  • FCP5 firewire problems - horizontal bars/artifacts

    Anyone know why I'm getting strange artifacts and horizontal blocking on capture (and even playback)? I'm running FCP5 on a G5 attached to a G-RAID via 800 firewire. FW problems seem to occur with Sony GV-D300 deck and DCR-VX1000 camera connected via 400 firewire. I've switched cables between camera and computer, as well as trashed the prefs, and the problem remains.

    Maybe it's just that you had a head clog during recording. That what your description sounds like. Try just playing the tape in your camera and check for the problem to see if head clog was the problem.

      I've had similar problem with my SONY dsr20 deck with tape shot on my XL2- I can capture from camera, or I can capture from deck to iMOvie. I can also capture if I disconnect ALL firewire drives and connect deck to sole firewire 400 port. My next move is to by a pci card with firewire ports...
