OS 9.1 is the best!!! Level 2 Level 2 (195 points)

I use FCP 5 on my dual 1.8GHZ G4, recently I upgraded to FCP 5.0.4 and I got problems capturing so I don't know if it has any impact but when I capture video after 20 minutes I got a message error and I click ESC and no video is in the bin. I checked the capture scratch folder and the video is there but impossible to open it! so I trash it and try again. by luck I may have a ten minutes part of the video but the whole is inexitent!

any help?! I tried in the preference ticking off boxes but nothing seems to change.

    one thing you may want to check is if your "Capture now" system setting limit is set to 20 minutes or less.

    Go to FCP main menu>Final Cut Pro>System settings>check out the setting for "*Limit Capture Now*" (right at the bottom of the window).

    If it it is (I think it is by default) change the setting to the number of minutes you wish.

    That might be a lead.
