I just had 3 tapes converted from PAL to NTSC at my local video specialist and have hired a M35P VTR to capture the NTSC tapes in FCP (6.0.6)
When I plug the VTR into my Mac via Firewire all the controls work and seem fully operational. However, when I try to capture the tape all I get is an error message on the screen saying "This operation could not be completed as there is no video."
I have checked the composition settings, the VTR settings and the capture settings many times over and I can see no logical reason why this would not work. I have also run tests using PAL tapes and a pal project and it all works fine.
Does anyone have any ideas??? Its getting to a point where I my lose this project so ANY help at all would be greatly appreciated.
VTR Settings - DVCAM, 60i
Capture Settings - DV NTSC 48Khz Anamorphic
Project Settings - DV NTSC 48Khz Anamorphic
