I'm doing some analogue effects that require bouncing HD over to a VHS and back as SD. Some of the effects cause timecode dropouts and when I capture in FCP it omits the dead space of the dropouts throwing my timing off by several frames each time.
I don't need perfect timecode, but I do need the footage to come out roughly the same length as when it went in. I don't mind bumping it over a few frames, but as it is it's way too much work to cut up and realign.
I'm wondering if there's a way to get FCP (or anything for that matter) to freerun record even if it just fills the nothing with black (ideal).
At the moment I'm capturing with canopus ADVC110 analogue digital converter on a mac pro osx10.6.8 FCP7
Any help would be much appreciated, I understand if no one knows though. I know it's a weird request... I didn't have any luck googling the idea. lol.
