    Not all cameras are compatible with final cut.
    I have a problem digitising footage into final cut from my Sony HD 1080i/mini DV camera.
    It used to work ok, albeit with some rendering issues.I had it set to the HD settings. Suddenly it stopped working
    I have tried adjusting the audio visual settings, using several different types. The only one i could get it to communicate on was DV50 pal 48Hz anamorphic.But it stops digitising after 3/4 sec and says there is a problem with my source tape.

    I dont mind digitising at a lower rate as i use I movie to burn my DVDs and it doesn't have a blue ray burner .

    I used to use a college three chip cannon camera with no probs before this and could even use my sony HD camera to digitise stuff I had recorded on that.
    so I dont understand why things have suddenly gone wrong....
    can anyone out there help me

    Have you tried another tape?

    What is the message appearing on the bottom of the Capture window (the one that shows the video)?

    Has the tape a time code break at any place?

    And using the Digital Video subforum might give you more answers.
