Final Cut Pro Logging

Although the majority of the logging capabilities of Final Cut Pro are located in the Log and Capture window, you can always add more information via the browser window after you have captured the desired material. With this being said and with all of the proper hardware connections having been made, here are some of the most popular ways to log and capture material within Final Cut Pro.

Batch Capturing allows you to review the material that you have shot via a camcorder or VTR and set in and out points for multiple scenes that you wish to capture within the log and capture window. You can name those scenes, then go back and capture all of those scenes one after the other hands free by selecting the Batch button. This method is useful if capturing the entire tape is not an option and if you need multiple select scenes. You could run into problems with a batch capture if the tape you are ingesting has many timecode breaks.

Another popular Log and Capture method is logging a clip, then immediately capturing that single clip. You would capture each clip in this manner. This technique can take a while and would be useful when you are aware that there are many timecode breaks within the tape you want to ingest.

With drive space permitting, you could also capture an entire tape as one huge clip, then use markers to break it up into individuals scenes after capture. If you have recorded the footage toggling the record but off and on between takes, you could also use the DV Start/Stop Detect function to break it into individual scenes.
