I am new to this forum would first like to say hi everyone.
I have some general problems and need some help/direction in solving them. firstly what Iam working on/with;
Camera: Panasonic NVGS15 (Bought 2004)
Capture method: Firewire
OS: Vista 64bit
video editing software: Adobe Premiere Elements 7
PC: AMD DC 64bit 6000+, 8Gb Ram, 7900GS, 2x250Gb Sata in Raid 0, Samsung 2253LW LCD, Samsung DL Burner.....
Background: I used to edit video from my camera when I had XP installed on my PC (Before upgrading) using Ulead software. Worked like a treat. Since then I have upgraded Ram and CPU and changed OS. Found that the old software was not compatible and am now learning to use Adobe software. My usual method is to capture via firewire to AVI format, minor edits such as clipping - maybe some effects - add music/titles then save as avi format, compile edited footage then author to DVD. Since my PC upgrade (Hardware and software) I am trying to capture/edit/author again.
My problem is that I have noticed that during capture, the footage seems to have a type of pixelization about it, especially when there is alot of moving objects in the scene. I dont know how to describe it any better. I tried playing some footage I had backed up that I had captured on my old setup and have the same issue. I have played an authored DVD on my TV which contains the same footage and it looks fine. I have a program called AVIcodec and it tells me the video codec of the AVI is called Sony Digital Video. I dont understand what could be the problem. A couple of therories I have:
codec issue? - playback and or capture?
Refresh rate on LCD? (I used to have a CRT)
all of the above?
Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated!
