First of all sorry: i'm fullfilling the forum of questions, but as new PrPro user i have a lot of troubles.
Now the question: Is it possible to capture from firewire with a codec different from DV or HDV?
In PrPro CS4 there is a "quicktime" option for capture where i can chose every codec to capture video from firewire.
In the CS5.5 i only have DV/HDV and Blackmagic (my decklink card), no other options, and choosing DV i have no settings to change.
Moreover if i capture in DV in PrPro 5.5 audio is out of synch.
PS: I'm on MAC.
Capture is simply a transfer of the digital data from tape to hard drive. PP does not transcode to other codecs on the fly.
