Studio Monthly Tutorial By Daniel and Donald Berube This is a huge timesaver if you want to bring FireStore HDV into your Final Cut Studio editing workflow because the entire process of converting from.m2t to QuickTime.mov has been eliminated. Step 1: Set up your camcorder to output HDV over Firewire Power on your HDV camcorder. Verify that the camcorder is outputting HDV over the camcorder’s 1394 FireWire interface. In this example, we’re using a Canon XL H1. Whenever it’s outputting HDV over FireWire, the camcorder activates a blue LED indicator next to the 1394 FireWire port.
