Lesson 9. Capturing Footage > Choosing Capture Settings

Choosing Capture Settings

Before you begin capturing your clips, you have to choose how you will control the playback device, what Easy Preset option you will use to capture the footage, and where you will place it on your hard drive or FireWire drive.

Note

HDV is a newer format that records video and sound as separate MPEG files. During capture, Final Cut Pro transcodes the MPEG files into a QuickTime movie with combined audio and video tracks. If you selected the HDV Easy Setup preset, you will see a slightly different capture window. The log and capture options that appear function the same as those in the default window.
