    Default Problem exporting to DV tape

    Hi

    I'm a bit new to this and am trying to export a movie my daughter made back to DV tape, without success. Specs are Pentium 4 1.6GHz, 512 Mb, 80Gb second hard drive for the video, Firewire card (not sure what sort), Sony DCR-TRV22E HandyCam.
    She edited the movie in Sony Vegas. I rendered it as a single avi file which is about 12Gb (runs for 57 minutes). I have tried both the 'Print video to DV tape' function in Vegas and the 'Project playback' function in Ulead Video Studio. After rendering, the camera starts to record, but there is only a blue screen, no picture or sound. In Vegas the best I have got are the test patterns. In Video Studio, using a shorter test file, I have got some jerky snippets of video exported to the camcorder, with big gaps in between. Not sure where to go from here.

    Cheers

    I would say, as a start, to make sure you render the timeline before exporting to DV.

    Default Sony DCR-TRV22E HandyCam

    Yes, I did render the timeline.

    Having tried lots of things, I'm starting to think that this function (exporting video from computer to DV tape) is not supported by the camera -- a Sony DCR-TRV22E HandyCam. It's certianly not mentioned in the manual (though the salesperson assured us it could do it!).

    I'd be interested to hear anyone else's experience with this camera.

    cheers

    Firstly some good news.

    Your salesman was quite correct, the TRV22E is a DV-IN enabled camcorder. The instruction for recording to this camera using i-LINK (Sony speak for firewire) is discussed on page 123 of the UK manual.

    Secondly, to successfully record from a computer it is essential that the video produced by your software is set to DV Encoder Type 1. This is perfectly possible with ULead Video Studio v7. I don't use Vegas myself but would be extremely surprised if it could not encode DV Type 1.

    Whilst I haven't exported from ULead to the TRV22, I have to the TRV33 (TRV22 big sister). So I suspect that the problem is related to your project settings when you render the video. As far as ULead is concerned it is worth checking the options button when you create the video. I noticed on V8 that it defaults to type 2 instead of type 1.

    Hope that helps somewhat. Post back and let us know how you get on.
    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
