Am I not capturing my footage properly?
Hi everyone, I have had my Sony HVR V1U for few months now, and i was wondering if I was capturing footage correctly.

Currently I only use normal MiniDV tapes shooting on 24P mode, so therefore in Final Cut Pro I go easy set up and under Use: i have DV-NTSC selected

Then I just capture 'normally' from there, however whenever I drag my captured footage into my sequence, it always asks me if I want sequence setting to match the clip setting..I automatically hit yes, so from there my resolution is 720X480....

am I doing anything wrong here/

thanks for the help guys

I dont think you are doing anything wrong, I always get this with final cut pro and see it as making sure that the system is optimised for the format that I am shooting in.

I shoot AVC Intra 100 1920x1080i 25np on a panasonic 301 P2 camera but I always have a check in the sequence settings box to make sure the the system is set OK after I have put the first shot on the timeline.

It sounds like you have not selected the Easy Setup to match your footage & that is why FCP prompts you to change the timeline settings to match. Regular DV NTSC is 29.97 fps If you choose the Easy Setup DV NTSC 24p (23.98) you should no longer see that message. The Easy Setup 'sticks' until you apply a new Easy Setup.
