Once and For All: Print HDV to Video with FSC2
I've searched the forum and I have seen disuccsions on this topic but I admit that this HDV stuff has my head going looping so here is my simple question:

Does anybody know (for sure, like they have done it) if I can print HDV to tape from FCP 6. I have a Sony HDV deck. No, I am not properly set up to monitor HDV yet; I do not have the Kona or other capture card.

All I need to do is export a HDV timeline to tape via a FW4 hook up.

Would FW8 make a difference? I have that option as well.

Thanks in advance; I just need to get to the bottom of this

Strange question buddy. Or course you can export an HDV sequence back to an HDV recorder. What use would an edit system be, if you couldn't do that?

Assuming you have set it all up correctly.
Are you having problems doing it?

Have you ever put normal DV SD back to tape? If so that's a start. Let us know where you are up to.

OK, so I guess I was being led astray by some funky advice. I mean, it made no sense to me but it came from a (usually) reliable source

Finally just set up the puter and deck and tried a test export .. no probs. Again, maybe that seemed obvious but I'm being pulled kicking and screaming into this who HD/V scenerio and just haven't had time to try things out

All good

Breathe in. Breathe out.

I think where Victor might have got confused is that you can't live monitor HDV out over firewire like you can DV.

I understood the whole monitoring part, it was just some (usually stainless steel reliable) bone head who stated that, due the long GOP structures, Macs could not print HDV to tape. Yeh, it sounded hinky to me to (why I did the quick test) but I was also still shell shocked from another instance where a recent purchase had not gone the way I had hoped

Thank all, we have it all sorted now. Caveat emptor rules apply
