Got a similar question.

I have copied form hi-8 to mini dv and captured and have both the crawl at the bottom and a black border on the left side of the frame. I get the same results when going thru an Ads Pyro AVlink.

I havent tried another hi-8 camcorder as the feed deck yet(it's in the hands of a friend at the moment) but the tape is being played back on the VX3 that taped it.

is this standard for analog to DV conversion or is something else amiss?

Thanks John,

At work I have a Laird Dvora that I used with SVHS before we went digital, and I remember the crawl on the bottom of the screen, but not the black bar on the left.

Unfortunately since our pro SVHS deck died and was replaced with a consumer model I cannot get the Dvora to recognize it, so I just dump to mini DV first, added benefit is it gives me TC.

My personal system is also Avid, but still using my VX3.

Re : analog capture of Video8 tapes

Hello again:

Just want to thank all who suggested I use a Sony Digital8 camcorder to convert my old Video8 tapes -- using a borrowed Digital8 camcorder attached via Firewire/i-link to my HC1 the process was smooth with excellent results - no flicker - no nothing really except a perfect digital version of the original Video8 recording! With canopus conversion you could not achieve this plus I now have new DV tapes as digital backup and can import to PC the material I will want to use. Now a new problem though -- import in AVI format downgrades the original yes?? Can "native DV" editing be done -- and what format is "native" for a DV anyway??

Best,

- Are

It sounds like you made a digital copy from the original HI-8 material. So now just treat what you do as if it's a digital original. How do you normally proceed when you work with mini-dv camera tapes?
