    1) shoot some HDV footage
    2) make sure your camera is set to "ilink down convert" OFF
    3) connect the camera using firwire and OHCI to your computer
    4) open edius, create a HDV project 1440x1080i
    5) Go to capture, generic HDV and chose Canopus HQ 1440x1080i
    6) Press F5
    7) tell edius where you want the footage to go
    8) watch it capture ;)
    When I go out, I wear my EDIUS T-Shirt.

        You can use MPEG Capture or free thirdparty soft HDVsplit.

          HDV capture Edius 4.6 from Sony Z1

          Newcomer on Edius 4.6 and Sony Z1.
          Try to capture HDV, with Firewire directly from Sony Z1 to Edius 4.6.
          Settings Camera: HDV, VCR HDV/DV: HDV, Ilink conv: OFF, Down Convert: Squeeze, A/V to DV: Out.
          Settings Edius Capture: HDV 1440 x 1080i, Capture: Generic HDV, Canopus HQ 1440 x 1080i.
          Press F5, Nothing happens! No image on the screen. Does not capture!
          What do I do wrong?
          Thanks
          Martin

            Does your computer make a "do-ding" USB noise when you turn your camera off,
            and then back on again?

            Like someone said earlier, make sure you have actually recorded HDV footage too....

              Edius 4.6 doesn't capture HDV

              Sure it says Ding dong. But no pictures on the screen. I did shoot HDV footage, so that cannot be the problem. It captures DV from the same cam without any problems, but not HDV although the guides below are followed exactly.

                Excuse me, mattmatt, but - why USB? Shouldn't that interface be Firewire? I don't know of any video camera from Sony that interfaces through USB.

                Martin, can you play the HDV tape on your camera and see if there is any video appearing on the LCD screen? If everything appears to be fine, try changing your Firewire cable (it could be faulty).

                  Thanks Matt and Tingsern, but it cannot be the firewire cable, because it's the same cable working fine with capturing dV, HDV Footage is on the cam's LCD screen, and turning camera on or off produces ding dong.

                    Be sure your camera is NOT in "Auto" VCR mode.

                    Go into the camera/deck menu and lock in HDV I/O.

                    Edius demands to see a HDV VCR during capture, not chose for you.

                      The cam is not in "Auto VCR", but in HDV.

                        Can you try to capture using another HDV camera (borrow) and see whether it pose any problem? I use a Sony GV-HD700 HDV tape deck to capture HDV from tape via EDIUS Firewire - it works.

                          Just a note: imho Edius Pro 4.x has one of the best help manuals. Just press F1 and you'll find everything you need without having to deal with a paper manual.

                            HDV capture on Edius 4.6

                            Thanks Rusty too.
                            Camera is not on AutoVCR but on HDV.
                            Is it not possible, the first time camera outputted HDV signal the computer did not recognize the device? (He did recognize the camera putting out DV).

                              What is your OS? XP must be at least sp2 for HDV.
                              Have you tried capturing with MpegCapture?
