hey all...just getting back into video after a while out and here's where the problem begins....
found a new camera, nice 3CCD, asked to film a campus promotional movie so found the 16:9 option and looks sweet, filmed a whole bunch now i'm trying to put it onto computer it's proving to be a slight worry, can i capture 16:9 dv into fce2?
i've found the anamorphic setting, not sure what one to use though so went with the 'DV-PAL Anamorphic' made a new sequence and opened the capture window pane and it showed up with a 'preview disabled' screen, the vertical color lines and all, pressed play on the screen (fingers crossed) and it sent the command to the camera and after a whole 0.5 of a second it switched the camera to stop without showing anything on the screen.
thought about the scratch disks and they're all going to the right place, my external hard drive, tried the capture now and setting the time codes and the capture clip buttons...tried a whole bunch of things but i cant make the camera keep playing.
if it's human error i can change (i hope haha) but is there something i'm missing? i've used the program before a lot, but only with importing 4:3 footage with my old camera through iMovie.(not sure why i used to do this...seemed to be the easiest option.)
any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance, mark.
system: iBook G4 1gHz
