Have you tried capturing to an internal hard drive?
That won't affect crossfades.

It's all been vhs which has been played from a svhs player - through an analogue to digital convertor, then through firewire. Some of the footage was also transferred to digital 8, then through (as dropped frame were happening sometimes during direct capture). The jerky fades happen even when the 2 clips involved are captured the same way.
Try changing the project's field order. If that's the problem, I don't think simply changing it will solve all
your problems, in fact I think they'll just move, but let us know if it affects the jerky crossfades and we'll take it from there...
