  • Capturing HD from Sony FX1

    Hello,

    This is what I have. Dual Core, Edius 4.03, Mpeg Capture 4.02, Edius NX w/expansion kit and a Bay. I can either capture using the bay or a generic OHCI.

    I would like to capture the clips from my FX1 as either .m2t or Canopus HQ.

    I've tried using Mpeg Capture 4.02 but it seems like I could only capture it as m2v or m2p. I can't find anything regarding capturing m2t or HQ in version 4.02. I remember there was a tab to capture m2t and HQ on the old version of Mpeg Capture. I don't see that anymore on version 4.02. Am I missing something.

    How are you guys capturing .m2t or HQ?

    Also, Project Settings? Here's what I have under "Output Device" NHX=E1 HD 60hz, "Output Format" Full HD 1080/59.94i, and "Rendering Format" Canopus HQ AVI.

    Are these settings correct?


    TIA,
    JR

    output format should be HDCAM and not Full HD

    remember, Full HD is 1920x1080 but HDV and HDCAM are 1440x1080

    to capture HQ, choose generic HDV input from capture menu (you may need two xeon processors to keep up with HQ conversion on the fly)

    I am note sure about the latest version of MpegCapture, maybe someone else can test

      it appears things have changed as far as MpegCapture goes

      go to player preview window menu and click Capture, then click input settings, then select Generic HDV, and there you can choose Mpeg TS Pal or NTSC

        I am still checking into MpegCapture, it should work, here is what it says in download area:

        MPEGcapture Utility v4.02
        (Windows XP)
        MPEGcapture allows you to capture directly to MPEG from DV and analog sources, via your Canopus hardware board. This software also supports HDV MPEG-2 TS and HDV-to-Canopus HQ capture.

          unfortunately, there is no manual for MpegCapture anywhere on Canopus site, sorry, can't help without a manual

            You should be able to capture to canopus hq with your dual core cpu. Can you specify your cpu?
            Also if you start mpeg capture and click the option button you can choose to capture to m2t file or canopus hq file. Run a test for 1 hour to see if your computer can keep up capturing directly to canopus hq. IF it cant you need to upgrade your computer or capture to m2t and convert with procoder express to canopus hq. Canopus hq will give you more realtime in edius so i advice you to use that.

              the options of the latest MpegCapture utility only allow mpeg1 and mpeg2 capture, nothing else

              what version do you have?

                Anton,

                Okay, so I'm not going crazy. I have the the current version, v4.02 of Mpeg Capture. And as you said, it only captures MPEG 1 and MPEG 2. I've read the same thing in the download area but couldn't find the option for HQ or m2t in Mpeg Capture once I've installed it.

                So, is everyone that uses Mpeg Capture using the older version?

                Can anyone using v4.02 post if they have the HQ or m2t as an option?

                I guess, I'll look for an old version of Mpeg Capture.

                Thanks,
                JR

                  For Canopus HQ I just capture in Edius. I have a desktop with 2.66 Ghz Core 2 Duo processor and a laptop with 2.33 Core 2 Duo, and they can both manage fine. Although the laptop occassionally produces the "hard drive too slow" error, which actually means the processor can't keep up.

                  But the desktop almost always manages, no problem.

                  I far prefer editing Canopus HQ over m2t.

                    Richard,

                    How are you capturing through Edius? Are you using Mpeg Capture.? If so, what version are you using?

                    I have no problem capturing. Is just that, since I've installed MC v4.02 I'm not able to capture both HQ or m2t. Since I couldn't find that option in v4.02.

                          I’ve been capturing Canopus HQ in Edius since version 3 point something. I’m now on 4.24. In Edius click on capture (towards top left), then Generic HDV input. I also have an FX1, and if it’s connected to the computer via regular firewire before I run Edius then when I reach this point (clicking on Generic HDV input) the capture window becomes active (left window in double window setup) and all the control icons under it.

                          I normally capture a whole tape at a time, so then I just click on the Capture icon (red with little picture of a tape on it) and away we go.

                          But you have to have the Project Settings in Edius set to Generic OHCI HD 50Hz/HDCAM/HDV 1080/50i with rendering format Canopus HQ AVI first. That's for PAL.

                          I’ve never tried capturing to m2t from within Edius.

                              Thanks guys for the replies. I've actually figured it out. I haven't actually captured anything from my FX1 since Edius v3 and I was using the old mpeg capture utility. Also, I had to change something on my FX1 something to do with Ilink. I don't know how that happen. Anyway, all is well.
