Problems importing videos - FCP 5.1

Hey guys,

I am new to the forums and I am hoping that I am posting in the correct area. I own a small Panasonic NV-GS200 and my problem is, it drops frames when trying to import into FCP, this happens when I click on capture now.When I press capture clip it says that "Capture Clip requires In and out points to be set". I am on a new Macbook Pro, although I had the same problem on my iMac.

How I use to get around this would be by capturing the videos in iMovie and dragging and dropping them into my project, it had no problems finding the beginning and end of a clip. Although now I cannot do this because of the new iMovie program being difficult.

Here are some screenshots showing you what is happening.

you need to hit the NOW button to capture clip without setting in and out points.

Sorry, I meant to say when I press Capture Now it drops frames ocasionally and when it doesn't it only uploads one continuous clip rather then serperating them into the individual clip.

I believe people used to have a problem dropping frames due to a glitch with "spotlight". You might want to search spotlight and dropped frames on this forum. Obviously you can't capture with frames dropping, you can check to ignore dropped frames though in: Final cut pro>preferences. But keep trying to fix it first!
