Can I print my original HD footage to DV tape

I have never used the print to tape function. I shoot mixed formats...HDV and HD with 2 different cams.

I always keep a "MASTER" tape of the HDV footage.

Although I have a master backup of the HD file-I am wondering if I can PRINT TO TAPE the original HD footage so I have a master copy on tape as well. Of course I want to do this without any quality loss.

Thanks...

Certainly. Just hook up your camera and go to Tools - Print to HDV tape.

Showing my ignorance here, Edward, which one of our colleague's cameras could be used for this?

Grazie

hi grazie, fancy meeting you here.....

afaik all sony tape based hdv / dv cameras can - that is, in australia. i read ages ago that some record function was disabled in the eu to avoid tax of some description.

that said, why would you want a 'master' on tape? i certainly keep all my camera footage (even when shooting cf), but can't see any point in creating a hdv master on tape. keeping the veg and a couple of m2t's on various hd's is, for my part, more than adequate.

Leslie... to answer the question why?

I had a very bad thing hapen to me....I captured my videos to a hard drive from all 3 cams so I get 3 files for one project-A GL2 Folder, A HV30 Folder, and a HF200 folder (HD via SD card) The Hard Drives were in a Raid 1 config. So my thinking was I have the original tapes from 2 cams and 2 copies each on hard drives...Right???

Well one of my hard drives died, (a 1TB Seagate) so the raid software informed me of this-in the process of replacing the failed drive i accidently knocked the other drive onto the hard concrete floor.

It took me days to recapture the footage from the GL2 and The HDV tapes, but at least I still had it. If someone has a simplier backup workflow...PLEASE share with me!!

So what I would like to do is have a 3 tape backup for every important project. In the future perhaps I will have 2 tapes and a Blu Ray. 2011 is the year to build another editig PC, but thats another thread!

Grazie, you can do a Print to HDV Tape to and HDV camera set to HDV mode. You can also do a Print to DV Tape to any DV camera or HDV camera set to DV mode. Either should work fine.

So i take it everything has to be on the timeline first before it will work?

David, yes - you would finish your edit and then go to the print to tape option you need. That will put whatever is on the timeline onto tape.

when i did hdv to tape i usually rendered out the tl to a compliant m2t. i found that print to tape is VERY, VERY fussy - it has to be totally compliant!
