i'm planing to buy JVC's new ProHD camera GYHM700 wich records in full HD 1080 25p in mov format.
I did the test shoot with the demo camera from the company. when I copied the footage. the quality is excellent and when i imported it to fcp i accepted my timeline setting to change to match clip settings. all worked well. but when i sent the timeline to color the clips came blank with cross marks. what should be the reason.
i've FCS-2, FCP 6.03, and color 1.0.1.
do i need any other codecs? or need to download some fcp updates? or should I upgrade my FCS2 to FCS3
in this jvc 700 camera it records in .mov, and they claim that its fcp competible mov files that true but i also thought the same the way you thought. may be the file is mov but the encoder they is mpeg4.
so if i upgrade to color 1.5 do you have any idea if it will work or not.
