Hi Dave,

I occasionally use a tool from Apple's developer site, in the FireWireSDK kit called DVHSCap. It captures the HDV stream to a .ts file straight from the camera -- works for tapes and live recordings. The only time it's really useful to me is for a >1hr shoot that I don't want to change tapes for, but it'll probably work perfectly for what you need. It doesn't transcode anything -- just takes the raw data, so it's about the same data length as your tape.

Here's the link:

I haven't figured out how to repackage the HDV stream into something directly usable in Final Cut, so for now I use MPEG Streamclip to convert it to AIC for editing. Anyone have ideas on a better workflow? At any rate, I think you can use DVHSCap to dub the HDV .ts file back out to tape, so you could do that and recapture in Final Cut if you have need for that.

Good luck!
