Video Capture Truncates Movie


lztz3v

Question

Trying to use capture for two movies on a DVD created by EMC7 from TV recording. The DVD has two movies each just under 1 hour long. EMC7 capture has no problem with these and copies each in about 5 minutes. But with EMC9 the capture takes about 20 minutes per movie. The progress bar moves steadily across to 100% then the box says completed. But only about the first third of the movie has been captured. Happening on different DVDs and stopping at the same place on each movie. Again EMC7 has no problem with the same DVD on the same PC. Any ideas? System in Windows XP at current levels.

Do you mean FROM a DVD, because I don't understand what you are doing. If you want to do something with the EMC 9 software, there is no need to capture from a DVD. If you want to do some editing, you just copy the contents of the DVD to your hard drive, open up Videowave, browse to the .vob files, and bring them into VideoWave for edting. Piece of cake.

I'm doing what I have for some time now, namely recording TV programs via a DVD recorder and then using EMC capture to bring them to the hard drive. From there I can build complilations on to permanent DVDs with Videowave. With EMC7 the entire movie is captured into an MPEG file. I've looked at the DVD and it appears to have 5 or 6 VOB files for the 2 movies on the DVD. Looks very much to me as though EMC9 is capturing only the first VOB file and missing the remainder of the program. Furthermore it's taking 20 minutes to capture this part compared with 5 minutes for EMC7 to read the whole movie. Whilst it is running CPU time is only 1-2%.
