Different Ways to Capture Footage
Final Cut Pro gives you several options for capturing your footage to disk:
Â Capture multiple clips at once (batch capture): Once you’ve logged your clips or
imported a batch list, you can capture multiple clips in the Browser at once using the
Capture Batch button in the Log and Capture window. For more information, see the
next section, “
Batch Capturing Clips
Â Capture one clip at a time as you log in the Log and Capture window: You usually do
this to precisely control the capture process and clip settings for each clip. See
Capturing Clips as You Log (Capture Clip)
” on page 279.
Â Capture an entire tape, or portions of a tape, in one pass: Afterwards, you can break the
clip into smaller subclips and add logging information in the Browser. For more
information, see “
Capturing Entire Tapes (Capture Now)
” on page 280.
