Re: photo capture from video clip

Too many software can do this, PowerDVD may be used. or a software bundled with. Look inside the CD bundle, it may have the necessary software for that purpose.

I am trying to upload video from my sony handycam DCR-TRV17 to my computer. I have a 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable and it is plugged into my computer and the camcorder. I am running Windows 7. What is...

For Windows 7, Microsoft changed the game. They now require you to load new software to capture video from an older camcorder. Yes you do need to use the i.Link (Firewire) interface. I have had the best luck using the 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable.
Video capture is in the LIVE Photo Gallery part of Microsoft's suite of software. LIVE essentials

Mod formate compatibility issue

directly capture ur video in pinnacle thru ur usb cable provided , or see if there is any software cd provided with ur camera , select capture video from source in pinnacle and then select ur camera if it appears there , other wise if u r camera has firewire 1394 connection port it is like mini usb port , then u need a pci firewire card for ur pc and a firewire cable to connect ur camera directly to pc and then it will sure appear in the pinnacle list of capturing devices then directly cap the video in whichever format u like say mpeg2 for dvd like videos and then u can edit, this firewire port is normally incl in the new laptop series nowadays

My 2008 MacBook Pro will not recognize PANASONIC PV-DV953 .

A little vague. What do you need help with? Plug the camera in, open the software initialise the capture window. Log the clips in and out points, buy hitting in then out then log (allowing at least 3 secs around time code breaks). Select the clips you want to capture and batch digitise. If you are having difficulty locating the camera, make sure it is in VCR mode or that you have a driver for that type (google the camera type + driver download). If this is not the problem, do you have device control but can't capture....?

Hi, You can only transfer still images (photos) with a USB cable. For video, you need a firewire card and cable. That's the way it works.

Can my camcorder work with imovie and if so how do i get my computer to get download my video?

Open iMovie and set it to capture DV. (Click the camera shaped icon opposed to the siscor scissor shape) When you see a blue screen that says (camera connected) and the image pops on screen of image from tape on camcorder set in play mode, you hit the import button and it begins to capture digital movie using DV compression of whatever you have on tape. You should be able to control your camcorder with the video controllers underneath the project window to make selections for the in and outpunts on the tape you wish to capture. Then switch to edit mode by clicking on the scissor button and import the movies you just captured or use them from the clips menu, etc. renedr movie back to tape, if you wish by clicking back and forth from edit mode (scissors) and capture mode (camera silo) and render to and from tape.
