  • captured vhs footage problems

    Recently upgraded to EPro4.5. In capturing footage from vhs tapes using Edius capture, my captured footage is bad. The actual vhs footage is not messing up…it’s the captured footage that is bad. As it’s being captured I can see how it’s all flipping, etc..totally unusable.

    VCR is routed to the ADVC converter via RCA; Converter routed to computer via firewire…same way I always capture when I have to use the converter. My pc does have an integrated video card, not the best I know, but I've never encountered this issue before (in E3.6)

    I would appreciate feedback from gurus for Edius setting adjustments, etc, that may be a fix, or any other magic trick you know of.

    Thanks so much.

    Capturing VHS to Computer Problem

    Yes, I had the same problem with Edius and Adobe. What I landed up doing was transferring it to DVCam Tape and then was able to capture it into the computer.

    In the past I was able to go direct to computer. Don't know if it was because the Super VHS tape had post production dubbed (overlayed) music.

          No, it does not. ADVC 110 is the basic model..no frills. And a Time Base Corrector is pricey I believe.

          Thanks for the suggestion.

              captured vhs footage problems

              Bill, I'm capturing thru Edius OHCI..isn't that what you mean.
              I may try Ted's suggestion to capture to DV CAM, then capture from that to the computer.
              Anyone have any recommended/preferred settings in the OHCI set-up for this type of capture in E4.5?. I'm NTSC.

              Thanks.

                DVCapture is a little app from Canopus(Grass Valley) outside of Edius that can capture video, up to 3 streams.

                Download it for free at canopus.com,
                just have to be logged in there to download it.
