First post on here and I hope someone can help. I'm trying to capture some holdiay footage and make a DVD for my family. The video was captured on a Sony DV camcorder and I've tried Windows Movie Maker and Adobe Premier Elements to capture the viedo off the tapes and edit them.
Iv'e downloaded and am trialling Premier Elements and the capture process seems quite flaky. The software is locking up and stops/freezes every now and then.
The video that is captured isn't great. Any characteres moving int he scenes have jaggies/distortion on the and its quite blurry. I tried making a flash movie for Youtube and it was horrendous, couldnt see a thing!
Is this most likely a hardware or software problem do you think?
Hardware is: Intel C2D @ 2.4Ghz, Win XP, 4Gb RAM, ATI X1800XT 128MB RAM graphics card.
Windows Movie Maker captures from the DV camera fine, but the editing options are.....limited. I really like the Pre. Elements interface.
Thanks for any insight.
