Expanding a 6yr old mini-DV anamorphic project originally begun on FCP3. I want to capture and edit on my FCP 7 and transferred 4 1-hr cassettes. 2nd cassette though won't do 16:9,a few minutes at head is 4:3 accidentally but everything in anamorphic is squeezed. I captured at DVNTSC 48kHz anamorphic and it works fine on other 3 cassettes.


I tried another transfer of #2 cassette and it stopped with warning of "Capture encountered a problem reading data...etc." I tried several more times with same capture problem result.


My FCP3 version had image squeezed but has proper 16:9 output. Question is... is there some way to fix #2 cassette for my iMac FCP7 or do I go back to FCP3 on my old G4 where it seems to work fine.

    If the tape will play OK in a deck or camcorder, you could try dubbing to another tape, then capture from the duplicate.

    If you already have the footage available, transferring the file(s) to the other system would be the simplest solution.
