Pass through capture with FCE

My church utilizes a G5 running FCE. I would like to hook up a camera an use it as a pass through device and have FCE capture the stream. The problem is that everytime I go to perform the capture it asks for the timecode. I've searched high and low through the program and manuals to find where I can turn off the device control function but I can't find it.

Does someone out there know exactly where I would turn off the device control function for capture? Thank you.

Don't know about FCE, but in FCP you would open the "Log and Capture" window and click on the Capture Settings tab. Pick "non-controllable device" from the Device Control drop-down tab.

As an alternative however, you might take a look at BTV Pro. It's a very cool shareware application that will do what you want an much more: http://www.bensoftware.com/btvpro.html

Thanks for both tips Boyd.

I'll check on the settings adjustment this week. I think that the BTV Pro program is really the best answer. I've been very dissappointed with Apple's capture tools and I like the options that BTV Pro offers. Thanks.
