I have some digital 8 tapes and a sony dcr-trv720 connected by firewire to a MBP and FCP 7.
The little project I am working on will be edited in prores 422.
I have gone back to the tapes with capture and log and then a second conversion through pavtube to prores 422.
I need to get to prores to unify format for editing with other higher quality footage I have from better cameras.
1.) Is this a two step process a.) capture b.) convert to prores 422?
2.) Is there a way to capture and convert in one step to preserve as much quality as possible?
3.) Why is audio of my new 422 files ok in quicktime but muted in FCP 7?
If I'm not wrong you L&Capture to DV with that camera. No way of capture and convert to Prores at the same time.
You can skip the Prores conversion. DV should work without problem on a Prores sequence.
