Video Capture


slamers

Question

I have a sony digital camcorder that I have successfully imported from using previous revisions of EMC.

 

I have just upgraded to EMC9 and now attempted to do a capture. Everything seemed to be setup correctly.

 

I set it up to do a manual capture (not the smart scan). I tried to capture two ways - Capture entire tape, Capture now.

 

After about 30-90 seconds and a few scenes scanned the capture just stopped. It then said it was ready to scan again.

 

Why didn't it scan the entire tape? I know there is content.

Are you connected with Firewire (Sony calls it iLink)?

Can you capture using Windows Movie Maker? Download a small free utility called WinDV to capture (google for it).

1. I am using Firewire

 

2. I believe my device is CCD_TR something. I don't see it in the list, but it worked in previous versions of EMC. It is able to start the device and capture a few scenes. This is rediculous that a previous camera would not be supported!

 

3. Why in the world would I need to use another program to capture the video - that's the whole darn reason I have this product. Also - there are between 50 and 100 scenes for each video I am capturing - how would those come through?

I am assuming your camera records to tape.

What is the model number of your camera, CCD_TR does not tell us much, it is just the type of camera.

 

 

 

Have you tried to capture with WMM? That could tell you if there is something wrong with the video yoou are capturing. I never use EMC to capture, I use it mainly for editing captured video. WinDV is my capture utility since it captures each scene to individual files based on the timecode on the tape. EMC cannot do that. Editing small videos is much easier then trying to edit long videos.

 

EMC does seem to have problems capturing if you have gaps on the tape where there is nothing recorded.
