Jittery FCP/5DII, put the Zippo down please.

Fist post, lurking and learning forever. Thanks to all.

The real title of this post should be: "dang that FCP/h.264/5DII baloney!".

I'm aware some of this stuff I'm asking about has been talked to death, but I did look hard and am
not finding the specific solution I need.

I thought I knew this stuff, for the most part.
I've certainly done it successfully in the past, however, that was on a tower, FCP 7,
in an XDCAM network TV environment.

Now, using my own laptop and FCP 6.0.6 I am having the very devil of a time,
and FAILING utterly to understand the whys.

With the 5DII shooting 29.97, every transcode tool and flavor except one has failed dramatically to
produce first rate results when using FCP. Even the one that works is not perfect.

I've got a bad case of the jitters.

Some of the transcodes produce files that jitter.
Some produce files that play fine in the FCP Viewer but jitter once they are on the timeline.
Rendering just produces jittery rendered files.

Tried Streamclip after trying Log and Capture, or as I like to call it, shiftapple8.

The best results have been with Prores 422HQ capture through shiftapple8 and XDCAM 1080P 30 VBR.

Even that is unsatisfactory in some CU pans.

The deliverable is for the web, from Brightcove to the world.

So, using small words so I can understand, (pretend you're talking to your cat) could someone be so kind, please, as to provide a 'recipe'?

As in:

Set your FCP project up like this. Capture, project, timeline, all you consider critical.
Why always helps.

Transcode like this. Ditto.

Oh and the drive is a Sonnet F2 twin ESATA to Expresscard34.

May the thoughput be with you.

Typo:

Meant to say Log and TRANSFER, not log and capture.
