Log and Capture Problems
on Feb 15, 2010 at 9:59:17 pm


I am trying to log and capture footage and I keep getting the following message:

1. WARNING: You are about to cature Non-Drop Frame Media from a device currently detecting or configured for 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.

Can you tell what the problem could be?

It's possible your Device Control Preset is set to something like HDV Firewire Basic when it should be HDV Firewire Basic NDF (Non-Drop Frame). If you search the Cow for drop frame you'll find an explanation of what it is and the difference from non-drop frame. Wikipedia would also be a good place to look.

Put the tape in your deck/camera and roll a few seconds of the tape. Now try batch capture and that warning message should have gone away.
