checking format of clips

Hey guys

How do i check the format of clips that i've already captured?

I'm logging HDV tapes and the compressor is showing 'DV-PAL'... is that right?

Thanks for the help! First try with HDV (yea. laggard!)

Hello Shin...It's super simple, in FCP just double click on the clip and it will load in the viewer. Then go to the menu "EDIT" and choose "Item Properties" and the dialogue box will appear with all of the stats about the selected clip. The info will identify the exact specs for the chosen clip. Cheers! STU

I know alot....but not as much as the other guy.

Or, look at the clips in the FCP browser and scroll over to the far right and look for the column labeled "compressor." That column will always display the codec of every clip.

Got it! Well someone meddled with the iLink converter on the tape deck and I'll be recapturing.

Thanks guys! :)
