Controling Sony M35U
on Aug 17, 2009 at 7:40:38 pm

I would like to capture HDV footage into Final Cut using the SDI output on Sony's HVR-M35U. I have an AJA card and breakout box, but because the Sony deck has no RS 422 control, I have to set my device settings in FCP to non controllable device. Although this allows me to get the SDI signal, I cannot get the tape's TC. Does anyone know a way around this or am I better off just using the HVR 1500A?

Judy- First close out of FCP. In the deck menu turn the iLink downconvert to ON. Keep your SDI connection. Launch FCP. Set your SDI settings in Audio/Video settings. Now open Log and Capture. Set to firewire device control from the machine control tab inside 'Log & Capture.' It's a workaround that works for us.

HTH,
Jerry

We use Jerry's method on both of our M15U HDV vtrs, works just fine.

Dear Jerry, Thank you so much for the elegant "trick" -- you already saved us $250 and we're truly grateful. I hope we can return the favor one day! All the best, Judy(& Brian)
