New Camera Won't Log & Capture Footage
on Feb 12, 2010 at 3:45:15 am

I just purchased a Sony HVR HD 1000U. I have some footage a friend gave me that he wants edited. The camera shows it perfectly on the screen. When I try to Log & Capture the footage it won't work. When I use the control in the viewer to play and rewind the footage (still in Log & Capture mode) the camera stops, plays, and rewinds. Yet, I see no video. The timecode on the viewer (in FCP) even matches the timecode on the camera. Yet, no video.

Hi Cory, it's been a while since you posted your question, but you didn't seem to get any answers. I bought a sony HD cam myself, and after much trial we discovered that instead of capturing, I need to Log and Transfer. This is because my camera is digital and doesn't use tape.

Hope you've already found a solution, but if not hope i've helped.

Pays to read the manual. The camera only exports 1080i or SD footage. The footage I had wasn't from my camera and I think wasn't in 1080i. But, all the footage that I shot with the camera I have been able to Log and Capture. But, I haven't been able to record straight to FCP.
