<strong>A realtime DV card ? Are you using it for offline editing with the DV codec or is DV good enough for broadcast in your area ?
The realtime cards give you a preview to an external monitor (NTSC or PAL). FCP only allows realtime previews to the desktop. Both options - the RtMac and the real-time effects in FCP - need to be rendered before going out to tape.
The RtMac also gives you composite in, but the quality of the video is very ordinary.
If you're talking about doing real-time uncompressed video, you will need to look at the <a href="http://www.pinnaclesys.com
