might need to get a HD capture card not recommeding any kind but one i have heard of is the AJA Kona 2(there are other cheaper ones) but i dont think you really need that. Hopefully someone else can help you with this kinda of thing.

More Details Please

David, do you see your footage playing back in the log and capture window at all, or is it just black when you capture?

David,
My guess is that you are having a QT 7 and/or Tiger problem. Check out this thread on the Apple FCP discussion: http://discussions.info.apple.com/we...Hb.1@.68b24d63.

If you are running FCP 5 on 10.3.9 then all you need to do is use the QuickTime 6.5.2 reinstaller and it should fix the problem (hopefully you don't need Apple's H.264 codec for the moment). I did this today on an old G4, and it fixed the same problem you are describing. If you're on Tiger then check that thread and get back to being productive. Good luck.

Edit: Incidentally, you do not need a Kona 2 or any other capture card for native HDV. It uses that tricky interframe compresssion so you don't have to deal with high data rates unless you want to.

I am doing 10.3.9 and I do have quicktime pro 7, the capture window is black I see no footage at all. The thing is it worked well with the new sony hd camcorder so why not for jvc?

I was just reading about this on Apple's FCP support forum. Evidently FCP 5 does not support JVC's short GOP HDV format. The suggestion was to use Lumiere HD as a work-around.

So if this is correct, FCP 5 is not compatible with the new JVC camera without a third party add-on. Can anyone else confirm this?

From my experience with the HD101 FCP5 will only see 720p HDV footage recorded at 30p. It does not see 25p, nor probably 24p (etc) as it currently stands. From what I have heard there are new updates in the works to solve this problem, but no indication as to when they will be released. Educated guess suggests at least another week or two.
