    Can I capture in ProRes or is it HDV only?

      Just want to confirm that HDV/DV are the only capture formats I can use when digitizing from tape. Then I set my timeline settings to Pro Res 422 HQ to edit and export.

          Hi MTPO666,

          If you have a third party capture card, you can capture other formats. With no capture card, you are indeed limited to DV and HDV capture. In those cases, working with a Timeline setting set to anything but the native DV/HDV format will cause unnecessary processing. If you need ProRes output, you can export in one of its formats in the end.

           

          Good luck,
