i recently transfered some DV footage into FCP from my camera.
i watched the transfer take place and there were no glitches or
errors on the video.
after the transfer took place, i attempted to play video back in my
timeline but noticed that the footage would have a skip/glitch every
3 seconds or so. this happened with every tape i tried to transfer.
i went back and viewed the original tapes through the camera and all
of the original footage plays back perfectly.
my thoughts are that its something in the preferences but i cant
figure out what.
Would be agood idea to check your quicktimes outside of FCP, then if all is OK , check your timeline settings in FCP and see they match those of your footage. Further, check your footage resides on drives separate from where your project is being saved.
