Hi everyone,
I have old beta SP tapes I would like for capture from Betacam SP unconverted to HD Apple ProRes. How do I undertake this workflow?

Got a deck and a capture card? You'll need both, or you'll need someone else to do it. The capture will be in SD, and it will be up to you to do the upscaling.

Best capture card for this is the AJA Kona 3G. I do this all the time with beta SP and digibeta, for docs now shot in HD.

Will FCP 7 work Shane?

Sure... as long as you have a capture card installed. FCP7 all by itself can't do it.

Well, yes. The Kona 3G was designed for use with FCP 7. I did this all the time with FCP 6 and 7.
