deep breath Ben, then have another go at explaining with more detail if you can on the symptoms ... screen all over the place makes perfect sense to you who have seen it but is as clear as mud to the rest of us.17" MBP + FCP 5.1.2, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 9, 2007 4:12 AM (in response to Andy Mees)Yes, I am calm now!!!
Basically, I have checked to see if capture works and it works fine. When I go to edit video or print to video the image that fcp shows is not the same as the one showing on the Z1.
For example: I go to edit to tape and I put a new tape in. I then click on 'Black and Code' so it rewinds to the beginning and starts to black the tape. Only it doesn't because what shows on the cameras monitor is the blue LCD which is what shows when it is showing no signal. Sometimes it records a signal that is like a mix of colours on the screen.
When I actually come to record a FCP movie which has been exported and reimported into the browser. Mark in and out point and drag it to the assemble. I have put bars and tone on the front, but what happens is the image that shows on the camera is a jumbled up bars and tone, with bits on the image missing. And that signal remains recording to tape, where the image on the computer monitor is fine.
I have changed firewire cables, adjusted the camera settings and audio and video settings and I don't know what else to do to make it work??? Any suggestions?

it does sound like a settings issue.
are you working in DV or HDV? what are your sequence settings?
what exactly are your settings on the camera? theres a Z1 around here somewhere but I don't see it at the moment, it may be out on a shoot ... nonetheless if you list the settings it may help top jog your own or someone else's memory17" MBP + FCP 5.1.2, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
