      At what point during the output process are you experience problems?

      Are you getting any error messages?

      Ok. describe the problem. What’s happening? What are the steps your taking? When does the export fail? Etc. You’ve gotta give me something to work with, man. There could be any number of problems, andt I can’t help you if I don’t know what steps your taking. What exactly have you done?

      Hello! Me and some friends are shooting a private movie on a JVC GY HD-101, and we are editing on Final Cut Pro 7.0.2. We are shooting in HDV. The problem is that when we are importing the material, the camera does not connect with the computer. We have tried all sorts of setting, both on the camera and the iMac, and no one seems to fit each other… If you have anything we would be pleased to hear from you.

      AkselWeede,

      Be sure your Easy Setup is set up properly. This menu is located at FInal Cut Pro > Easy Setup

      Then be sure the camera is connected to the computer and set to VTR (or playback mode, whatever it is) BEFORE you launch Final Cut.

      Perhaps it is my Easy Setup settings that is wrong, but when I press “log and capture”, all I get is the errormassage:

      <p id=”_mcePaste” style=”position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;”>Device is not connected or the capture preset is not setup correctly. You may still log offline clips.
      <p id=”_mcePaste” style=”position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;”>
      <p id=”_mcePaste” style=”position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;”>This might also happen if you play DV footage in an HDV device.

      Device is not connected or the capture preset is not setup correctly. You may still log offline clips.
      This might also happen if you play DV footage in an HDV device.

      First of all: my camera is set on VTR, and connected with a firewire to the computer.

      Second of all: I`ve tried nearly all of the Easy Setup combinations that might be relevant.

      My present Easy Setup is as following, Format: HDV, Use: HDV – 720p25, Rate: 25 fps.

      Clearly this is not my area of expertise…

      Go to Apple > About This Mac > More Info.

      Click on the FireWire option on the left side of the window and make sure your Mac is recognizing your camera (camera should be on)

      If it does, then launch FCP. If it doesn’t keep fiddling around until it recognizes you camera.

      Also, does your camera have to be on HDV mode when you put it in VTR mode? I’m just guessing at this point…

      No the computer does not seem to recognize the camera… Do you think a VCR who can play HDV would solve the issue?

      Weird. Sometimes my mac doesn’t recognize my deck, but unplugging and plugging in the FW cable fixes that. Might wanna keep going that route.

      You could get a deck, but since you’re recording HDV with a JVC camera, you’re going to want a JVC deck. That’s expensive though – probably the same as (or close to) the cost of your camera

      But do you think a deck will solve the problem? Do you see another solution?

      i can’t be positive a deck will solve the problem. Could be as simple as a faulty FW cord. I would suggest trying to figure out how to get your mac to recognize your camera because the camera should work for capturing.
