    As Don said change your settings to 1440 x 1080 (assuming you are using NTSC).

    HELP!

    ok now that I've installed Edius 8 I REALLY can't get Edius to recognize the camera
    always set output to "No Select"

    unless you plan to print to the camera, which I doubt

    1. you must know if the camera recorded in NTSC or PAL, DV or HDV

    2. once you know the above by viewing playback status in camera viewfinder or settings, make a device preset that matches the recorded tape

    3. be sure the tape is in the camera and in pause or play when you click capture, sometimes it takes 2-3 sec before vision appears

    4. if vision remains gray, it means the device preset does not match the recorded tape or wrong frame rate

    5. also, make sure that if tape is recorded in HDV, the camera output is set to HDV and not to auto
    if the tape is recorded in DV, make sure camera out is set to DV and not to Auto

    HQ standard is ok and if you have plenty disk space, use HQ Fine

    also, be sure the legacy firewire driver is present

    Canon/Sony HDV is typically 1440x1080i with non-square pixels and requires a corresponding preset.
    Your screen shots show different resolution.

    How was the video shot?

    The preset i use for HDV from my Canon camcorders is attached.

    Ok I tried the legacy drivers and it did not fix the issue, it actually made it worse
    Prior, edius was opening a greyed out box but now it's not even doing that

    Thanks for the great info Anton

    With Edius 8 Grass Valley HQ settings for the Preset Wizard,
    Online Standard is selected
    Is fine a higher quality?

    Thanks for your help.

    I captured my last tape fine, but this time
    I plug the camera in.. - windows recognizes it

    I select capture device as Sony
    then I can't actually capture.. it's greyed out.. No idea what setting is messed up this time?

    Yes Edius does not like auto setting in the camcorder settings, you need to set it to be the same format as the tape, DV or HDV.

    To reduce camcorder wear I use a GV-HD700/1 portable DV/HDV player with LCD screen via Firewire. To set it up go to menu > In/out record menu (left arrow over right arrow symbol) item 1 HDV/DV select >enter > HDV/DV select highlighted > enter choose DV or HDV press enter menu to exit.

    It does say that you may need to cycle the power on/off with the firewire connected, and when you switch it back on there should be a reassuring "blum blomp" sound from windows if all is well similar to plugging a USB stick in.

    On system 4 my Asus MB does not have Firewire on board. So I have solved that with a Sonnet Tango3 PCIe card which has two firewire 800 connectors, two USB3 on the rear and a dual USB 3 internal socket. Standard Firewire 800 to 400 cable and the deck works just fine with that.

    Looking it up in device manager it is using an LSI 1394 OHCI compliant chip with Ms driver 6.1.7601.17514 in Windows\system32\DRIVERS\1394ohci.sys

    Don't know about the Sony, but with my Canons and Win 7

    Use the legacy IEEE1394 diver as suggested above.
    Set the Edius capture device device according to the tape type as Anton stated;
    - Generic OHCI for SD tape
    - generic HDV for HDV tape
    And you may need to set the camcorder firewire (iLink) output to the tape type (not auto), and you may need to do this before you connect the firewire cable to the camcorder.

    yes, for HDV capture you must choose generic HDV

    also, in the device preset, I always choose "No Select" for output

    Thanks for the link. I don't think I've ever done that before though.

    I just realized that the issue may be the "device preset" had not been set up,
    but now I'm trying to set it up correctly, and that's another story!

    I tried
    Generic OHCI with 1440x1080 50i set
    with output
    the same, but that won't bring the camera on screen.. so I'll try different settings


    Sony HDR fx1 camera DV tape pal

    I just changed the input setting to Generic HDV and that worked. It's capturing.

    Where abouts are these settings to change them please?
    Edius is not recognizing my camera. I've looked in the manual. This problem has arisen after a format/reinstall of edius.

    Sounds like you have not changed the firewire driver to legacy, look here
