  • Where's my MPEGcapture?

    It does help to have a manual!! I downloaded the 3.61 last night and have a new lease on life in my attempts to edit HD. My Pentium 4 3.2 GHz was struggling to keep up with the camera whereas my wifes laptop breezed through. I use Edius infrequently unlike most of you, and basically just edit travel movies a couple of times a year. Now that I've tried the laptop I'd be happy to edit as I go but I've been told no way, divorce proceedings would be initiated!! We are retired and do travel for months at a time so maybe she has a point.

    Anyway I see in the manual that I should have MPEG capture. Start> programs>Canopus>MPEGcapture. I have the Discapture , Edius, ProCoder And Titler there but no MPEG. Where's it gone? Its there in the laptop and also under the select channel/file button on top of the player in the laptop. I wasn't able to activate the laptop and have been trialing it on the thirty day basis. I was therefore not too happy to uninstall/re-install Edius in case I had similar problems. I'm due for a PC upgrade and my Edius supplier says he will guide me through any activation problems then. Went into program files> Canopus and everythig else is there, MPEG tools etc but no MPEGcapture. What do I do?....... I want to play with my new toy and I've only got a couple of weeks before we head off.

    Maybe you can check the installation CD,you can find a file which named "Mpeg Capture",then install "setup.exe" program;if you can not find the file,you can go to wenside to download.

      If necessary you can download it from the main Canopus web site. Click on support and log in. Then click on product related downloads, and then click on Edius 4 (assuming you've registered your Edius 4). The file to download is named MPEGcapture Utility v4.02. It's 8 or so MB.

          Thanks Syqkaduna, had a look at my installation CD and whilst I couldn't find it under open/explore when I started the installation there it was along with everything else but it was unchecked, the only one that was so I guess I must have thought I would never use it when I first installed. Can't think why. Anyway have captured no problems and converted with HQ avi as per 2-10/2-13 of the manual. Some huge file sizes if you go the HD target, still in the process of trying other output options. All seems a long way round, it will be nice to capture directly when I eventually get my upgrade.

            FYI, in version 4.x, you can capture directly to MPEG-2 TS without having to use MPEGcapture - it's built into EDIUS.

            (note: the built-in MPEG capturing feature does not support DVStorm or any SD-to-MPEG capture - that's why we still offer MPEGcapture as a separate download)
