Is it Possible using a Panasonic HVX 200 (P2) to Record/Transfer Only the Audio Channels to Final Cut Pro?

Hi Folks,
I want to do voice-over work with my Panasonic HVX 200 camera on P2 cards (at 1 GB/minute record time) and input it in FCP. Is there any way I can record only the audio channels to cut down on the large data size of the files since I am not using the video part?
How can I accomplish this? I have terabyte after terabyte of storage files, so the more space saving the better.
Thanks for the help.
Dan

Hi,

Sorry, this is not really possible. You can cap the camera but it will record video regardless.
Best,

Jan

Yeah that's not really an ideal setup for voice overs, I'd suggest this

along with your favorite mic.

There is a way to do this, though as has been posted already it's not an ideal way.
Hook your 200 up to the MAC via firewire, set the the Audio/Video capture settings to the codec you are recording at in camera, then in FCP's log and capture window click on "Clip Settings" and de-select "Video" leaving only the audio box ticked. Now set your device control to "Non controlled device" and use "capture now" to record audio through the 200 direct to your MAC's media drives. You will generate audio only files and save space. Remember when you finish to re-select the video box in clip settings.
I'm not sure about this part though, you may be able to record to DV Tape as a back up at the same, bypassing your P2 cards if you are concerned about space on drives.
