Vegas 7 - Do I need a driver for my HD50 deck?

Hello all.

I'm a long-time lurker...first-time poster.

I offer my deepest gratitude to this community for all the crucial information that I have gained about my HD100. Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge with me!

I chose to edit with Vegas 7, as I've read it is currently the most stable NLE for 720/24p. I love the software so far, but I'm having capture issues.

During capture (Native 720/24p), from my HD50 deck (firewire), Vegas recognizes that a device is there but does not allow me to control it remotely. When I capture manually, picture and audio hit the timeline perfectly. But once I begin to edit, sync is lost and the image begins to stutter.

My question: Do I need any drivers for the JVC deck to get this system in order? My PC has all the latest MS updates, but I feel as though I am missing something. Finally, the device manager does not give me any "JVC" options. My only choice is the "AV/C subunit". Is this normal?

Hello George,

Don't know if this will help but you may want to try a 3rd party capture utility such as HDVSplit (freeware) or Gearshift (cheap) or the trial version of Cineform's HDLink (free for 15 days). If you can control the deck with these, then it's probably something amiss in the Vegas software capture utility. If not, then it's most likely a driver/system issue. For all I know, that deck doesn't allow deck control.

Thanks for the suggestions Jon.

I just noticed that my Vegas software is not the latest version. AKA "7.0e".

The free update is available through Sony. I'll give that a shot.
