    No audio when capturing straight from camera.
    Hi. I'm capturing from a Sony PD 150 using FInal Cut Pro HD 4.5. When it digitizes the video we can hear the audio perfectly but when its just streaming straight from the camera live we cannot hear didly squat! We can see the audio levels in Final Cut but still cant hear anything until the audio is completely digitized to the hard drive. Could it be a preference file thing? Thanks

    Sounds like its a camera thing actually. Put headphones in to the camera or try and turn the volume up on the camera and see if that does anything?

    You can't listen to the audio as FCP is capturing it in earlier versions. Monitor it directly from the camera or deck. In FCP6 you can check an audio preview switch in Log and Capture that will let you heat what's being captured.

    Correct. During capture you can only hear audio when patched into the source deck, not through your computer.
