Choppy Importing from Camera


cantgetittoworkright

Question

Hi,

 

I have a Sony TRV280. I am attempting to import into EMC9. I used a USB cable to import into the computer and the result is a video file that replays choppy.

 

There are three outputs on the side for it. Small USB is one, single jack leading to three rca (white, yellow, red), and something else I don't recognize (assuming something called firewire). The USB is always choppy. The RCA (attempting first try at the moment) seems to be importing clearly.

 

Why would RCA be better (if it is) than USB? Is the firewire that much better than the other two? Is it worth getting?

 

 

Also, the dvds I create just run on the dvd player with my tv. There is no menu access, even though I created menus and chapters. Neither are accessible when the disk is popped into the dvd player. What am I missing on this? The dvd I made wouldn't even work on my computer (yes, it has a dvd player).

Firewire is the only way to go, if your components have the ability to be connected that way.

OK, just finished importing from my camera using the connection that has the three rca type lugs on one end and it is choppy as well.

 

When Importing in appears to be smooth capture while watching the capture screen, but when viewing the finished capture, the video is not smooth flowing at all. So far, 2 cables same result.

 

I have a 2.2 ghz processor, 2 gb of ram (system managed)

 

here's my dx diag

 

Is it my system or some other reason?

How did you plug the RCA connections to the computer? That's still not Firewire, so it's still going to be lower quality most likely.

I bought an ADS videoexpress adapter. Of course it takes it into the computer via usb, so....probably the same resulty should have been expected.

Which model? you should be able to capture with that device. If it is the one I see on their site, you should capture as an AVI file. Your computer should be OK. Make sure that you are not doing anything else during capture and that your anti-virus is turned off. Defrag your hard drive.

 

Check to see if there is an updated driver for that device. Make sure you have updated the driver for your video card and that it is set to best performance rather than appearance.
