FCP Audio Capture w/ XL1s

When taping with the XL1s I use audio channels 1 & 2 for the lav mic and 3 & 4 for the boom.

When capturing via Firewire in Premiere, you can choose to capture audio from tracks 1/2, 3/4 or all 4 channels. Is this possible in FCP 5.1?

Yes it is, but you'll have to create your own capture preset from the Generic Capture Template. In the audio section of the template, you get to choose 1/2 or 3/4 or Mix all 4. Just don't forget to change your audio to 32K.

Take note of the Quicktime audio settings.

Capture preset editor will not change video or Audio settings in HDV

Hello from Norway
Problems again
I copied your attachment showing the capture preset window, but when in HDV the Quicktime video settings has NO CHOICE and Quick time Audio settings has NONE and BUILT IN AUDIO, so as it is now I can not choose 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 audio channels to import ? any ideas ? as I said I am using FCP 5.1.1
Could you please if you can find the time give me all the Audio/video settings I need to edit my 4 channel audio from my canon XL H1 PAL in HDV

I'm not certain HDV supports the 4-channel 32K format built into the DV spec, but someone correct me.

I found Greg's screen shot useful except for the video settings, which should be DV-NTSC should they not? Is this a Photo-JPEG capture setting?
