Final Cut Pro 5.1.2 supports native editing of XDCAM HD. Ingest and export of XDCAM HD video requires additional software from Sony. You can find out more about the XDCAM and XDCAM HD formats at http://www.sony.com/xdcamhd. For a thorough explanation of how to use XDCAM HD with Final Cut Pro: In Final Cut Pro, choose Help > HD and Broadcast Formats and refer to the chapter about XDCAM HD. See http://bssc.sel.sony.com/BroadcastandBusiness/markets/10014/docs/ FCP_XDCAMHD_whitepaper.pdf.
Real-Time Support for MPEG IMX at 30 Mbps
Final Cut Pro 5.1.2 solves an issue that allows real-time playback and effects support for MPEG IMX at 30 Mbps (this includes both NTSC and PAL standards).
PCI Express Card Compatibility
When using a Mac Pro computer, there are restrictions concerning which slot you can install a PCI Express card into. For more details, see the documentation for the Expansion Slot Utility included with the Mac Pro computer.
Changing Broadcast WAVE Audio File Timecode to Drop Frame
When you import Broadcast WAVE files into Final Cut Pro, the timecode within the file is always interpreted as non-drop frame timecode. To modify the timecode of a Broadcast WAVE file to drop frame: 1 In the Browser, select the audio clip whose timecode you want to modify. 2 Choose Modify > Timecode, then choose Drop Frame from the Format pop-up menu.
Select Previous and Next Tab Commands
In Final Cut Pro 5.1.2, you can move through the tabs of the active window using the following keyboard shortcuts: Select Previous Tab: Command-[ Select Next Tab: Command-] These commands appear in the Tools category within the Button List window. Choose Tools > Button List (or press Option-J) to open the Button List window.
Managing and Revealing Master Clips
In previous versions of Final Cut Pro, affiliate clips shared data with a master clip stored in the Browser. If you deleted the master clip, a dialog would appear requesting confirmation that you wanted to break the master-affiliate clip relationship. If you clicked OK, all of the affiliated clips would become independent. In Final Cut Pro 5.1.2, deleting a master clip no longer breaks the relationship between affiliated clips. Instead, the master-affiliate clip relationship still exists even when the master clip in the Browser is deleted. No dialog appears when you delete a master clip. Also, when you open an older project in Final Cut Pro 5.1.2, master clips are no longer created in the Browser. To create master clips for your sequence clips, you can use the Create Master Clips command described below. To create one or more master clips from independent sequence clips: m Select one or more independent sequence clips and drag them from the sequence to the Browser. Master clips are created for each independent clip dragged to the Browser.
Note: Preferred effects settings are not affected if you delete your Final Cut Pro preferences file. The following list shows Motion FxPlug plug-ins that closely match the behavior of existing FXScript plug-ins in Final Cut Pro, but whose names are slightly different:
FXScript (Final Cut Pro) Basic Border Brightness and Contrast Brightness and Contrast Blue and Green Screen Spill Suppressor - Blue Spill Suppressor - Green Gamma Correction FxPlug (Motion) Simple Border Brightness Contrast Blue Green Screen Spill Suppressor Gamma
Note: In Final Cut Pro 5.1.2, three additional video filter bins appear in the Effects tab and Effects menu: Glow, Tiling, and Time. Identifying Video Filters in the Filters Tab of the Viewer You can identify FxPlug plug-ins in the Filters tab of the Viewer by moving the pointer over the filter name and then waiting until a tooltip appears. FxPlug plug-ins are identified with the word FxPlug after the filter name. Identifying Video Effects in the Find Results Window If you use the Find command to search for effects, keep in mind that the Find Results window does not display the Effect Class column, which helps to distinguish between FXScript and FxPlug plug-ins. If you see duplicate filters in the Find Results window after using the Find command, you can identify each effect by selecting it in the Find Results window and then clicking Show in Browser. Final Cut Pro displays the selected filter in the Effects tab, where you can identify the effect by looking in the Effect Class column. Moving Projects Between Systems If you have a project that uses particular FxPlug plug-ins, you need to install those plug-ins on each machine where you want to open the project. If you open a project on a system that does not have the necessary FxPlug plug-ins installed, Final Cut Pro warns you that plug-ins are missing, although it does not specify which ones. Note: When sending sequence clips from Final Cut Pro to a Motion project, effects are not preserved. When moving projects from one system to another, be aware that the capabilities of each computers graphics card may be different, limiting which FxPlug plug-ins you can render at high resolution and high-precision YUV quality. For more information, see Real-Time Playback and Rendering, next.
FxPlug Restrictions and Troubleshooting When using FxPlug plug-ins with Final Cut Pro, the following restrictions apply: Some plug-ins with custom controls are not supported. Onscreen controls, such as control points in the Viewer and Canvas, are not supported. Effects that result in subtle gradations (such as a Gradient generator or Gaussian Blur filter) can cause colored vertical banding after rendering. This kind of banding is likely an artifact of rendering in a low-resolution codec (such as DV) and not an issue with the filter. Try setting your sequence settings to an Uncompressed 8- or 10-bit sequence preset instead. FxPlug plug-ins that render in RGB color space may cause clipping, especially when applied to YCBCR clips with high chroma or luma values. This may be particularly noticeable when applying an FxPlug filter to a range of a clip, instead of an entire clip.
Full Frame Bars and Tone Generators for 25 fps (PAL) Formats
The following PAL-compliant Bars and Tone generator clips have been added to Final Cut Pro 5.1.2: Bars and Tone (HD 25p/50i Full Frame) Bars and Tone (PAL Full Frame) Also, the Bars and Tone (HD 1080i50) generator has been renamed Bars and Tone (HD 25p/50i). In the Mastering Settings tab in the Edit to Tape window, you can now choose the Full Frame Bars option when the current device control preset has a frame rate of 25 fps (PAL). When you select this option, full-frame bars are output to tape. When this option is not selected, SMPTE bars are output just as in earlier versions of Final Cut Pro. Note: If the current device control preset does not have a frame rate of 25 fps, this option is unavailable.
Gamma Control for Imported Still Images
Because many graphics applications do not embed gamma information in still-image files, Final Cut Pro 5.1.2 allows you to define the gamma setting of imported still-image clips. You may want to adjust the gamma of an imported still image when: You know its gamma value but Final Cut Pro cannot determine the value automatically You want to control image brightness, especially when you need to match a still image to similar-looking video clips A still-image clips Gamma Level property tells Final Cut Pro what brightness curve it should assume the clip has. Final Cut Pro compensates for the Gamma Level property by applying an opposing brightness curve to the still-image clip.
Choosing Audio Mapping for Multichannel Audio Output
If you have a VTR or audio device that supports RS-422 remote control, you can enable recording of individual audio channels during output with the Edit to Tape window (also known as insert editing). Final Cut Pro 5.1.2 allows you to enable recording of up to 16 individual audio channels for insert editing. Note: If you use FireWire or the Print to Video command for output to tape, you can skip this section. You can record-enable individual audio channels in the Edit to Tape window by choosing channels from the Audio Insert pop-up menu.
Audio Insert pop-up menu
When you start the output process, Final Cut Pro sends a channel insert message that tells the deck which channels you chose from the Audio Insert pop-up menu. However, different decks expect audio channel information to be in different places within the message, potentially leading to unexpected enabling or disabling of channels. To ensure that Final Cut Pro sends audio channel insert information in the proper format, you need to choose an audio mapping setting in your device control preset before you edit to tape. Important: The audio mapping setting does not determine which audio channels are inserted. Instead, it determines the format in which Final Cut Pro communicates which audio channels to insert. The following chart shows some common video and audio recording decks and the appropriate audio mapping setting for each.
Recording device Sony UVW-1800, Sony BVW-70 (BetacamSP) Sony DVW-500 (Digital Betacam), Sony HDW-2000 (HDCAM), Panasonic AJ-SD930 (DVCPRO 50) Sony MSW-2000 (IMX), Panasonic AJ-HD3700 (D5-HD) Tascam DA-98 Sony SRW-5505 (HDCAM SR) Channels available for insertion on deck 2 channels 4 channels Audio mapping 2 channels 4 channels
8 or more channels 8 channels 12 channels
8 channels 8 channels (legacy) 12 channels
If you are uncertain which audio mapping setting to use for your deck, here are several guidelines: 2 channels: Older decks that only have analog audio inputs (for example, BetacamSP and U-Matic 3/4") typically allow two channels of audio insert editing. Note: Some BetacamSP decks have four audio channels, but channels 3 and 4 cannot be inserted independently from the video channel (thus these decks are still considered two-channel decks for the purpose of audio insert editing). 4 channels: Many professional digital video decks today (Digital Betacam, DVCPRO 50, HDCAM) support at least four channels of audio insert editing. 8 channels: Some newer digital video decks (D5-HD, IMX) support eight channels of audio insert editing. 8 channels (legacy): Several older audio-only decks such as the Tascam DA-98 support eight-channel insert editing, but they communicate differently than newer digital video decks. If you are using a Tascam DA-98 or similar device, try this option. 12 and 16 channels: Newer high definition HDCAM SR decks support 12 channels of audio insert editing.

Canon HDV XL-H1 Support
Final Cut Pro 5.1 recognizes the Canon HDV XL-H1 camcorder for most Final Cut Pro operations, including Log and Capture and Print to Video. To set up Final Cut Pro to capture and output to the Canon HDV XL-H1 camcorder: 1 Connect one end of a FireWire cable to a FireWire port on your computer, and the other end to a FireWire port on your camcorder. 2 Choose Final Cut Pro > Easy Setup. 3 Select the Show All checkbox in the Easy Setup dialog. 4 Choose an Easy Setup that corresponds to your Canon HDV XL-H1 footage: HDV - 1080i50 FireWire Basic HDV - 1080i60 FireWire Basic
Canon HDV XL-H1 Setup
When using the Canon HDV XL-H1 camcorder with Final Cut Pro, keep the following in mind: Final Cut Pro captures the first two audio channels only, even though the camcorder can record four channels. (With the addition of a third-party HD-SDI video interface, it is possible to capture four channels.) For proper DV Start/Stop Detection operations, set the clock of the Canon HDV XL-H1 camcorder before recording any footage with it. (This is a one-time step for new camcorders.) The Log and Capture window may be unresponsive when the FREERUN-PS option is chosen on the Canon HDV XL-H1 camcorder. You can change this setting on the camcorder by pressing the Menu button and then choosing Signal Setup > Time Code > Count-Up > Rec-RUN.
Using Print to Video with HDV Footage
In Final Cut Pro 5.0.4 and earlier, no audio was output from HDV sequences after the retry alert message appeared during Print to Video operations. This issue has been resolved.
Previewing Video During HDV Capture
Final Cut Pro 5.1 resolves an issue in which the quality of the preview video shown on your computer screen would degrade when capturing 720p HDV for 10 minutes or longer.
Fast Forward Timeline Playback Issue Resolved
Final Cut Pro 5.1 resolves an issue in which mouse movement would cause the Canvas and the video on an external monitor to freeze during Fast Forward and Fast Reverse playback.
Switching Angles in Multiclips with Multichannel Audio
When switching or cutting multiclips with three or more audio clip items, unexpected results can occur when you switch only a subset of tracks at once (for example, if you are switching tracks A1 and A2 in a multiclip containing four audio clip items). In Final Cut Pro 5.1, you can ensure proper angle switching by stopping playback and selecting the multiclip before you switch or cut the angles.
To switch or cut a subset of audio channels in a multiclip with multichannel audio: 1 Edit a multiclip with three or more audio clip items into your sequence. 2 Choose View > Multiclip Active Tracks > Audio, then select the audio channels you want to cut or switch. For example, if you want to switch only audio items 1 and 2 in the multiclip without affecting audio items 3 and 4, choose View > Multiclip Active Tracks > Audio > A1+A2. 3 Play the sequence. 4 Make a single cut or switch by doing one of the following: Press an assigned keyboard shortcut to switch or cut multiclip audio items. Click a button in the button bar to switch or cut multiclip audio items. The audio clip items you cut or switched are no longer linked to the original multiclip you added to the sequence; they now comprise an unrelated multiclip with only two audio channels. To continue switching or cutting the new multiclip, you must select it first. Otherwise, Final Cut Pro will continue switching the multiclip in the highest-numbered video track, which is the original multiclip. 5 Stop playback. 6 Select the new multiclip in the Timeline. 7 Move the playhead to the desired location of the edit. 8 Do one of the following: Press an assigned keyboard shortcut to switch or cut multiclip audio items. Click a button in the button bar to switch or cut multiclip audio items.
Using Paste Attributes to Paste Subclip Contents
In Final Cut Pro 5.0 or later, if you copied a subclip and used the Paste Attributes command with the Content checkbox selected in the Paste Attributes dialog, the pasted media always began from the source clips Media Start point (the beginning of its media file) instead of the beginning of the subclip (designated by its subclip limits). In Final Cut Pro 5.1, this issue has been resolved. The Paste Attributes command now uses the subclip limits when you select the Content checkbox.
Using the Media Manager to Delete Unused Media
Final Cut Pro 5.1 resolves several issues related to the Delete Unused option in the Media Manager: Working with clips with speed changes: Choosing Create Offline and selecting Delete Unused no longer results in sequences with gaps between edits. Processing multiclips: Choosing Copy or Recompress and selecting Delete Unused now correctly deletes media from angle 1 of a multiclip. Processing clips with negative speed: Choosing Copy or Create Offline and selecting Delete Unused no longer results in media with shortened audio. Processing offline clips: Selecting the Delete Unused option no longer results in a new project in which offline clips are untrimmed, so you no longer need to recapture the original media file duration.
Using Scale and Motion Blur Simultaneously on Still Images
Final Cut Pro 5.1 resolves an issue in which simultaneous use of the Scale and Motion Blur motion parameters on still images would result in visual artifacts in uncompressed 10-bit sequences.
Reconnecting Media Files Automatically
In previous releases, Final Cut Pro detected when a clips media file was altered and the clip went offline. The only exception to this behavior was when you modified a clips media file by using the Open in Editor command. In this case, Final Cut Pro would automatically reconnect a clips media file when you returned to Final Cut Pro from the external editor application. In Final Cut Pro 5.1, you can configure Final Cut Pro to always reconnect modified media files, even if you dont use the Open in Editor command. This means that when you modify media files in other applications, the clip does not go offline when you return to Final Cut Pro. To configure Final Cut Pro to always reconnect modified media files: 1 Choose Final Cut Pro > User Preferences. 2 Click the Editing tab. 3 Select the Always Reconnect Externally Modified Files option. Warning: Be cautious when you select this option, particularly in a shared environment (such as an Xsan environment) in which media drives are shared for collaborative editing. If you (or someone else) modifies media files in other applications, Final Cut Pro will not notify you when clips are reconnected. For example, if someone changes the duration of a media file in Soundtrack Pro, Final Cut Pro does not warn you that the clip duration has changed. If you want to ensure that clips are only reconnected when you use the Open in Editor command, deselect the Always Reconnect Externally Modified Files option.
Shuttle Control Issue with Wacom Tablets Resolved
Final Cut Pro 5.1 resolves an issue in which the shuttle controls in the Viewer and the Canvas did not function with Wacom tablets.
Issue with Play to Next Marker and Play Current Marker Resolved
Final Cut Pro 5.1 resolves an issue in which the Play to Next Marker and Play Current Marker commands (available when you choose Tools > Button List and click the Transport disclosure triangle) would play one too many frames, and then back up and stop on the correct frame.
XML File Import Issue Resolved
Final Cut Pro 5.1 resolves issues in Final Cut Pro 5.0 and later versions involving importing XML files, telecine logs (FLEx files), and Avid Log Exchange (ALE) files.
Autosave and Auto Render Alert Message Issue Resolved
Final Cut Pro 5.1 resolves performance and reliability issues involving the display of Autosave, Auto Render Complete, and Drop Frame alert message dialogs.
Third-Party Video Plug-in Support
Final Cut Pro 5.1 does not support Adobe After Effects plug-ins on Intel-based Macintosh computers. Note: Boris Calligraphy has been updated for Final Cut Pro 5.1, and is supported on both PowerPC-based and Intel-based Macintosh computers.
Final Cut Pro 5.1 Project Format
The Final Cut Pro 5.1 project format has been updated, so you cannot open Final Cut Pro 5.1 projects in previous versions of Final Cut Pro.
Previous Release Information About Final Cut Pro 5.0.4
The following information was included with Final Cut Pro 5.0.4, a maintenance release of Final Cut Pro 5 that resolves performance and other issues.
Performance Issue Resolved
Final Cut Pro 5.0.4 improves the performance of the application with sequences that exceed 1 hour in duration or contain many markers.
720p Captures with PCI Cards
Final Cut Pro 5.0.4 addresses an issue with 720p captures using PCI cards, which sometimes resulted in problematic captures.
Video and Audio Sync with Panasonic DVCPRO 50 Devices
Final Cut Pro 5.0.4 resolves an issue in which media captured via FireWire in the DVCPRO 50 format may have had a variance in video and audio sync of as much as 1.5 frames.
An individual P2 memory card appears on the desktop.
6 Do one of the following: Import the media from the P2 card. For instructions on importing P2 media, see Importing Media from P2 Memory Cards on page 28. Copy the media to a hard disk. For instructions on importing P2 media from a hard disk, see Importing P2 Media from a Hard Disk on page 30. 7 When you have finished, eject (unmount) the P2 card before disconnecting the camcorder, or before removing the card. Warning: Final Cut Pro only recognizes P2-compliant folders that include the original media files, descriptive metadata, and a corresponding set of XML index files. If you need to copy the contents of a P2 card to a hard disk, duplicate the contents without making any changes. (Dont copy only the CONTENTS folder; copy the enclosing folder.)
Capturing over FireWire as if the P2 Card Were a VTR While traditional Log and Capture procedures are familiar to Final Cut Pro users, this is the slowest ingest method (of the four described here) because it is limited to real-time speeds. However, two benefits of this method include: It allows you to log media on the P2 cards. Final Cut Pro will remove duplicate (flagged) frames from progressive footage during capture. Note: With the new 720pn 24 / 30 (progressive native) format, the AG-HVX200 camcorder can also do this process automatically while it is recording media to the P2 card. However, this format requires P2 Import (rather than Log and Capture). To capture from a P2 memory card as if it were a VTR: 1 Connect one end of the FireWire cable to the FireWire port on the camcorder. 2 Connect the other end of the FireWire cable to a FireWire port on your computer. 3 Insert the P2 memory card containing the clips you want to capture into one of the slots in the camcorder. 4 Turn on the camcorder and confirm the Camera mode settings. For more information, see Preparing the AG-HVX200 on page 23. 5 Switch the camcorder to MCR/VCR mode. Important: Do not open Final Cut Pro until after you switch to MCR/VCR mode. Otherwise, device control or video passthrough may not be available. 6 Use the Audio Dub/Thumbnail button to switch out of Thumbnail mode. Note: To start capturing from a particular point in the footage, first use the camcorders Thumbnail feature to select a particular clip, then use the Audio Dub/Thumbnail button to switch out of Thumbnail mode. 7 Open Final Cut Pro and choose Final Cut Pro > System Settings, then click the Scratch Disks tab. 8 Select a scratch disk or folder to which you want to transfer your P2 media. For more information about selecting scratch disks, see the Final Cut Pro 5 User Manual, Volume I, Chapter 13, Connecting DV Video Equipment and Specifying Initial Settings. 9 In Final Cut Pro, choose File > Log and Capture (or press Command-8). 10 Do one of the following: Click the Play button. Press the Space bar. 11 When youre ready to begin capturing, click the Capture Now button.
Using Subclips with 24@25 Timecode
Final Cut Pro 5.0.3 resolves cases where subclips created from clips with 24@25 fps timecode had inaccurate timecode.
Using DVCPRO HD Easy Setups with Panasonic AJ-HD1200A (Japanese Version Only)
Final Cut Pro 5.0.3 updates the Japanese DVCPRO HD Easy Setups to properly communicate with Panasonic AJ-HD1200A VTRs.
Updating Uncompressed 8- and 10-Bit PAL Easy Setups
The field dominance settings of the capture and sequence presets within the Uncompressed 8- and 10-bit PAL Easy Setups are now both properly set to Upper (Odd). The Final Cut Pro 5.0.3 installer copies an updated version of these Easy Setups into each language folder within /Applications/Final Cut Pro Additional Easy Setups/. To make the Uncompressed 8- and 10-bit PAL Easy Setups available for use in Final Cut Pro: 1 In the Finder, navigate to /Applications/Final Cut Pro Additional Easy Setups/, then open the folder for the language you prefer. This folder contains the updated versions of the Uncompressed 8- and 10-bit PAL Easy Setups. 2 Choose File > New Finder Window (or press Command-N), then navigate to /Library/ Application Support/Final Cut Pro System Support/Custom Settings/. This folder contains the older version of the Uncompressed 8- and 10-bit PAL Easy Setups. 3 Select the updated version of the Uncompressed 8- and 10-bit PAL Easy Setups. Note: If you are using the Japanese version of Final Cut Pro 5.0.3, also include the Uncompressed 8- and 10-bit NTSC Easy Setups in your selection. 4 Do one of the following: Choose File > Copy (or press Command-C), click in the Custom Settings window, then choose File > Paste (or press Command-V). Option-drag the updated version of the Uncompressed 8- and 10-bit PAL Easy Setups to the Custom Settings window. Note: Users of the Japanese version of Final Cut Pro 5.0.3 must also Option-drag Uncompressed 8- and 10-bit NTSC Easy Setups. 5 If a Copy dialog appears asking if you want to replace the Easy Setup files, click Replace.
Previous Release Information About Final Cut Pro 5.0.2
The following information was included with Final Cut Pro 5.0.2, a maintenance release of Final Cut Pro 5 that resolves performance and other issues.
Improvements have been made in these areas: exporting EDLs, switching angles with speed settings applied, media management, recapturing single angles, resynchronizing multiclip angles in the Viewer, maintaining master-affiliate clip relationships when switching angles, and inserting or deleting angles from multiclips whose angle durations vary widely.
New Browser Icon Sizes and Arrange Modes Icons in the Browser are now larger and display item duration as well as item name. You can also arrange Browser items by name or by duration.
Plug-ins and Effects
Boris Calligraphy Updated to Version 2.0 Boris Calligraphy 2.0 is included with Final Cut Pro 5. For a list of new features, see the documentation included on the Final Cut Pro 5 installation disc. FXScript Documentation Now Available on the Apple Applications Developer Website The FXScript documentation can now be downloaded in PDF format from the Apple Applications Developer website. To download the FXScript documentation, visit http://developer.apple.com/documentation/appleapplications. FXScript Debugging You can now use the debugtext() FXScript command to print variable values and text to the Mac OS X Console. This allows you to check variable values while you test scripts in FXBuilder. The following example describes a typical workflow for displaying the results of the debugtext() command in the Mac OS X Console: 1 In Final Cut Pro, choose Tools > FXBuilder. 2 In the FXBuilder Text Entry tab, enter the following code:
input SliderValue, "Slider", slider, 50, 1, 100 detent 5; code float DoubleSliderValue; DoubleSliderValue = SliderValue * 2; debugtext ("----------------"); debugtext (SliderValue,DoubleSliderValue);
3 In the Finder, do one of the following: Navigate to /Applications/Utilities/. Press Shift-Command-U.
4 In the Utilities folder, double-click the Console icon. A Console window appears. Note: If the Console window is not titled Console.log, choose File > Open (or press Shift-Command-O). 5 Choose Edit > Clear Display (or press Command-K). The log in the Console window is cleared. 6 In Final Cut Pro, click the FXBuilder Text Entry tab to make it active, then choose FXBuilder > Run (or press Command-K). 7 Click the FXBuilder Input Controls tab. 8 Adjust the slider in the FXBuilder Input Controls tab. As you adjust the slider, the slider values are added to the log in the Console window. 9 Click the FXBuilder Text Entry tab, then choose FXBuilder > Stop.
Working with HDV
Print to Video Limitations Using HDV Formats On computers with the minimum system requirements for HDV playback (1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 167 MHz bus speed), the Print to Video command cannot be used if the Mirror on desktop option is turned on. To turn off the Mirror on desktop option: 1 Choose Final Cut Pro > Audio/Video Settings, then click the A/V Devices tab. 2 Deselect the Mirror on desktop checkbox. 3 Click OK. HDV Log and Capture Preview Is Disabled When a PCI Graphics Card Is Installed If your computer has a PCI graphics card installed and you are logging or capturing HDV footage, Final Cut Pro does not preview video or audio in the Log and Capture window. You can still log and capture, but you need to use your HDV camcorder display to preview video. Sony Native MPEG-2 Media Must Be Exported for Use in DVD Studio Pro Sony HDV media records MPEG-2 media using an open GOP structure, which means that B-frames in the MPEG stream may be reliant on frames in adjacent GOPs (groups of pictures). In some cases, using open GOP media in DVD Studio Pro can cause DVD decoder problems. This is particularly a problem at the start and end frames of the media files. To properly transfer open GOP MPEG-2 HDV media to DVD Studio Pro after capturing in Final Cut Pro, you should export your media from Final Cut Pro using the Export QuickTime Movie command. This command conforms the beginning of the MPEG-2 media to a closed GOP structure, which is compatible with DVD decoders.
HDV Footage with Timecode Breaks May Report a Stream Error During Capture If you choose the Abort Capture option from the On timecode break pop-up menu in the General tab of User Preferences, capturing stops when a timecode break is detected. Depending on the signal on tape, you may see one of two messages: A stream error message A timecode break error message
Capturing and Outputting
Capturing Footage Across Timecode Hour 23 and 00 Results in Two Clips When you capture footage that spans timecode hour 23 and timecode hour 00, Final Cut Pro handles this timecode transition as a timecode break. If you choose the Make New Clip option from the On timecode break pop-up menu in the General tab of User Preferences, Final Cut Pro creates two clips. The Media Start timecode of the second clip begins shortly after the pre-roll time specified in the Editing tab of User Preferences has passed. This provides sufficient pre-roll time for the VTR to recapture the clip later while avoiding the timecode break.
Importing and Exporting
Turning Off Internet Streaming Options When Exporting QuickTime Movies For best results, turn off Internet streaming options when using the Export Using QuickTime Conversion command. Avoid Using QuickTime for High Definition to Standard Definition Downconversion When converting high definition media to standard definition media, you should do one of the following: Use the Export Using Compressor command. Edit (or nest) high definition clips or sequences into a standard definition sequence with the appropriate settings, and then export the sequence. This option properly deinterlaces video before scaling, and then reintroduces interlacing after scaling. For example, if you want to export a high definition sequence to DV NTSC settings, create a sequence using the DV NTSC Easy Setup, drag the original high definition sequence into the DV sequence, and then export the DV sequence using the Export QuickTime Movie command. Note: Avoid converting high definition media directly to standard definition media by using the Export Using QuickTime Conversion command with Browser clips in your project. This approach may introduce interlacing artifacts when the video is scaled.

Upgrading Mac OS X and QuickTime
Before you install Final Cut Studio, update your system software to make sure that you have the latest version of Mac OS X installed. You also need to upgrade to the latest version of QuickTime. QuickTime is an industry standard for working with digital video and is required for Final Cut Studio. Note: For minimum software requirements, see the Before You Install Final Cut Studio document on the Final Cut Studio installation disc. Important: You must purchase Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger or later if youre upgrading from Mac OS X v10.3 Panther or an earlier version. To update your system software: 1 Choose Apple menu > Software Update. A dialog appears showing new or updated software available for your computer. 2 If necessary, follow the onscreen instructions to update Mac OS X and QuickTime to the latest versions. Important: Installing Final Cut Studio and entering the serial number automatically unlocks the extended multimedia capabilities of QuickTime Pro 7.
Installing Final Cut Studio
When you install Final Cut Studio, its applications are placed in the Applications folder on your startup disk. You can choose whether the content for each application (such as templates) is placed in the default location or in a custom location. Warning: If your system does not meet the minimum system requirements for any of the Final Cut Studio applications, installation of those applications will not be allowed. Refer to the Before You Install Final Cut Studio document on the Final Cut Studio installation disc for a list of minimum system requirements. Installing Final Cut Studio requires you to insert each of the discs, starting with the Final Cut Studio installation disc. After you finish installing that disc, you then continue installing Final Cut Studio by inserting each of the remaining discs when prompted. Important: You must start with the Final Cut Studio installation disc even if you do not intend to install any of the applications it contains. In other words, even if you only want to install DVD Studio Pro, for example, you need to start with the Final Cut Studio installation disc and select DVD Studio Pro in the Custom Install window that appears. Note: Before you can install the software, you need to log in to your computer with an administrator account, using the administrator password. See Mac Help for more information.
To enter the serial number and install Final Cut Studio: 1 Insert the Final Cut Studio installation disc into your computers DVD drive. 2 Double-click the Install Final Cut Studio icon, then follow the onscreen instructions. 3 The installer performs a system requirements check to determine if the Final Cut Studio applications can be installed. Click Continue. 4 Read the Welcome information, then click Continue. 5 Read the Software License Agreement, click Continue, then (if you agree) click Agree. 6 Select the startup disk, then click Continue. Your startup disk must have the latest version of Mac OS X installed. 7 In the User Information pane, enter your first and last name. Entering an organization is optional.
Enter your name (required). Enter your organization (optional). Enter your serial number, including dashes (required).
8 In the Serial Number field, enter the Final Cut Studio serial number printed on the Software Serial Number label attached to the front of this document, then click Continue. The Custom Install window appears. Following are some tips for entering your serial number correctly: Make sure you are copying the original serial number that is on the front of this document. Make sure you enter the software serial number, not the Support ID number. Make sure you enter a zero and not an O, a 1 and not a lowercase L, where appropriate. Include dashes in the serial number. Dont enter spaces before or after the serial number. Verify that you have typed the serial number correctly. Note: If you are upgrading from Production Suite, the installer looks for the Final Cut Pro HD (version 4.5), Motion 1.0, and DVD Studio Pro 3.0 serial numbers. If you are upgrading from Final Cut Pro, the installer looks for the appropriate serial number. If the installer is unable to locate any of these serial numbers, the installer asks you to enter the serial numbers now. Important: After three incorrect serial number entries, the installer quits. To begin the installation process again, return to step 2. 9 Customize your installation by selecting and deselecting items in the Custom Install window. Many items include a disclosure triangle that, when clicked, reveals additional items you can select or deselect. Any items that are not selected and are dimmed cannot be installed because your system does not meet minimum system requirements. Placing the pointer over these items shows which requirements are not met. Note: You may need to expand the window and drag the edge of the Package Name heading to show the full names of some items.
10 Click the folder icons in the Location column and then select Other from the pop-up menu to choose a custom location for the content. See Installing Content on page 9 for information about installing content and choosing custom locations for items that allow it. 11 After you have configured the Custom Install window, click Install or Upgrade. Important: You may see the Upgrade option even on computers that do not have previous versions of the Final Cut Studio applications installed. This is because the installer has detected at least one file on your system in common with the files it installs, and is considered normal. 12 A message appears listing the discs required to complete the installation. Click Continue Installation. 13 A dialog appears requiring you to authenticate yourself by typing your name and password. Click OK when finished. The installer displays a progress bar to indicate its status, and prompts you to insert specific discs to continue the installation. Note: You will need to insert the Final Cut Studio installation disc again to finish the installation. Warning: The discs you insert while installing Final Cut Studio include their own individual installers, which the Finder displays. Do not click anything in a discs Finder window; instead, only follow the Final Cut Studio installers prompts. Starting an individual discs installer while the Final Cut Studio installer is still running may cause an incomplete Final Cut Studio installation and may require you to start again. After you have finished the installation, you are ready to begin using the Final Cut Studio applications.
Many of the Final Cut Studio applications include additional content, such as templates and Apple Loops, that you can choose to install.
About the Content
Following is a brief description of the content included with each of the Final Cut Studio applications, along with the default installation locations. You can also choose custom locations to place much of this content, such as a second hard disk or a custom folder. Apple Loops for Soundtrack Pro The Apple Loops for Soundtrack Pro disc includes an extensive library of Apple Loops. In addition to many new Apple Loops, this disc includes all of the Apple Loops from earlier versions of Soundtrack. If you want to ensure that the installer installs a complete set of unmodified Apple Loops, you need to delete the existing Apple Loops or choose a custom location to place these new ones. The default location for the Soundtrack Pro content is /Library/Audio/Apple Loops/. Motion Content Motion content is included on the Motion installation disc. There are three types of content: Library content: Includes the necessary Library items such as particle emitters, replicator presets, shapes, gradients, text styles, and so on. Template collections: A set of professionally designed templates that you can use and customize to suit your needs. Tutorial media: The tutorial media is used with the Motion Tutorial PDF document located in the discs Documentation folder and available from the Motion Help menu. The default location for the Motion content is /Users/Shared/.
DVD Studio Pro Content DVD Studio Pro content is included on the DVD Studio Pro installation disc. The content includes iDVD theme elements and templates and transitions. iDVD theme elements: DVD Studio Pro 4 can import projects from iDVD 3 and iDVD 4 as long as your system has the iDVD theme elements installed (in addition to having iDVD installed). Important: Projects from other versions of iDVD, including iDVD 5, cannot be imported into DVD Studio Pro 4. Installing iDVD theme elements replaces existing iDVD theme element files. This does not have any impact on the functionality of iDVD; it only enhances functionality by allowing iDVD projects to open in DVD Studio Pro. Templates and transitions: DVD Studio Pro provides templates and transitions for both SD and HD projects, including all templates and transitions provided with previous DVD Studio Pro releases. You can choose which groups of templates and transitions to install in the Custom Install window. Note: Selecting DVD Studio Pro 3 templates also installs the DVD Studio Pro 2 templates. The default location for the DVD Studio Pro content is /Library/Application Support/ DVD Studio Pro/Apple/. LiveType Media The LiveType Media discs provide extensive new media content, including LiveFonts, templates, objects, and textures. The default location for the LiveType content is /Library/Application Support/LiveType/.
Installing the Content
The Final Cut Studio installer includes a Custom Install window where you can specify the applications and content to install. You can also configure the Custom Install window to install only selected content items later if you chose not to install them with the applications. If you use the Final Cut Studio installer to install selected content items later, the process is the same as is described in Installing Final Cut Studio on page 5, except you are not required to enter your serial number again. Content items that you can place in a custom location have a folder icon in the Location column of the Custom Install window. You can choose the location to place the content by clicking this folder.
Click the disclosure triangle to show additional items.
Click the folder icon, then choose Other from the pop-up menu to choose a custom location to install the content.
