    I took a screencapture of the manual (which has poor quality images) and enhanced it with red arrows, this will give you the idea of what you must do before you can use F9

    Thank you for all these information. In fact, I am still a beginner and cannot provide you all the necessary details about the avi and the settings in Edius. Anyhow, I'll try my best to solve the problem and see what useful things are there in the website.

    Have you correctly set your capture settings?
    You also need to give us your pc specs, you may be using W95 or vista, Mac or anything, so any help would be guessing in the dark.
    dvcapture will be on the web at the canopus site. You need to log in and you should find it. Registering your version of edius will also give you updates.
    Another freee capture software is windv link here

    There are two types of dv.avi, type 1 and type 2, then there are over 800 acknowledged types of .avi files, so saying you capture as avi is not very helpful, you need to say what sort.
    Something like Gspot or avicodec, links on same page, will identify your avi file type.

    before you can press F9 you need to go to input settings and choose DV pal or DV Ntsc

    is your camera Pal?

    All I can say that Edius is not able to capture through FireWire connection, when I press F9 for capture there is no response. If you are able to explain the problem I would highly appreciate it otherwise, please tell me how to get the free software for video capture.

    I am not sure what Nero Vision produces?

    why are you not able to capture via Edius?

    there is also other free capture software in your download area if you don't want to use Edius, it is called DVCapture and its files will work as well

    another software not free is Scenalyzer Live

    I use Edius for capture and it works fine, it even divides files by camera start stop if I wish

    I am not able to capture through Edius itself. Instead, I have used Nero Vision to capture the movie from the camera using FireWire connection and I stored the movie in the computer's hardisk as avi format.

    connect the camera to the Edius computer and then click capture from within Edius

    the resulting dv.avi will work perfect

    avia is just a wrapper, the file is dv, providing you used a firewire cable for capture

    what capture software did you use to transfer from camera to computer?

    Problem with avi format

    I have a MiniDV Sony camera for home use. When I record the movie from the camera through the computer the movie will be stored in avi format. However, Edius ver 4.02 cannot read the avi format can anyone explain the reason?
