Capturing issues on Dv deck in Fcp7
on Apr 8, 2010 at 5:33:24 am

HI There

I am unable to capture using a Dv deck on Fcp 7.
When you open the capture window below the controlls the words "Not threaded" are there.

It was working fine last week. I'm capturing straight to the hard drive.
Everthing is set as it should.
Dv footage in pal.

Thanks,
Duane

Go over the DV deck's settings with a fine-toothed comb, for starters. There could be a switch or setting mistakenly changed.

Here's another really basic thing that solves quite a few problems: when was the last time you just shut down your FCP machine and kept it off for a while?

Hi Dave

I shut down the entire machine and restarted it. Now there is no communication.
I've tried two other machines one of which had been off for a couple of hours. Same story.

Thanks for the advice.
I'll keep trying and post the results.

Try loading the easy setup, for DV and change the necessary settings from there.

Trying to log/capture DV footage into FCP 7. FCP sees my VTR deck JVC BR-HD50, timecode works, remote settings work, but preview screen shows color bars and "PREVIEW DISABLED".

Called Apple support and went through every DV setting and even tried to capture from my camera into FCP. ApS says FCP 7 doesn't know what to do with the DV footage. FCP 6.5 will play/log DV footage fine. But not FCP 7. Any suggestions??? Normally shoot HDV, but we're pulling some footage from old mini-DV tapes for project.

Do you happen to still have the deck set up for HDV? Check the menus on the deck.
