Thread: Poor quality Firewire capture

  1. Question Poor quality Firewire capture

    Hi, I've got a Sony Mini DV cam that I want to do video editing with. I have a firewire card on an old pc which only has 1 gb of ram (2.6ghz processor, and intergrated graphics and win XP) and I'm finding that the quality with windows movie maker is very poor indeed. The quality when recording direct from the cam to a VCR for VHS playback is far superior.

    Obviously if the quality when recording direct to VHS is far superior than direct via Firewire to DVD via PC, then there must be something wrong?

    I thought about trying with my laptop but it does not have Firewire.

    Does anybody have any ideas re this problem......I have a lot of family movies that I need to get on DVD quickly!!!!

    Thanks in advance for any help..............

    I did not know windows movie maker could even receive a firewire input...

    The problem is this:



    Choose the middle option when you are capturing footage that will increase file size BUT will hugely increase quality.
