Love the “calf” concept. Changed jobs and just got a quad G5 with FCP Studio. Of course the system was ordered by someone who had no clue about video editing so the system is somewhat incomplete. No, media drives, only 1 gig ram, no audio/video interface, speakers or ntsc monitor. I came from the “other” editing platform so I’m not a newbie in the true sense. Enough back story. I’ve managed to install the software and poke around in the program, brings back fond memories of m100 and mac 9600. We’re using a sony dsr 40 deck to capture thru firewire and what I’m seeing in the capture window looks pretty bad and is somewhat jerky, I must have missed a setting or preference somewhere. Sorry for the long post – Ralph
Thanks for the response, I believe it’s the capture window. I’ll be boning up on my nomenclature. Also, I’m assuming that NTSC video monitoring is accomplished thru the deck once a sequence is created on the timeline?
