    I recently did a clean install of both Snow and the latest FCP.
    This is the first time I am capturing a DV tape since and it appears slow in the preview.
    When I play back a clip in the browser, it plays ok.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    That’s normal. It never plays full fps in the preview.

    [Steve Eisen] “That’s normal. It never plays full fps in the preview.”
    Right. FC never have played the full fps on capturing.
    That takes resources from the system and may jeopardize the capturing on a limited computer.

    If you get yourself a broadcast monitor it will play smooth on that one while capturing. But it’s really not an issue anyways.

    Thanks everyone. I guess it’s been a while since I captured tape. It seemed slower then usual but it works fine when played back.
