Creator 2010 or Easy Media Creator 10? What operating system? Which DV camcorder and how are you getting the video from the camcorder to your computer> How are you playing it back and what application are you using to burn the DVD. How much experience do you have with the program?

roxio creator 2010 pro. windows XP. The camcorder I use is a sony dcr trv250. I do know that older versions of roxio wouldn't reconize the camcorder. Creator pro does and will download the video. It's just when I play it back using either windows media netzero and so forth it plays back fast. I burned it to dvd using roxio and it looks good on tv when I play it nut it's in fast motion

Do you have audio? This program probably thinks that the camcorder is a webcam since you are using the USB jack. I don't know if that is what is causing the fast motion or not.

 

You must use the FireWire (IEEE) connection to capture the video to your computer.

The dcr trv250 is a Sony Digital 8mm camcorder. When you use the USB, you are only capturing at 320x240. As Steve points out to get the full 720x480, you need to purchase a firewire cable that works with your hardware.

 

First, check to see if your computer has 1394 port and what type (4 pin or 6Pin). The camcorder has a 4 pin and it is labeled as iLink. I have a TRV740 and theiKink is beside the USB. You will need a cable that is 4 pin to 4pin or 4 pin to 6 pin depending on your machine.

 

By using firewire, you get the highest quality possible from your camcorder.

I checked and have IEEE 1394 bus host controllers

Texas instruments OHCI compliant IEEE 1394 host controller. So now I have to get behind my computer to see if it's a 4 pin or 6 pin? My dcr trv250 isn't labeled Ilink. it has from right to left

USB slot, DV slot, A/V out, Then an S video out

Yes, correct - it is the DV OUT. If you look beside it , you will see a small 'i' which is Sony's logo for iLink. Once you start capturing via this port, I think you will be surprised at how much better the quality will be.

Okay I purchased the firewire and everything appears to work good. Wish I had known this a lot earlier :) thanks so much.

 

One more question to help save me from trial and error. When I go to capture roxio give me two options for download.

 

AVI DV format and MEPG 2. Which one should I use for best quality and less space or is there another better format I should use?

 

You guys have been great and I really appreciate all the help.

Well you can't have both. LOL

AVI will give you best quality and much faster editing, but uses 13GB per hour. When you create the MyDVD project , the AVI will then be converted to MPEG 2 for final burning to disc. This way the video is only converted and compressed once giving you the best quality.

 

MPEG is more compressed at about 4.3GB per hour. Use this only if you aren't going to do much editing. Smart render only re-renders the parts that were edited, but if you do a lot of transitions, overlays, text, etc., the program may want to re-render the entire project. Since MPEG is already compressed, re-render can cause the image quality to suffer. This is a bit over simplified because there are a lot factors to consider.
