Capture skips first clip in Bin??
on Jan 15, 2012 at 6:45:14 pm

I am having an ongoing problem capturing HDV from tape, occurring both in FCP 6 and FCP 7.

After logging a bin of clips and trying to capture, the tape rewinds to the second clip in the bin, captures it first then captures the rest of the bin in sequence until the end of the tape,..then the tape rewinds a second time to the beginning of the tape to capture the first clip in the bin last???

So the whole tape reminds twice in one capture unnecessarily. This occurs in 25% of capture attempts and occurs even with plenty of pre-roll on the first clip. It occurs with just bin highlighted or all clips in bin highlighted.

Any help is much appreciated.

Odd indeed. Capture the first clip by itself?

The timecode isn't higher on that first clip? If so this would be normal behavior.

indeed, capturing first clip by itself is my work-around, but then when setting up the capture for the remainder of the tape, it sometimes does the same thing again, skipping clip #2 and starting with clip #3, only to rewind again at end to capture clip #2.

In this particular case my in-out points are:
clip #1 00:00:21:00 - 00:01:10:00
clip# 2 00:01:29:00 - 00:03:16:00
clip #4 00:03:42:00 - 00:05:04:00

There is no setting to change... might try trashing prefs?

Or capture the first clip, then batch it again with the others... when it rewinds, stop the capture.

I've always found that capturing the entire HDV tape is the only way to fly seamlessly. Capturing individually logged clips is subject to the whims of the HDV gods, and invariably save no time whatsoever.

My students worked a lot in HDV pre AVCHD.... I've never worked much with it otherwise, but tapeless cameras sure make all of this easier.

I worked with HDV a fair amount and grew to dislike it the more I did. Its color space is very limited, with very limited latitude, and it does not hold up particularly well when encoding for DVD or web delivery unless it's perfectly exposed in-camera. It was never really designed for professional use, but as we all know, the lines between pro, prosumer, and consumer have been blurred beyond definition.
