Final Cut Pro supports streaming DV capture through FireWire. Or capture video from tape using third-party video cards and software. Let the capture run in the background at your workstation or use a dedicated capture station.
Remember if there are features you want to see - Multicam, Tape timecode support, external mointoring, 3rd party capture card support (I am currently using a Blackmagic card on one machine and a Matrox Mini with max on another) I really want support for my cards. You can submit feedback by choosing Final Cut Pro in the menu bar and then selecting provide feedback.
It seems that the exposure adjustments in the colorbox aren't behaving as you'd expect.
When I have the videoscopes active and drag the Global exposure slider down I can drag the blacklevel far below zero percent. The black level plummets to about minus 15 percent before it clips into black. Weird.
