This is the second project in which I am digitizing Cannon 24F footage via the Sony HVR-M35U deck (HDV 108i 24P)> I am using FCP 6.0.6
The deck is reading the tape but while the footage is being captured in FCP, it is glitchy and freezes every few seconds. The footage is also being broken up into sequential clips while capturing even if there is not a time code break. There is usually a 10 second loss of footage with each break.
I captured about 60 tapes for the previous project and had no difficulties.
My FCP Device Control Preset is HDV FireWire Basic NDF with a frame rate of 23.98.
Is this a connection issue? Internal damage with the deck?
