    Post Can I Capture Date & Time from my D8

    I try to convert my home VDO from digital 8 tape to DVD and I want to show date & time for 5 second at every start of batch but I can't capture date and time from my digital 8 - Pls suggest.

    fire wire
    notebook P4 1.8

    Well before this I convert my digital 8 VDO footage to VHS by connect camcorder to VTR and the VHS can show date & time as I want.

    What program are you using to capture?
    You can try the free utility, DVDate and try capturing with the free utility WinDV

    How old is the cam? My old sony D8 had the date time stamp option that could be turned on and off when needed.

    Premiere Elements does not display Time Code, you need to use another program as I stated above. If you are using another program then that may be a different story.

    ..Like I stated, some Sony D8's has the option of adding it to the video. ex.. my old Sony TRV140 D8 has the feature.

    Default Thanks for your suggestion

    My Sony TRV 730E also has function to show or not for date & time stamp but that only work when I use the normal VDO cable to transfer my VDO to VTR for VHS tape - well I use this function via remote control . But when I capture VDO footage to computer via fire wire this function ( show/not show date& time ) doesn't work at all.

    May be I have to try another program or insert date & time in the title.

    Thank you very much
