Well, with P2 you do not need a capture card to import the footage. It is tapeless and comes in right off the card, or better to offload the card to a drive first (back it up) and THEN import. But if you shoot DVCPRO HD, then you import as DVCPRO HD. You cannot import as ProRes...and there really is no need. DVCPRO HD is good.

Here is a basic workflow for P2: P2 Workflow with FCP 6

Now...for outputting to Digibeta, any capture card will do. AJA, Decklink, Matrox. All downconvert well to Digibeta.

I beg to differ... The Matrox Axio downconvert is horrible. AJA is great, can't speak to Decklink.

I'm talking MXO2 here...since the question was centered around Final Cut Pro.

Gotcha. That's interesting how the less expensive Matrox product will downconvert nicely but the much more expensive one won't.

Hi, I had experienced when print DVCAM material to the Betacam SP/ DigiBeta, the color was half dropped than the original. I'd try Compressor to convert to Uncompressed 8 or 10 bit but the result was still the same, so I print it to the DVCAM VTR first then recaptured it with uncompressed 8 or 10 bit, then printed it to the Digibeta or Beta SP, I got the normal color result. Is this will happen also if we print from DVCPRO HD to BetaSP or DigiBeta?

Hi Ungku if you're in Indonesia drop me your email & contact number so we can chat by phone or else :)..

I have never seen that myself. And I don't get that when I output DVCPRO HD to Digibeta.

What capture card do you have? Oh, but you said it did this via Compressor too...

I just tried printed it from XDCAM EX to Beta SP... same result.. the color looks "thin", I used DeckLink and Matrox MXO2. Again I do my old way, print it to DVCAM, recaptured with Uncompressed then print it to Beta SP, and I got normal color result.
Maybe it's because DVCAM/ XDCAM EX is a digital format and it's only 3-4 MB/sec and Beta SP is analog 20MB/sec.
And maybe DVCPRO HD has bigger date rate, so got no problem. IMHO
