Then select theLanshare drive and click OK


9. Make the Format of the project 30i NTSC name the project and click OK


10. If you are using a system with a AVID DNA Break Out Box like MOJO or Adrenaline the DNA needs to be turned off so that it reads 1394 If you are using a system w/o a DNA it should already read 1394 so don’t need to change this setting


11. Select a new bin and open the capture tool >Tools > Capture


12. If this still doesn’t recognize a deck then CLOSE the Capture Tool and go back to the ProJect Bin and double click on Deck Configuration
13. Next click on Add Channel Channel Type Will be Firewire And the Port will be OHCI then click OK
