HDV capture?

HDV capture?
August 26, 2016 01:58PM
I am new to FCP-X having been using 7 for many years.

When capturing HDV directly from my Sony HDV deck into FCP-X is the footage automatically captured in the HDV format? If capturing 4K would this be captured automatically as 4K?

I have not been able to find an answer to this question in any manual.

Thanks in advance for your response.

My understanding is that FCPX will capture it in the HDV codec and put it in a .mov container. I believe the HDV codec can be "optimized" (converted to ProRes after capture is complete).

Thanks Craig for your response to my question. It is important that I retain the HDV quality in my final project, however, when I check the footage out on an excellent monitor it seems to be lacking the HDV sharpness.

Is there another method that I can use to determine if it is indeed HDV?

Thanks again.
