I am using PPO 5.5 and capturing an HDV tape shot in HDV. When I capture it creates an MPEG file. I am using Bridge to view files after capture for scene and sequence selection. These files, although 5 min long are large and it takes forever to bring up in bridge. The same type files taken by my Canon 7D DSLR which are .MOV files come right up in Bridge. Can I capture these files to a .MOV or PRo Res 422 file while in the Capture mode in PPO 5.5 from the mini tape?

HDV capture via firewire is mpeg only.
Why not load the mpeg into a PrPro project and then use the source viewer for scene selection. You can change the size of the source viewer to obtain a large image. It's been my experience that PrPro processes MPEG rather quickly once they have been captured and conformed.
