    For some reason, I can't seem to import my HDV footage from my HDR-FX1 camera into FCE 4. I've imported stuff in standard def fine, but can't figure out how to get it in at 1080.

    I'm using Easy Setup to set my project to HDV-Apple Intermediate Codec 1080i50, and when I go to capture, I get a window that says it's "cueing the camera". meanwhile, the camera has started to roll, or is already rolling, but the window just stays black.

    Any insights into what I'm doing wrong would be appreciated. Please keep in mind I'm fairly noobish though....

    Whup... think I found it. It was actually a setting on the camera - I had i.Link conversion to 480 on. Turned that off & we seem to be good...
