Ouch.

Makes me glad my DV editing setup has analog in. Just plug in the cable and get flawless capture.

Just like the space shuttle getting ready for blast-off, there are a number of procedures to execute before capture.
Hahaha, that cracked me up!

do you guys need to 'decomb'/deinterlace with dv? never tried it before since i have hi8.

when you pan around really fast do you see blurring?

No. No fooling with the video at all. But I never had to do that with Hi-8 either.

Blurring is caused by a too slow shutter speed.

wow, what'd you use to capture?

i use the all in wonder 8500dv analog inputs and mmc 8.5 with the latest drivers (3.6). i get the problems that are described in the article i linked up above. they all have the 'interlaced' problem that i have to try and 'decomb'. you never had to do it? hmmm maybe your capture device did it automatically for ya?

I use Canopus DVRex which has analog inputs and a Sony hardware Codec on board. Analog or digital inputs are equally easy to capture.

I learned very early in my video business that time spent fighting the equipment is money lost. Hence the use of Canopus products. I've been using Canopus for over 4 years now and rarely have a problems associated with their equipment or software.

YOu can buy the M1 board used for around $350 or less today. The software is free (RexEdit) and the board will work with Premiere and MSPro if you have them.
