    Hi,

    How long should it take a macbook to capture about 50 mins of HDV? I appreciate the capture lags behind the tape a bit (~30%) but i've left it going for about 2 hours now and it still says just 57% complete?

    Shall i just leave it going all afternoon?

    Any help appreciated, cheers

    PS - using Final Cut Express HD 3.5

    If it is worth having, then it is worth waiting for.

    i think it stalled.

    I'm now trying to capture in 10min chunks and saving between each capture.

    I think FCE has some problems throwing HDV through a not exactly high powered machine...
