What Is Best Way To Capture Using

Question

I have been absent from the boards a long time and spent quite a bit of time searching for the best way to capture from Hauppauge WinTV 885 Video Capture using S-Video? The capture appears to be wide-screen however it is set at 720x480 mpeg-2 8 Mbps.

 

Reading the different posts it appears that S-Video only supports SD so even though my input source is HD wide-screen 16x9 and it appears to display as wide-screen when played on the PC, when I bring the captured video into VideoWave and then the project into MyDvd the resulting output not only has black bars above and below the video but now has black bars on both sides of the video.

 

Any clue as to what I need to do to eliminate the left/right borders or whether I need to capture using a different technique would be appreciated.

 

TIA,

 

Ken Roy

 

System Specs are

HP Pavillion m9425t with Quad Processor Q8200

6GM memory with 2 500GB drives

Hauppauge WinTV card

nVidia Geforce 9500 GS

running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit

In VideoWave, prior to bringing in the video, did you click on File/New Production/16:9?

What is the source? A Hidef camcorder? Most camcorders will not output hidef through analog outputs. My Canon HV20 has RGB component output which I think can be set to hidef, but the s-video/composite (yellow RCA) is only standard definition.

 

As for the black bars, again my camcorder will add those when output as SD 16:9 to 4:3 TV so you may have several things going on.

Sorry, we left to go to Austin the next morning and did not have a chance to get back to this since then. The original source can be the capture from the Haupaugge TV or from the DVD drive on the PC. Since the original capture appeared to be in wide-screen, I had set the option for non-16:9 sources to "Show entire Source" rather than leaving it at "Fill Screen"

 

Fill screen appears to work when editing in VideoWave. I guess the wide-screen is not being set in the capture.
