    It'll be a tough job finding a copy of FCP7, it's been off the market for several years of course. If the install disc were corrupt (it's a DVD, so it could only be a surface scratch, not data...

    Hi

    You need to make sure your sequence is set to anamorphic PAL (I guess it's PAL because of the pixel counts). This means making sure the box is ticked in Sequence settings. Do this BEFORE you...

    Hi

    Render time depends on how many layers of FX there are, and especially any resizing of the clips. Sometimes it's worth exporting a self-contained quicktime movie (without the timecode) and...

    Also check your playback quality settings?
    Force a render all - does this change the quality?

    It's DV already so you're doing a straight transfer of bits not re-digitising as such. Is the miniDV 16:9 format? If not you've got to decide if you're zooming it to fill frame or not. FCP 7...

    Are you viewing at 100% in FCP? Jaggy on an external monitor?
    Interlace setting (mis)applied?
    Field order (called dominance in FCP)

    And highest quality ProRes, not LT (just checking)

    Work back down the chain. Play a DV tape in the DSR-11 first - check you have a working Firewire (I assume that's how you're connecting) path for control and for video/audio. Check settings (PAL...

    What I do in the first instance when it's not my footage is just to drop a clip into a sequence and agree to changing the settings to match the clip. When in doubt avoid extra renders. But if it's...

    Hi again

    There are two processes here - for FCP (7) to work with the footage it's got to firstly understand the file system/wrapping - which is what the Sony software does (rewrapping from mxf or...

    It's always wise with file-based footage to copy/clone the whole folder structure, not just the individual files. There's all sorts of meta-data which is needed to identify the clips, certainly...

    I see why you're asking. But if it's nanoflash footage, log and transfer won't work so none of the options is correct, because they don't offer the correct codec that the video on the disc is...

    Hi

    You have to import using whatever codec/standard they've shot at - set by the shooters on the nanoflash. So it'll be XDCAM - see the earlier thread (about two down), I embedded the link to...

    Hi

    A CLP folder containing MXF files looks like it's come from a nanoflash? My guess (and it is a guess from this distance) is that they will be XDCAM codec - to import you need one of the Sony...

    There's an app called MediaInfo (free to download from their site, or cheap from the App store) that might be able to help. It's designed to identify codecs / frame rates / whatever. If QT can...

    Thanks for jumping in, Z. I'm the other side of the pond and working at a client site (an internet and mobile phone dark ages site) so there's a timelag and an availability issue. Agree 100% with...

    Given it's a temporary fix and your priority is continuity of the project, why not clone the MBPro drive to an external, making it bootable (I recommend SuperDuper) - then use that as your boot /...

    If you're talking about standard def anamorphic shooting (was common for european broadcasting before HD) the answer is in your external monitor. So for 16:9 shoots you'd use a 16:9 monitor set to...

    If you dragged a corner of the wireframe that'll do a resize/zoom. If you pull at sides that'll twist the clip round. What you shouldn't do is 'distort' by dragging corners in the Motion/Distort...

    I think some of your confusion comes here. It's either anamorphic or it's letterboxed, unless you're dealing with wider than 16:9 (which is, let's say, minority interest). You identify clips as...

    Hi

    You say PAL HD - strictly speaking that's a contradiction in terms. If it's HD it ain't PAL :-) I guess you mean a 50Hz field rate, so is it 720p or 1080i? Just because it's a TK transfer...

    Assuming you're working in NTSC, then you'd choose the anamorphic NTSC option (either DV25 or DV50, depends what you've shot on) for capture. If you're in PAL, by the way, we have anamorphic DVCPRO...

    It's not a big deal. You just have to decide which standard you want to output, and set the sequence to that. Provided your clips are captured correctly, FCP displays them in the project either at...
