I have a Sony hdr-hc7 camera and have a lot of problems capturing the movie from tape into FCE. Today I found out that I shot the footage in DV instead of HDV, so set the codec in FCE to dv-PAL (Europe). It captured the video, but I had no audio? Does anyone know what codec I need to use then? And then, when I shoot my material in HDV, will setting the codec to Apple 1080i50 be sufficient to capture it in FCE? Capturing in iMovie worked fine. Should I capture in iMovie first then and then export to XML for FCE? I also have a lot of old avi-files but FCE does not recognize avi. By googling I found out that I need to convert it to another file, but what is best? MP4? MOV? And what program can I use best? Lost of questions, but I hope anyone from this forum can help me.
