Can anyone help... I'm using FCP and SONY's HDV-M25u HDV deck. The deck is connect via firewire I have a plasma that I want to see my finished project on. I want to play my timeline, pass through the deck via HDMI and see in on the plasma. What are the deck settings/project setting?
Set you Video Playback to "Apple Firewire" (PAL or NTSC as appropriate) and this will send your HDV timeline to your M25 deck as a letterboxed SD DV signal (via a realtime software downconvert courtesy of FCP's RT Extreme playback engine) ... you should be able to watch that on your plasma via the deck, but it'll be pretty crap I'm afraid.
