HDV and Timecode breaks
Hello! I hope someone out there can assist me - I've been searching google and doing some trial and error, but cannot find a solution.
I have HDV video that I'm trying to capture into FCP 7. The footage has timecode breaks in it, some longer than others. I'd love to FCP to just gloss over them, ala capturing DV footage, but it seems it cannot.
Re-recording is not an option as the client doesn't want to pay for the additional work. The capture itself is a byproduct of the videographer not remembering to compress live on site.
Thanks for any help you might have!

what do you mean timecode breaks are longer then others? Meaning the black spaces between the clips, or the jump in the time is differernt?
Was the camera set to free run? so that every start and stop would result in jumping code, as opposed to linear code across the stops.
Perhaps you turn off deck control, and just roll in the video as 1 or 2 (or 5 ) clips.
Is having TC intact important? Do you have access to another camera or deck where you cut dump the footage to a new tape, with congruent code, then capture?

if all above doesn't work, try connecting your deck to a breakout box (matrox/aja/blackmagic) with component and analog audio; let the deck play and capture the stream from the box

grab apples FirewireSDK26 (it's free via apple developer) use the one of the apps inside that sdk CAPDV to import just the entire HDV transport stream then awhi
