FCP - Capture failure with VHS converted foogate
on Jul 21, 2010 at 10:53:33 pm

I'm a basic FCP user. I am attempting to capture films from the 1930s and 40s. The films were transferred onto VHS before I received them. I transferred them onto mini dv using a JVC HR-DVS3U Video Cassette Recorder. Now I am attempting to capture the mini dv tapes into FCP 6.0.6, but continue to receive this message:

"Capture encountered a problem reading the data on your source tape. This could be due to a problem with the tape. Capture has been aborted..."

I am using the FireWire NTSC device control.

I have attempted the Capture/ Input settings of
DV NTSC 48kHz Advanced Pulldown Removal
and DV NTSC 48kHz Anamorphic (bascially because the others did not work.)

I am using my Panasonic DVX100 as my deck.

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Thank you!

I would hook up a VHS machine to the input of the DVS3U machine and capture as non-controllable device/DV NTSC 48 khz, directly from the VHS, thru the DV machine without recoding it to tape.
I don't have this specific machine, but I have a BR-50, which has a DV setting, and it works on that.
