Cueing the Videotape

When you use the Print to Video command, or when you output directly from the
Timeline, make sure you cue the videotape to where you want to start recording.

To cue the tape:


Use the camcorder or deck controls to cue the videotape to the point where you want
to start recording.


If you’re outputting to a tape that has previously recorded material on it, make sure
that the write-protection tab is in the write, or unlocked, position.

Note: If you’re using a consumer mini-DV device and you fast-forward past prerecorded
material (so there’s some blank tape between it and what you’ll output), the
DV timecode resets to 00:00:00:00.
