I have a MacBook Pro I bought just under 3 years ago. Still using Panther and Final Cut Pro 4.5. Was working great until just recently. Suddenly I lost the ability to capture from Final Cut. Strangely, I can output video to the camera just fine. I can also capture just fine using iMovie. I think some software update killed Final Cut capture. (This happened previously when I tried to update to Tiger but the same version of Final Cut 4.5.) I reformatted my harddrive re-installed the OS and updates and Final Cut. Still can't capture. So, I know what you are saying--just capture using iMovie. Well, trouble is, once I capture in iMovie I end upw ith media in .dv format and FInal Cut won'r read it. The other day I managed to convert it to .mov and then import it to Final Cut. But today I tried again with another file and either I can't remember what I did last time, or else it isn't working this time. In any event, it's a timeconsuming, multi-step conversion. It used to be a simple matter to capture media; now it's a nightmare. I will probably upgrade to MacBook Pro and latest OS and Final Cut in early next year--but any ideas how I can get by in the meantime? Thank you!
