    After all this I found a Canopus Utility called Canopus DV File Converter that would have converted my files OK without having to recapture. Details from the readme file follows. Apparently everyone, including me who already had it on my PC, forgot about this little application. I wonder if it is still available to download from the Canopus utilities section?

    I've been capturing MSDV footage via Scenalyzer for over a year now. Files work everywhere. Edius, Premiere Pro, After Effects, FCP, you name it.

    The days of re-rendering DV footage are gone...I just use Canopus HQ as the renderer in Edius, so I can retain a higher color bandwidth when I re-render DV footage in Edius.

    See, even the Jollymon got confused...
    AVI2, aka DirectShow AVI, flagged as Microsoft DV codec.

    If you're working with old Canopus ___Edit apps, then AVI1, aka VfW AVI, flagged as Canopus DV codec.

    Type 1 DV AVI for most things, Type 2 DV AVI if you need VfW compatibility, which most shouldn't need unless you're using VirtualDub or something.

    Careful no to confuse Type 1 and Type 2 DV AVI with AVI1 and AVI2 as they're opposite (Type 1 DV AVIs are AVI2 files...)

    Yeah, these days the only time you should be capturing/outputing as Canopus DV is if you're taking the output to an Ez/Raptor/Rex/Storm Edit system. Other than that, leave it as Microsoft DV.

    Just make sure the capture is set to the MS Codec... that should be universal :)

    Actually the customer will be using the hard drive as the source not the tapes. I have just started recapturing them, now a little wiser.

    If you set DV Capture to capture as MS format files you should not have any compatibility problems.

    Well if the customer takes the tapes there should be no problem because all nle's can capture dv.

    Capture using MS DV or you'll be asking for trouble! Canopus codec is for Canopus hardware.

    Type of file with DV Capture

    I am using DV Capture to transfer about 17 tapes to a hard drive. The customer is going to take thoses tapes away and edit them themselves with a I-dont-know-what editing program. Are those tapes universaly recognisable or do I need a Canopus codec with them, and if so how is this used?
