Question about Formac Studio DV/TVR (FS 1142-48) Video Capture

1 Answer

Audio probelms Hi I used the formac converter to bring the signal as digital to be able to edit in Imovie the video captured fine, but when I play back the captured video clips I get a terrible audio noise, but this happens only when I use Imovie, if I use final cut pro it works great, is there a problem with Imovie and will it also have the same problem using final cut express? Thanks luis

    I have the same problem. When I download analog video and sound from a s-vhs unit into my imac and imovie 06 it sounds and looks fine as it is recording. The problem comes when I go to play it back on imovie. The sound is there and the video is fine... however, there is a sound resembling a machine gun in the background that drowns out most of the recorded audio. I've tried everthing I know to do. Switching VCR's, switching cables, plugging in directly, trying different vhs sources. Clueless in Fl.

In your DVD software see if there's a place where you can choose the method of synchronizing the audio to video. If there is then choose drop video frames.

Need Driver software

Which OS? If you are on Mac it just works straight away in iMovie, just bring up the import box and it should work, as for windows, I haven't tried it but I'm presuming that the same procedure will work in an editing suite on the import settings the device should be found.

No drivers are provided on the Canopus Website (company now known as "Grass Valley") however there is a compatability release note about windows 7 saying that it is certified to work with it.

I can capture video into FINAL CUT from VHS deck via ADVC-300, but there is no audio. Is this common?

it should not be. Are you getting audio signal levels on the ADVC-300? I think it may be a connection problem. I always get audio from vhs, even through a camera or hdv deck. Never mind a converter box.

Cant capture video

Not having camcorder control is normal, as the ADVC110 doesn't translate DV (AV/C) control to anything else. It just accepts and replies to deck control commands so the capture application doesn't get stuck waiting for a response.

First off, make sure you only have the ADVC110, your VCR, and your computer connected. No other Firewire devices.

Be sure your have the output from your VCR connected to the ADVC's input. Connect your VCR's output to your TV. You should see in iMovie the same image you see on your TV, slightly delayed.

Hollywood Dazzle Problem

One way I got past that (it sounds strange but worked for me). try playing the video from your device while iMovie is closed. Then open iMovie while the video is playing through the Dazzle and then try. iMovie seems to recognize whether its PAL or NTSC as it loads up. hope this helps
