im seeing the 'dv in' in vcr mode and have fcp4 set to send video apple firewire ntsc 720/480.

seeing no playback in the viewfinder, or on my tv (connected via rca)

Hello Heath,

Have you tried rebooting FCP while the camera is left on in VCR mode?


Greg Wolfinger October 17th, 2004 11:31 AM

make sure you have it set to view>external video>all frames or command-f12.

It should appear on your Viewfinder, but I believe the XL1s does not support pass-through so you won't be able to get it to a TV directly from your computer using the XL1s as the converter. Double check your manual or go to the Canondv.com website...

Wow...not with the XL1? I can with my GL1.

Guess I was wrong! I always use another camera as a deck anyway... but now I know I don't have to...
