David, as I understand it the .mt2 file is mpeg compressed, when transcoded using MPEG Streamclip and selecting the native setting that does not require any scaling 1440x1080 square pixels and the outputting to AIC or Prores is a faster workflow for me in the long run.

I said back to HDV in the first post because it still looks cleaner than the FCP HDV capture. This is still the case with FCP6.

When the file is brought back into FCP for editing it goes back to the stretched horizontal pixel aspect. If you output from MPEG Streamclip as 1920 x1080 you would be scaling up the image.

Kevin, I use this method because it yields better results (for me anyway). You could always try the Fire-store.

Apple DVHSCap:

When I watched the footage after capturing it in Apple DVHSCap it seemed to have dropped the image stabilization and the windscreen...can that be possible?

Does this acutally work better than what's in FC St2?
