Using the Log and Capture Window

Using the Log and Capture Window

Final Cut Pro uses a tool aptly named the Log and Capture window, shown in Figure A.1, to log, capture, and digitize footage and control your video source machine or camera. When you use its deck controls, you see your footage and hear audio from your source machine if you use the capture presets you made in Chapter 3, “Understanding Final Cut Pro's Interface: An Overview.” To capture means to copy digital video into your computer, and to digitize means to change analog video such as VHS or Betacam SP into a digital file that your computer can deal with.
