Evd3 Plus Capture Hi8 Sees No Video, Intermittant Audio

Question

I got it to work once. When it wouldn't work with the same tape., I uninstalled and reinstalled several times. same problem when I try to capture, "no video detected" and I can hear the audio come on then off in several second intervals.

I have a Sony HI8 EV-c100 tape deck connected to a Win10/64 computer.

You said "Sony HI8 EV-c100 tape deck " How do you have it connected? What plugs/cords are you using? Typically you need a IEEE firewire connection. USB typically is for images only.

 

You said you got it to work once -- for how long?

Does it work when hooked up to your TV. You may have to use a Composite cable (Yellow (video) Red&White (audio) for this test, as most TV's don't have S-Video jacks.

Well, it looks like in all my connects and re connects to computer and TV I broke my S-vid cable. I first tried disconnecting the S plug and using the component vid connector. It worked. I then Tried a new s-video cable, It worked. So it looks like i'm ready to go. I'll go with the S-vid set-up because I assume that the quality is better...,correct?. Also the VTD3 captures at mpeg2 is that going to give me all the quality of the Hi8 video?

Thanks for all your help And your patience with me. tks! joe

Who would have thought???

 

FYI the Yellow RCA cable is Composite not component. S-Video is a little bit better than Composite. Just make sure you set Capture Quality to max and the same for output. It is automatic if you create a DVD Movie. If you go the Computer route, it is up to you to set quality.

 

Note that none of us Record DVD. We all capture to file then use the edit & save to finish. Just too much can go wrong with Record DVD...

 

If you are authoring a DVD Movie, then make sure you don't ever use the Fit to Disc. Span is OK for 2 discs but KEEP to the rule that a 4.7 GB disc only holds 1 hour of HQ DVD Movie!

 

The capture will be as good as the source but only up to DVD quality - 720 X 480 @ 9 mbps.

 

Don't start out by doing batch projects. Do a test project or two then if happy, go to a real final production project. That way you didn't waste time & effort only to be back here asking questions ;)
