Final Cut 7 Batch Capture WARNING ERROR: See Post

What is causing this error and how do I solve it:

WARNING: You are about to capture Drop Frame media from a device currently detecting or configured for Non-Drop Frame media. If you proceed, you may experience changes in logged in and out points, problems relinking media, or removal of master clip relationships.

Thanks in advance for your reply,

Sebastian

The capture error message you are experiencing is due to FCP seeing whatever type of timecode your deck is generating. If you put one of your logged tapes in the deck and roll a few seconds before you select batch capture you should not get this error message.

Hello Ken,

I am capturing from a Canon GL2, I am unclear as to what you mean when you say:

roll a few seconds before you select batch capture?


Do you mean I need to add handles to my clips?

Regards,

Sebastian

No handles. When your GL2 does not have a tape rolling inside it, the GL2 is probably communicating to FCP non-drop frame time code. Your tapes were probably shot in drop frame. If you roll one of your tapes in your GL2 before selecting batch capture, the GL2 will send the logged tape's time code (DF or NDF) to FCP.

Try these steps:
1. Close your log and capture window.
2. Put one of your logged tapes in your GL2.
3. Open log and capture.
4. Control click on "Reel" in the log and capture window to bring up the contextual menu and select the logged reel that is inside your GL2.
5. Press the play button in the log and capture window to roll the tape in your GL2. Your GL2 is now communicating the correct type of time code to FCP.
6. Go to your bin with your logged clips and select all of your offline clips.
7. Control click on the selected clips and select "Batch Capture" from the contextual menu.

If you logged your tapes correctly you should not see the error message now.

Exactly how many seconds do you need to roll before batch capturing in FCP7? Every single time I try to batch capture a tape, it will not recognize the time code on the first and last clips, even though I leave a good margin of footage on either side. I'm currently trying to get it to start at 8 seconds into the tape, and that is not enough apparently. Can anyone tell me exactly how many seconds the program requires? Thanks, Kate
