Lesson 8. Hardware and Interfaces > Capturing Video and Audio

Capturing Video and Audio

Finally: how do you get video and audio into and out of FCP?

DV over FireWire

If you have a Mac running FCP HD, and a DV-format deck with FireWire, you’re all set: FCP supports all flavors of DV (DV, DVCAM, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50, and DVCPROHD) captured and played back over FireWire. Plug a FireWire cable between deck and Mac, select the appropriate capture preset in FCP, and (if necessary) set the deck up for FireWire transfer, and you’re good to go. (See your deck’s manual; DVCPRO machines may require menu manipulation to “talk FireWire.”)
