capture HDV as H.264

IM using fcp 6 on a Mac book pro Iíve been asked to capture 2 HDV tapes as H.264. Do I do this in the capture settings of fcp or do I have to use compressor to convert to it?.
If itís possible to capture it as H.264 I would like to do that. Iím not editing the footage or doing any thing else with it so Id like to be able to do it with out using compressor

Thanks for any help

Unless you have a device that specializes in direct to h.264 capture (they are out there), your best bet is conversion through Compressor.

My question would be why would you want to?

I'd capture normally, edit, export to H.264.

You then have the original higher version if you need to revisit that for some other use.
