I just upgraded from FCP 5 to FCP 6 and I have some problems figuring out how to capture Panasonic P2 material. In FCP 5 the P2 capture function was there when I installed the software, but I cannot seem to find it in FCP 6. Do I need to install a P2 capture plug-in?

I have some DVCPRO HD 720p25 footage that I need to capture before Tuesday, and since the earlier versions of FCP doesn't support 720p25, it would be greatly appreciated if someone could give me advice on how to capture P2 in FCP 6.

Thanks. -Henrik Edelbo

There's this Log And Transfer window in FCP6. You don't need any plug-ins. They just changed the name.

Hook up your cam through firewire to your computer. Some people also use the Duel adapter. Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot for the help, it was super easy to capture the footage. However, now I have another problem. All of the footage which has been shot in slow motion works perfectly, but the footage shot at 25fps is out of sync and every 3rd ord 4th frame is double. This ofcourse means that the footage is not smooth looking. I getting a bit desperate here, cause I need my p2 cards for a shoot tomorrow and I am not too keen on erasing the footage since I have the sync and double frame problem.

Some advice on what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.
