Can I turn audio preview off during capture of HD?

I seem to recall reading somewhere that audio cannot be turned off during capture of M2T files. Please tell me I'm mistaken!

You could always unplug the speakers! :-)

That is a real bummer, but thanks Edward. I normally edit while downloading.

You could use HDV Spilt for capture. It also has a useful feature to stop capture on dropped frames.

WHat are you using for capture?

We use Cineform and I'm pretty certain it does not preview audio. In fact it does not preview video either, so there you are!

When we are digitising we monitor the VTR audio or whatever through a mixing desk into a PA system rather than use the PC. This way we can edit to our hearts content whilst digitising in the background.

Hi Stuart, I use Vegas for capture.

I recently upgraded my PC to a new processor which deals with M2T as ieasily as if they are SD, they are perfectly manageable now, and I had hoped to avoid adding yet another pieced of unnecessary software to the workflow.

I suppose it may be unavoidable at this point, or I might use a laptop for downloading.

Hi Jeff,

I know what you mean but I've come to think that Cineform is a complete must for us. I found that the machine just couldn't handle effects laden M2t files on the timeline as well as it can intermediate AVIs from cineform.

I understand what you mean, Stuart, but on my timeline they behave just fine. I don't use many effects, a little MB here and there and that is about it. Like I said, they seem no different than my old SD files to me, which is why I spent $ on an upgrade, so I wouldn't have to add a single unnecessary step to my workflow.

I think I'm going to have to use a laptop for caputure!
