Re: Video capturing size question

You have two choices for Video size when creating MPEG4's. 320 x 240 or 160 x 120. Use the following instructions to change the size. Digital Still Camera Mode 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD position. 2. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 3. Press the MENU button. 4. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY. 5. Press the ENTER button to enter the submenu. 6. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MPEG4 SIZE. 7. Press the ENTER button. The MPEG4 SIZE toggles between 320 x 240 / 160 x 120 with each push. 8. Press Menu to Save and Exit.

How do I upload miniDV tapes to PC running windows 7. What's the best way to save the tapes for editing


Use the IEEE1394 Firewire interface on your PC if you have one. If your PC does not have a IEEE1394 port then you may be able to add one via an internal add-on card or a PCMCIA card if it is a laptop. With Windows 7, you can use Windows Moviemaker to capture the video. Don't bother with USB capture as this will be low quality and too slow. Moviemaker is not great for editing so you should investigate alternatives.
Captured video will take about 4GB of hard disk space for 20 minutes of video. If you are using a FAT32 file system then this is the maximum file size limit. You should therefore use NTFS to capture large video files.

The file size of the video imported from DCR-HC32E is huge. A 60 min. cassette is converting 12-13GB files!! Is there anyway to reduce the file size at the time of importing the video. Pankaj


You can convert the file to another format or cut the file into several pieces.
Use Video Download Studio to download video to help you with conversion. it can convert between almost all the formats of video and audio:
AVI to WMV, FLV to MP4, MPEG4 to FLV, MOV to MKV, VOB to MP3, etc.
AVI to WMV, FLV to MP4, MPEG4 to FLV, MOV to MKV, VOB to MP3, etc.

I am making discs using the everio share station. Even though I have the date showing when I play it through the camera, it does not show up when I play the disc back. How do I get that to work?


unfortunately, with everio share station will not allow you to do it that way. You really, absolutely need the date and time on the video, you will have to capture the date and time with another device. For example, the one touch video capture vc500 will do that for you. To my knowledge, there are no software out there that can capture date and time at the moment.

Transferring video from tape to PC


Hi. I do know how to do that. You need some software that's capable of controlling the camera such as Adobe Premiere, Final Cut, or something like that. I believe Microsoft Movie Maker will do it and so will Roxio Media Creator which is the package they sell that burns CDs and DVDs as well. It's a whole media center.

The camera has the capability of being controlled through the firewire port on the front. You get a cable for the firewire port on the camera (firewire mini 4 pin) that goes to the computer (firewire 4 pin standard size). If you have an older computer with no firewire and it does have a PCMCIA card slot sometimes called a PC slot, or express card slot ... you can buy cards that will give it firewire ports.
You MUST have firewire to do this. The newer machines like the Acer Aspire One or any of the netbooks don't have any way to add firewire although the CPU is fast enough for video work. I capture on my old computer with firewire, and save the video to an external hard drive and edit on the netbook. Anyhow, I'm getting sidetracked!

Open your editing program and have it do a movie capture. The capture window will have buttons that look like the ones on the camera for fast forward, reverse, play, stop, etc. plus a couple for single frame reverse and forward which is useful for editing. It will also have a record button on the software. Play the tape and just as you start it, hit record. It should capture and you'll see a little data window on some software showing the frames captured and dropped during capture. That's about all there is to it. Editing is a bit trickier and I'm still learning alot of it. You can get older copies of Premiere online from a number of different sites. It's my personal favorite. It does more ... but the movie making software Microsoft provides with Windows XP and above will perform the capture perfectly well. Good luck with it.

If you have trouble, I'll be happy to get online in a chat session and talk you through it if that would help. I'm on AOL and my email is ljmagnuson@aol.com.

IMovie capture is poor quality.


hello referring to the SD1 from Panasonic, i recommend to deinterlace the captured clips with "JES Deinterlacer" before editing them with imovie. be careful to use "apple intermediate code" at the output of JES Deinterlacer. i clearly get better results this way, max recommendable size at 1280x720p when exporting QT files... kind regards, bruno

I have problem with capture Dv file from Camera to PC


Make sure you have the camera's power supply connected when you're doing a capture. (i.e. don't run from batteries). Try a different cable and try another port on the computer.

Capturing video


I had to get a Firewire cable to make this cam work with Vista. I was told Firewire is faster (?) and much better video quality because it is made for loads of data. I can't tell any much of difference from USB, but it does work with Firewire. So, basically try a Firewire cable.

Transferring analog to DVD


I envisage two options for you: 1. Install a video capture card in your pc. Choose one that has ports that match your analog camcorder ports. Best option: Separate capturing using S-video + a separate audio connection. Common and simpler option: Campture "composite" video using one video + one audio jacks. You don't need a new camera to make DVDs from your analog tapes. 2. Buy a pass-through (must be this type, not all digital cameras have this function!) digital camera. Connection and flow: analog camera (or your analog VHS VCR)to digital camera (via RCA cables); digital camera to pc (preferably using Firewire)- all simultaneously. Here, the digital camera will perform the function of a capture card. You will certainly need a software to capture via capture card/pass-through digital camera to your pc hard disc. Your captured video on pc can be initially in AVI/ DV AVI(better options to edit) and then convert to MPEG2 (DVD) format, or directly in mpeg format (with poor editability). Frame size (capture resolutions) should be as big as possible. In any case you will need some basic knowledge on digital video, capturing, and editing. And all the nitty-gritty that you will need to know can be found somewhere like "Digital Video Primer" and "DVD Primer".

Difference between MPEG2 and MPEG4?


MPEG2 video is DVD-quality video comparable to digital camcorders. The picture data is transferred at a rate of about 30 frames per second, for a beautiful, smooth motion image. It will show up on your SD Memory Card as ".MOD" or ".MOI". MPEG4 video is suitable for use in a compatible PC, viewing on a TV, posting on Web pages or attaching to e-mail. It is inferior to MPEG2 in smoothness because the number of the frames transferred in MPEG4 is less than that in MPEG2. However, MPEG4 has a higher transfer rate, and a much smaller file size, than MPEG2. It will show up on your SD Memory Card as ".ASF", which stands for Advance Systems Format files.
