Question about Canon Cameras

Open Question

I have a DM-MV300E camcprder and have just purchased Pinnacle software to enable to burn onto DV and edit etc. I'm not able to locate the device in the windows device manager - it is telling me that it should show as an IEEE 1394 bus host controller but nothing is registering. Do I need to download a driver from Canon? Thank you.

I have found you a Manual if that is of any help? www.adaptec.com/en-US/support/firewire/FireConnect/AFW-8300/_docs/afw8300_ug_pdf.htm All I can think of is a faulty cable? Also sometime just changing the PCI slot will help?

If your computer is Win ME/2000/XP   you do not need software from a disk
Windows can do it all by itself
Simply plug the camera into the USB port and Windows will put up the scanner camera wizard - follow the prompt

SOURCE: downloading photos from Canon 400D direct to Canons photo editing programmes on new windows Vista computer.

There are two ways to solve this problem. I am assuming you are simply clicking on the pictures and choosing "edit" or double clicking on the pictures and they are opening in "Vista picture editing"
The first way to overcome this is by opening the desired program first (in this case canon's photo editor) and then choose open and find the desired photos.
The other way is to set the file type association in vista so that RAW programs open with the canon program see below for step by step:
1. Click Start
2. Click default programs on the black bar
3. Click Associate a file type or protocol with a program
4. Find the file types you want to open automatically in your canon editing program (RAW .jpg etc)
5. Click once at the top of the page click change program
6. A new window will open, if it does not list the correct program click browse at the bottom of the window and find your editor in it's folder.
7. Select the desired program by double clicking
8. Click OK
9. Click close
10. Test the new file association by double clicking a RAW file or one of the other file types and see if it loads into the correct program.

The final (and this is simply my plug for open source programs) solution would be to try something like GIMP (it is a photo editing suite developed under linux but adapted for windows) you can search for it on google.

If you are having trouble with any of these steps please post a comment and I will try and add some clarification.
Hope this helps

I have just bought Pinnacle 14, it keeps crashing it says GPU Accelerator off. The transition are an exclamation mark (!) or they take about an hour to come in so that you have no idea what the Titles or...


Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit, aka video card) handles the display on the computer. On many modern computers the GPU also handles some extra processing, which takes some load off of your CPU. If you are getting error messages about the GPU, it could be a hardware problem, or it could also be a software problem. You didn't mention how recent your Pinnacle software is, but it may be that your software in not fully compatible w/ Win 7. I recently had to upgrade my Roxio (another video burning/editing software) for the same reason. Now mine works wonderfully.
I would first suggest visiting Pinnacle and seeing if there are any software updates for your software product.
Next I would check to see what your GPU is installed in your computer:
Click start/control panel/system, then select device manager, and click "display adapter" to open up your video card. If you have an ATI/AMD or NVIDIA card, there are software updates that may improve performance of the system.
If you have an Intel card, there still may be updates but they are less frequent, and will probably make less of an impact performance-wise.
Please also mention if any other programs are crashing etc. as it may help to clarify the problem.

How to Edit/Convert Sony HDR-FX1 HDV Files to FCP,Adobe Premiere,Avid Sony's...


How to Edit/Convert Sony HDR-FX1 HDV Files to FCP,Adobe Premiere,Avid
sony-hdr-fx1.jpg
Sony's HDR-FX1 is the first three-CCD HDV camcorder to hit the market. The Sony HDR-FX1 HDV camcorder can record and playback both in high definition and in standard MiniDV formats, so the choice is yours. What's amazing is that with this camera, you can play and record both formats on a MiniDV tape!
With the Sony HDR-FX1, Sony developed a special compression engine. It encodes in MPEG2 at the same bit rate as DV. As a result, you can use the same miniDV tapes you're accustomed to buying to record at stunning high definition. Moreover, when in high definition mode, the camcorder records audio in MPEG1 Audio Layer II, providing excellent sound quality.
Sony HDR-FX1 Handycam Camcorder Supported Format:
Audio system: MPEG1 Audio Layer 2 Stereo;
Dolby Digital Output : MPEG1 Audio Layer 2-Stereo (HDV), PCM (DV)
Video: Digital Video Format: MPEG-2
Video Recording System: Real-Time HD Codec Engine, HDV/DV Recording
Still Image Format: JPEG
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Sony HDR-FX1 Handycam Camcorder:
Advantages:
1.Sharp and vibrant three-chip HD images;
2.Native 16:9 capture;
3. Ability to downconvert video for use with existing editing systems and displays.
Disadvantages:
1. No XLR inputs or independent audio-level controls;
2. No 24P;
3.Somewhat difficult to control and monitor focus manually;
4.Limited HDV editing and distribution options at this time.
Final Cut/Abobe Premiere/Avid/Canopus/Pinnacle/Ulead Support Sony HDV/DV files Editing
Along with the announcement of the HDR-FX1, Apple Computer is announcing support for the HDV spec with their popular video editing program, Final Cut. "Native HDV support in future releases of Final Cut will enable our customers to create high quality HD content with affordable HDV cameras, including Sony's much anticipated HDR-FX1 camcorder," said Rob Schoeben, Apple's Vice President of Applications Marketing.
Adobe has also stated that they will be releasing an HDV plug-in for their popular Premiere editing system later this year. "The Sony HDR-FX1 is a milestone product, bringing HD-quality video at resolutions of up to 1080i at a price that will encourage widespread adoption of HDV across the industry. In keeping with our commitment to lead the HD revolution, Adobe plans to release a HDV Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro later this year," said Steve Saylor, Vice President, Digital Imaging and Video, Adobe Systems, Inc.
Avid, Canopus, Ulead and Pinnacle also announced support for HDV. Editing support has been a big issue for HDV in the past, with third party companies supplying solutions for Final Cut and Adobe Premiere.
Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac Supports Native Sony HDV/DV files Converting
With the release of Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac, no matter what usages you want to deal with Sony HDR-FX1 recorded HDV/DV files, for sharing on your websites, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Motionbox, Myspace, etc, for playing with your iPad, iPhone 4, iPod, Android Phones, Xbox 360, etc, for making forever collection by burning to Blu-ray or DVD, etc, it can help you to convert Sony HDV/DV files to MOV, AVI, WMV, 3GP, MP4, FLV, F4V, etc formats you wanted. Take it as your Sony HDR-FX1 converter, and you have the choice to deinterlace HDV/DV files, merge HDV/DV files into only one.

Pinnacle Studio 11


From the looks of it there's no Vista support yet. Pinnacle Systems needs to come out with somekind of patch soon. I've been looking for an hour as well. Couldn't find anything but people discussing the fact that they need the patch badly. On the Pinnacle site there's a link to software for Dazzle Video Creator 9 but it leads to an error page.

I guess you'll have to watch carefully when an update arrives.
Or try to find something of an automatic update feature in the software, maybe it'll find something.

You can try simpler programs such as Windows Movie Maker but I don't think it suits your needs when you want to edit stuff.

Another solution might be Sony Vegas.
For more information on the Sony Vegas product family, click link below:
[Sony Vegas Product Family at SonyCreativeSoftware.com]

I hope this will help you out. It's really frustrating that you buy software and then you can't use it on Vista.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

How do I transfer the footage I recorded to PC?


The USB cable is only to download still images recorded on the memory card, using the software that came with the camera. To download video, you need to connect to a computer with a Firewire cable, and have video editing software on your computer to communicate with the camera.

Where are the captured videos kept, I am running out of space on my HD. I have edited and saved movies I want off to another disk, but the originals are still on my C drive somewhere


Search your computer for all files with an extension that you use for your video files, whether it be mpg, mov, avi, etc. When you installed Pinnacle studio, you determined where the files would be stored or let it go to pinnacles default setting. Go to my computer right click and do a search for files >25Mb and that should bring up at least some of your files. Then look at the location (folder) where they are stored and you will find all of the others in there as well. Burn, transfer and/or delete what you don't want any longer. You might also try to open pinnacle studios, start a new project and save it, to see where pinnacle stores it. The rest should be there. Good luck and I hope this helps.

Camera not recognized anymore, with my editing software


What exactly do you mean doesnt recognize? Is windows not detecting the camera, or is it just pinnacle?
Solutions:
1: Check your camera, some have options that need to be enabled to be able to be detected by a pc, like a "PC mode".
2: Check your firewire cable. Try replacing it with another one.
3: Is your firewire connecting to your mainboard directly or do you have a seperate firewire card? If its a seperate card, try checking its connection to the mainboard.

I hope this helps,

Video transfer


Hi,
You can stop and start as much as you want. Then you just hit play and record it onto your pc with the software. There is software you can get that will know when you start and stopped and will break your video up into scenes automatically onto the computer.
Hope that helped,
Lee
