FCP 6.0.5 and Sony HVR-M15U Deck
My head is hurting at the moment. I cannot get my Sony DV deck to be seen in FCP 6.0.5. I can see the deck as HDV. For DV mode, you have to turn off the iLink conversion. I have set the deck to iLink Set – Off. Normally, under normal circumstances, the deck will go in DV record mode. But on my Mac Pro, it will not.
Here’s the specs:
Mac Pro (Late 2007) Quad Pro 3.0
8 gig of matching paired RAM
FCS 2.0 with all of the latest updates.
AJA Kona 3 driver version 6.03
AJA Io driver version 2.01 – disconnected unless needed for capture from older tape decks
ATI Radeon XT1900 (512 RAM)
ATTO Celerity FC-42ES fiber channel card
Adobe Creative Suite Premium CS3 (with all updates applied)
I have checked Apple’s tech site and forums, nothing other than removing the old Quicktime receipts and reinstalling Quicktime. I tried this… Still nothing. I tried to use another deck, a Sony HVR-M10U. Nothing!
Before you say, its the firewire connection in the computer, HDV does work just fine. Its DV that doesn’t work. I wish I had an HVR-1500 deck so that I could bypass this issue, but I don’t have one.
