Capturing footage in final cut pro question?
 
In final cut pro can I capture my footage in one long take and then trim it into individual clip so I dont have to use my camera as a edit deck? Thanks Gary Williams

Hi Gary,

The answer is YES; I do it all the time because it's faster than capturing individual clips. Then, you simply grab what you need from the long capture. If you want to make the grabs independent, you can do that too, you just need to have available space on your drives.

To capture an entire tape, it's easiest to just open Log and Capture, starting the tape playing at the beginning and hit capture NOW. Alternately, you can log the whole tape (set your in/out points) and do a batch capture. Hope that helps.

so how many gigs for a tape??

Depends on the format.

DV and HDV average out to be about 14-15 GBs for an hour of tape.

Try setting capture in FCP's AV Settings (Device Control) to HDV Firewire Basic... that is the low-end default for capture.

Gary, I am shooting with a Sony HVR-V1U and in HD I havent been able to get mine to capture one long clip. It will only capture each clip based on Record start and stop when I filmed. Even in capture now I cant do it. So if you get it to work in HD please post how. Thanks

There is a preset (I dont' know where it's located, and I think it's that what Dylan above refers to) in Final Cut Pro that it can automatically detect every shot, which can come in handy for some people...
If you want to capture in one lang take, you should turn that off...

That's in the capture window and called "create new clip on start/stop" or something like that.

DV start stop detect is in the mark menu. This is a cool feature if (and only if) you're working in DV.
So having captured your long clips you can click them into the viewer and go to the mark menu and click the DVstart/stop detect, and it will put markers in everywhere you started and stopped your camera while filming. In your browser the clip will now have a list of markers 1,2,3,4 etc which you can rename whatever you want to call the shots. You can then hilight and drag the markers into a bin which automatically makes the markers into subclips.

This is very cool and saves lots of time.
