I'm trying to help a remote editing client to get his XH-A1S footage from tape with the best possible look. He has both iMovie and FCP (likely 7). He hasn't told me the frame rate he used. He doesn't get FCP very well, but since I'm editing with it, it's better to capture the video with it and save any re-processing I'd need to do if he captured on iMovie. My HDV camera is a Sony, so I know there will be some differences. When I capture, I use:
HDV 1080i 60
Sony HDV Firewire
I know that once I can dial in on an Easy Setup for him, he'll just need to repeat the process for each program. Thanks so much for the help!
