I'm using Canon HDV HV20E camera and I've been trying to capture my footage on FCP 5. I shot using the HDV settings using I.AF.
The problem is that FCP5 does not recognize my camera even when i select the proper capture presets. It reads; "Unable to initialize video deck. you may still log offline clips of click capture now" which of course doesn;t work when i click capture now. Also it says that there is no preview available. I've tried almost everything available in the presents.
Perhaps I've been doing it wrong the whole time, therefore I would ask if anyone knows exactly what presets should I use to log and capture my footage?
Interestingly enough when i use iMovie it seems to be able to capture the footage. However I have a feeling there is loss of quality and I want to edit using FCP5.
