    Default Video capture madness

    on my computer i have sony vegas, virtualdub and windows movie maker.
    HOWEVER the video capture doesn't work on either vegas or virtual dub (for some reason known only to themselves)
    this hasn't been a problem in the past because i've just used the (notably feeble) windows movie maker capture.
    HOWEVER recently when i upload using w.m.m. it really messes up the FPS rate, speeding clips up or slowing them down. As i mainly make Parkour films this is really annoying as accuracy is crucial.
    (i've tried using a different camcorder and it doesn't make a difference)

    SO i was wondering if anyone had any advice, or free programs i could download to capture.

    thanks folks.

    'An error has occured during the current operation.

    An exception has occured.'

    and i get the options 'ok' or 'details'

    I don't use Sony Vegas or Virtual Dub at present so this is more general advice. Try reinstalling one (Sony Vegas) first and see if that fixes it. Download the latest codecs or go onto Sony's website and see if they have the problem reported on there and is there a fix available for it. You should post this also in the Sony Vegas section of this forum or try a Sony Vegas specific forum, there must be thousands of them on the net. If you are using a mini dv camcorder + firewire, there is a freeware utility that allows you to capture to .avi.

    WinDV 1.2.3 (Freeware)

    WinDV is a free recording tool for digital camcorders.

    The WinDV tool uses Firewire to transfer your recordings from the digital camcorder to your hard disk and vice versa. The camera is controlled via the navigation bar on the WinDV interface. This tool offers a number of configuration options, for example, you can record DV-AVIs of type 1 or type 2. You can also freely define the date and time formats as well as file names.
