I am working on a G5 with Final Cut Pro 5.0.4. My client has shot on his Sony V1 (PAL) in HDV. I have tried connecting via firewire through the USB port and through the firewire port on the Mac.
I always get confused with the different settings, so maybe I have these wrong, but hope you can help me.
Can I capture HDV to my FCP version? If I have to down convert what do the settings need to be on the camera and on the mac?
I can't find the bookmark now, but someone had advised that on the camera to make sure the A/V was set to DV. Or something like that - thing is this option is not on the V1 I have with me from the client.
My firewire cables are relatively new. It could be the ports on the camera, but that seems like the easy way out.
