capturing xl h1 footage
on Dec 6, 2007 at 3:22:43 am

i shot some material with the canon xl h1. it was set to hd and shot at 24 fps.

i am running fcp 5.1.4 and am trying to figure out the best capture and sequence settings for the material. would it be best to capture using hdv - 1080p24?

thanks for your help.

Starting from scratch...
Set up FCP using an Easy Setup of "HDV - 1080P24"
Make sure that Device Control is set to "HDV Firewire Basic NDF"
Capture Preset set to "HDV".

Let me know if
a) you have successfully been able to capture your footage.
-or-
b) if you still need assistance in capturing your 24F footage.

Let me know,

hi donald -

i have been able to successfully capture the canon footage at that setting.

the next challenge is matching camera B (panasonic hvx 200) to the canon material. the panasonic was shot in HD at 29.97 fps, while the canon was shot in HD at 24 fps.

would it make sense to import the P2 material from the panasonic and then export it using the HDV - 1080p24 compressor? thanks very much for your help.

Did you shoot 720 or 1080 with the HVX200?
Do you need to stay 23.98 with the edit?

You might want to consider re-capturing the XL H1 footage from the SDI out into a KONA card with SDI in and using DVCPRO HD 1080 60i as the capture codec... Then your XL H1 footage frame rate will match your HVX200 footage frame rate... your edit would be 29.97 at this point... just a thought...
- or you might want to consider upgrading to FCP 6 and using the PRO RES 422 codec as your editing sequence codec. It can handle multiple formats in one timeline.

You certainly have some options...

hi donald -

the panasonic was shot at 1080. we don't need to stay at 23.98 for the edit, but unfortunately, i just finished capturing all of the canon material at 24 fps and so i'd like to try to match the panasonic to that. the issue was that i was having real problems with the fcp timeline - everything needed to match perfectly to be able to work in it and both the frame rates and resolutions were different. so finally i simply decided to use the canon as the baseline and to try to match the panasonic to that.

do you think i'm going to have problems matching the panasonic to the canon settings i've already described? thanks again for all your help.

Hi I came across this thread and am having a problem. I can't get my FCP system to locate my camera. I shot footage in HD 24p on the Canon XL H1 and I have the following settings on my computer using Final Cut Studio 2...

Set up FCP using an Easy Setup of "HDV - 1080P24"
Device Control is set to "HDV Firewire Basic NDF"
Capture Preset set to "HDV".

However my system still isn't getting a signal from my camera. Not sure if the settings on the camera are correct but I followed the manual which said to set [HDV] HD DOWN-CONV setting to OFF

I shot using a canon H1 in 25f HDV setting but can't seem to get my footage off. I am running a firewire from my camera to the computer and I am in VCR setting but can't get the computer to register my camera!

I have set up HDV 1080p25f HDV Firewire basic NDF but it's still not working!
