  • HDV capturing problem

    I use Canon XH A1 trying to capture HDV to Canopus HQ. The capture works fine but the clips have frequent horisontal flaws. The camera monitor picture looks flawless. I have tried three disks with the same result. Stormtest reports 54 and 59 MB/s for the disks.

    There must be a bottle neck somewhere but where. IExplorer and mail are closed but Internet is still connected with active Panda firewall and virus protection.

    System is shown below.

    Any ideas?

    Storm will not capture HDV. I'm assuming you're using OCHI.

    Your CPU seems ok, but it looks like you're capturing to a single drive. RAID should be closer double your data rates.

    On re-capture do the problems happen on the same place on the tape? Dirty heads with HDV are very different than DV.

      Look at the HDV Capture Issues thread, you may find your answer.

        Thank you for response.
        When I connect the camera to my Full HD LCD 46" TV the video is just excellent with no flaws.

        Thank you for pointing me to that thread which seems to help me a bit.

        There is talk about a mpeg capture utility that I have not been able to find but will look around a bit.

            Thank you guys!

            I have an old Premiere Pro 1.5 installed and had no problems capturing from that with an excellent quality. Procoder took care of transcoding to Canopus HQ so now it all works. Premiere refers to the camera for monitoring. I guess my PC does not have enough power for Edius Pro capture and Edius monitor display. Will probably have to buy a cheap camcorder that can handle tape operations instead of the more expensive camera.

              Having a DVStorm2 card, I too had problems capturing HDV (or HQ) with Edius 4.24. Using the Canopus standalone Mpeg Capture Utility with Edius not running, captured without any problems.

              I still wanted Edius4 running while I captured HDV; making a long story short, my fix was to get a PCI-E IEEE-1394 which captured HDV to HQ in RT perfectly with Edius running.

              I don't think your capture issues are CPU related with HDV capture. I think it's a resource problem with Edius4 and DVStorm2 drivers in a HDV project profile causing capture problems with the PCI 1394 port, IMO.

                Angelo,
                Yes, I downloaded the MPEG2 Capture utility and it works fine. I will proabably store my edited projects on external disks but tried to store it on the tape in the XH A1 after running it through Speedencoder to get HDV format. Loaded the HDV converted movie to the timeline of Edius but could not get Print to Tape to work. I could not get any response from the A1 but capturing works.
                All this is HD business is very new to me so guess will have to do some reading to learn.

                  In addition to my previous post:

                  I just discovered the Canopus utility MPEG TSWriter. It works well when I want to store edited material onto tape in my camera or VCR.

                  Future looks bright again!

                      Hallo,
                      I had the same problem with my storm2.
                      After disabling the storm the capture works fine.
