Thread: vhsc conversion to mini DV

  1. #1

    Default vhsc conversion to mini DV

    Can anyone offer any advice on how I can record the contents of a vhsc tape onto mini DV format?

    Heres the situation -

    Because I have no other way of capturing vhsc footage onto my computer I thought I should be able to record the contents of the vhsc tape onto Mini DV so I can then capture the tape through firewire from the mini DV onto my G5.

    Only problem is the DV tape (although displays the footage in the finder when I connect the two) wont record the vhsc footage

    I gathered this was beacuse of the analog vs. digital signals but since I could see the vhsc footage on my DV camera I figured there must be a way

    Im tring to avoid copying to vhs tape because of the quality

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated !!

    looks like you're in the right mode on your mini dv camera.

    You just haven't pushed the correct record button.... There's usally a sepperate record button for capturing from the AV input. Most of the time it's the 'play' button. What miniDV camera are you using for the conversion?

    Hey Mosh,

    Thanks for replying, the record button im using is a two button combo which is a holding down record button plus another blank button-

    I use this whenever I record from the TV or another DV camera so I know this definetley works as a AV input

    The camera is a Sony TRV 17E , its not the most newest camera (6 years) but it does just about everything else I need it to do

    Still trying to figure this out
