final Mate for Mac</a></b> would help you make the videos compatible to FCP X. <br /><br />If you use Canon XF100 to shoot videos in .mxf format, or other camcorders with MXF files, just try Aunsoft <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/video-converter-mac/">Video Converter for Mac</a></b> to see if it works for your .mxf video footage. <br /> <br /><b>- <a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/news/final_cut_pro_x_review_-_no_log_and_capture_or_log_and_transfer.html">No transcoding to ProRes</a></b>: <br />As it is known that the videos imported via Log and Transfer would be transcoded to Apple ProRes. User should wait for the transcoding before editing. It is said that Final Cut Pro X would grant you access to your material right away, saving a lot of time. <br /><br />Actually, there is also timeline for <b>editing in FCP X</b>. But the layout is different from the previous versions. The audio would be snapped to the video. You may find out more interesting features and get used to it.

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.

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.
