Question about JVC GR-PD1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have footage recorded (unintentionally!) in the camera's Hi-Res mode 25 frames per second (25fps) but the audio - if I understand the issue correctly - is captured at 50fps. When the footage is played back on the camera this is not a problem because the 'magic in the box' syncs sound and vision (again, from my understading of the manual) by playing both at 50fps. However, when I capture the footage to Final Cut Pro (FCP) chaos ensues! The video plays back at twice normal speed and, obviously, video/audio sync is completely scuppered. I can solve the video play-back problem by simply reducing the playback speed 50% (which effectively doubles the length of the video track) and then sync the audio. The problem is that I have, say, 30 seconds of video but only the first 15 seconds of audio! I've tried capturing the footage on a PC using the MPEG capture utility and audio converter and this works fine but leaves me with a ".m2t" file which, after I transfer it to the MAC, is not recognised by FCP. I have also tried converting the .m2t to DV format using DVDROP (dvdrop also knocks it out in NTSC not PAL so it isn't really ideal even if it did work!) the .m2t file that goes in synced comes out unsynced. Frankly, this problem is driving me bonkers and I cannot see another way round it. Is there a solution? Regards Bowjey.

I have a similar problem, i - by mistake - shot some footage in ps 50 mode. Now i can capture it in my mac by playing it analog, and than capture it. This seems to work fine only.... date and time keeps showing in the footage and that's not what i want cause that makes the footage totally useless.
Problem is, i don't have a manual i can't seem to figure out how to 'not display' date and time of the recording. Does anyone have a suggestion or maybe an english pdf manual you can send me? Any help would be higly appreciated. ([email protected])
