Basically, I don’t get playback on this thing (which is borrowed.) It seems like the only playback function is an End Search, and Final Cut Pro isn’t talking to it.
Any idea how to playback and/or capture with Final Cut Pro? Seems like it should be straightforward, but…
are you connecting your camera to your computer via firewire and turning it on before you launch FCP?
After that you go to File>Log and Capture
And some folks seem to forget that the camcorder has to be turned on and in play or vcr mode.
