  • Turning soung off...

    I'm using Edius 3. I'm capturing a lot of hours of material on DV. And my quewstion is: Can I turn the sound off while the Edius is capturing? I can't listen to music or talk on Skype. THX for answers.

    Unfortunately no, it's not possible.

      Depends on how you capture !

      If you use a dedicated video capture card to capture and you link the Audio output to the on-board mobo sound card, you will be able to mute the audio input (through windows control panel / audio settings) and still Skype all you want.

      If using a standard Firewire input on a Desktop or Laptop I have no solution for you.

        Fortunately, the next version of EDIUS will run on Windows Vista, which lets you mute individual applications.

          I'm still using XP and I have spent about 40 minutes looking for a mute for capture. Please add this feature!! It can't be that hard to do, and it's ***really helpful*** when doing bulk capture of DV and HDV tapes via firewire.

              But wouldn't that turn all your applications down?

                Hmmm. Skype is extremely CPU and I/O intensive. Capture is I/O intensive. And you want to talk on Skype while you capture? I think that exposes you unnecessarily to capture problems. Run Skype on a different system, or not while you attempt capture would be my recommendation.

                  not at all, it only turns off the sound from video, this has nothing to do with PC sounds

                  I have a feeling that the OP does not have an external amp and is routing the output of NX to the input of his sound card

                    Anton, I don't think KicekFC has either an amp or an NX card. He certainly hasn't mentioned them.

                      you are correct, I read the signature of soundfreak by mistake, it was in orange and somehow hit me in the face to read it

                        To Canopus developers in Japan: Responding to some of the recent posts, I don't know about the OP, but I am using firewire capture, which means I get the audio at full blast out of my PC speakers. That means I cannot listen to music, do youtube or hulu, or do anything with audio while I am capturing. Since I capture a lot of video, I find this to be pretty annoying. Sure I could get a second system, but that seems like an extreme workaround, when a mute button on the capture function would do the trick. Does anyone know of a practical workaround in Windows XP? I used Vista briefly but it was a dog.

                        Addressing the other point about doing two things at once, I haven't had any problems with dropped frames or bad captures. Haven't used Skype, but again firewire capture means you can't do anything else that involves listening to audio.

                          Seeing that it is always risky multi-tasking whilst capturing with any NLE I'd go out and buy a stand alone CD player, boom box or MP3.
                          I hate sitting around while I capture 60 minute tapes and if I'm capturing shorter sequences it needs my full attention anyway.
                          But good luck if you can convince Japan to give you a mute button.
