    A few details would help:

     

    What format are you trying to capture?

     

    What camera (or other device) are you capturing from?

     

    What capture settings are you using in FCE?

    Don't use the DV capture setting for HD footage ... use the appropriate HDV setting.

    Have you checked the camera's settings to make sure it is set to output HDV over Firewire (iLink)?  Details of how to set up the camera are in the user's manual.

    Capture Project is not for capturing clips from a camera before a Project is started.

    It's for recapturing the footage from a camera that has aready been captured and it will only work with DV cameras not HDV.

     

    HDV cameras may or may not output HDV because of the camera menu settings.

    Without some specifics about how the camera menu settings are set, we can only generalize about what FCE Easy Setup to use to get you going.

     

    Dig into the menu and relay what all the settings are.

    Try FCE>View>Refresh video devices.

    Go to camera menu settings:

    In/Out Rec

     

    HDV/DV Sel  -  Auto

    DV Rec Mode  -  SP (not applicable)

    Component  -  1080i/576i

    i.Link Conv  -  Off

    TV Type  -  16:9

    A/V DV Out  -  Off

     

    With the above settings you should be able to send HDV out of the camera over firewire.
