Yes I am trying to Print to Tape, a Timeline which is Hi Def. I've done this several times but then I get times when it just doesn't do what it should. Sequence setting (I hope I understand what you mean)...Apple Intermediate Codec 1440x1080i50. The renders are set to 100% frame rate &100%resolution. Frame Blending is ON, Filters is ON
That's an HDV PAL Sequence.
Sounds like FCE is OK.
There are in/out settings on the Sony 700 that also need to be checked for incoming HDV.
HDV/DV set to HDV and iLink Conversion switched to OFF.
There is a delay while FCE prepares the export to tape but it sounds exessive in your case.
BTW: You don't need in/out points if the whole Timeline is being sent.
Many thanks for your input. I did check my iLink on the 700e menu and it is set to OFF. I also checked to see my
"format" was HDV which it wasn't (it was on Auto, though) so I changed it to HDV. Then I did away with the IN and OUT points and set the settings in the Print to Video window to "Play all Media". So then I rendered all and checked the Settings - and evoked Print to Video (I also set the 700e so I had to start it when asked - earlier it was on 'auto, start'.) So after transcoding to HDV (this movie is really short ....4.5 minutes) it tells me tranferring will take 43 minutes. Yikes!
So I'll mess around disconnect everything I can, Shut Down, Start Up, and try again. But thanks for your input.
May be not relevant - as I only use miniDV and SD-video
• Got problems with "Print back to Tape"
• Camera connected via FW
• Picture in Camera LCD-screen OK
• I just set Playhead in TimeLine to Start
• New tape in Camera
• Record on Camera - and Play in FinalCut
Yes this plain way I got a recording to tape as backup.
(but no count down and color chart at start)

HDV is a different kettle of fish - it also uses the so called Mini DV tape but otherwise is quite different from SD video. With SD everything is just fine, with Hi Def we're into different Codec for recording and different Codec for editing. A whole lot of transcoding has to go on before one can transfer the footage back to tape and stay in Hi Def. So - you are right in what you say so long as you aren't in Hi Def. In SD - it's a breeze - I often wish I'd stayed with it! But then - I'm old!
Thanks for your answer, though
