Hi.

I have FC studio 2, So I expected that I could choose 720P 50 HDV for my JVC 201E
But no, there isn't.
What is the best way to get this in FCPro?

thanks in advance.

regards, Johan

We know that there will be a 720P60/50 update from Apple for FCP6 at some time, but no one knows exactly when.

JVC and Apple did demonstrate the 'preview version' of FCP6 at NAB07 doing 720P60 HDV native ingest and playback. I played with it for a few minutes, but neglected to check for 720P50 support.

In the meantime you can use try the Apple Intermediate Codec digitizer built into FCP. I'm not sure if it works the same way in FCP6, but in FCP5 you could simply choose "HDV-Apple Intermediate Codec" from the capture presets. This works with 720P60, but I do not know if it does with 720P50. The trade-off is that you are going to lose TC and any batch capture ability.

The other option is to use DVHSCap or HDVxDV to capture m2t of 720P50 from tape, and then use MPEG StreamClip v1.8 to convert it to quicktime using AIC, ProRes422, HDV, etc.

Hi Tim.

Ok, that's clear, I'll try it and wait for an update of FCP.
For now i thank you.

Regards, Johan
