V1U footage info (aperture, framerate, etc.)

I shot on a V1U and wanted to see if there's a way to read a clip's camera settings (aperture, framerate, etc.) when in FCP. Is this possible? If not in FCP do I need another program to read this info?

I was wondering about that too.

But it all depends if the info. is inside the .m2t.

But, you use FCP, it captures and transcodes to ProRes, right?
Maybe your chances of still having this info. are not that great.

You can read it in the camera. While in the playback (VCR) mode, enter the menu. Go to the "Display Set" menu page. Go to the "Data Code" line. Under "Data Code" you have a choice of "Off", "Date" and "Camera Data". Select "Camera Data" and you will have all of your shooting info.

Thanks Greg. When capture in FCP using the HDV 60i codec, this camera info isn't transferred then?

depends on what FCP you use, of course...

Sony HVR-V1 HDV Tape-Based Camcorder Support

Final Cut Pro 6.0.2 is compatible with the Sony HVR-V1 HDV camcorder, which is capable of recording 1080p24, 1080p25, and 1080p30 footage. You can capture natively or capture to either the Apple Intermediate Codec or the Apple ProRes 422 codec. You can also output back to the Sony HVR-V1 camcorder using the Print to Video command.

To natively capture 1080p25 or 1080p30 footage, you should use the HDV 1080i50 and HDV 1080i60 Easy Setups, respectively. Your footage will retain its progressive scanning even though it will be stored in an interlaced format. You can capture 1080p24 footage using the 1080i60 Easy Setup, but your captured footage will retain 3:2 pull-down in this case.

For transcoded capture of 1080p24 footage, 3:2 pull-down is removed during transcoding, resulting in footage stored in the 1080p24 Apple Intermediate Codec format or the 1080p24 Apple ProRes 422 codec format. You can also capture 1080p25 and 1080p30 footage to either format, although Easy Setups are not included for these formats. In these cases, your captured footage is stored in the 1080p25 or 1080p30 Apple Intermediate Codec or Apple ProRes 422 codec format.

Here are the recommended workflows for capturing from and outputting to the Sony HVR-V1 camcorder with Final Cut Pro 6.0.2:

* 24p/60i on tape: Capture to the 24p Apple Intermediate Codec or Apple ProRes 422 codec, then output to the HVR-V1 camcorder in 24p/60i mode.
* 25p/50i on tape: Capture to the 25p Apple Intermediate Codec or Apple ProRes 422 codec, then output to the HVR-V1 camcorder in 25p/50i mode.
* 30p/60i on tape: Capture to the 30p Apple Intermediate Codec or Apple ProRes 422 codec, then output to the HVR-V1 camcorder in 30p/60i mode.

Sony HDV Camcorder Hard Drive Support

The Log and Transfer window in Final Cut Pro 6.0.2 includes support for HDV camcorders with hard drive options.

Important: A separate plug-in from Sony is required to enable these features.

If I used the easy setup for 1080i60, is this info stored in FCP somewhere? How can I view it?

Does this Sony plugin fix the problem with trying to find source timecode in the log and capture window? When I'm in log and capture I try and go to a specific timecode (that exists on the tape), the tape gets near the timecode but then gives me an error.

My HDV 1080p30 capture procedure - any thoughts?

I usually use the HDV 1080p30 easy setup because it sets my sequence preset to use an HDV 1080p30 compressor and sets the field dominance to none. After capture I go through all of my clips and change the field dominance to "none," though their compressor is still set to 1080i60. The sequence is set as mentioned above. The difference in compressors between the clips and the sequence requires a little more rendering, but this sequence setup seems to work a little better with 1080p30 stuff from After Effects. Does anyone see any major error in this logic or setup? I'm curious. Thanks.
