How do I capture HD footage from a JVC BR-HD50U???
by Rory Keenan 11 years ago
How do I capture HD footage from a JVC BR-HD50U It's a deck that plays miniDV and miniHD tapes. It has a FireWire output and an HDMI cable output. Most of the material was shot HD 720p at 60fps. Here

by Gary Morris McBeath 11 years ago
On the front of the unit there is a slider switch to output DV or HDV out of the firewire. What wasn't in some of the early manuals, is that you CAN NOT slide this switch when the deck is powered up.

Hi Glenn, No on the acceleration; I think the only AJA product that offers ProRes accel or processing is the Io HD. As far as capturing, I think your G5 dual 2.0 might be a little slow; I run a dual 2

I have a long-term project that will need to output in best possible quality HD (considering the inputs) eventually. It will mix a lot of HDV and SD DV footage, as well as large TIFF graphics. Current
Re: Enough oomph for FCP 6 and ProRes 422?

I also agree with Walter; capturing into ProRez directly is problematic, even on my 2.7. However, I just do a batch capture of HDV clips to a G-Raid, then select the ones I want and use Media Manager
