    Final Cut Pro and HDV issue
    Final Cut Crashes and shuts down when I try to log and capture. Using 'easy setup", I use HDV1080i 60. So far, the only way I have been able to log and capture is by using the 'apple intermediate codec'. This is no good because of huge file sizes and it doesn't capture in real-time.
    Any ideas would be appreciated.


    My configuration:
    Final Cut Pro 5.0.4
    Camera Sony HDV-Z1U HDV1080I 60
    MacBook Pro 2 GB ram
    Intel Dual
    Firewire 400 transfer

    Apple makes it easy to be an artist or a hack, don't be a hack.

    i had the same problem a while back, hdv and FCP don't agree, i found the answer previously, but i can't find the step by step guide online anymore, found here are a few things that may help:

    if all else fails and you can't find a solution, the next best thing is to capture in imovie using full hd setting in the drop menu on the left, then move it over to FCP, but this eliminates logging your footage, which is a bummer.

    this may also help, although this is an older version of FCP i believe, give it a shot:
