I am what is often referred to in the professional jargon as "a noob", and I need some help.
I've recently shot a video using my old Sony Handycam miniDV camera (DCR-HC14E), and while I've figured out how to stream the video from the camera to the PC via USB, I can't get it to stream it with a normal frame rate- it's always somewhere between 6 and 12, which makes for a choppy video.. I've only tried using a software called Debut Video Capture, so I came here for a recommendation.
Is the low frame rate due to the software itself?
Is it because my PC is a bit old (P4 2.8Ghz, but I don't feel any slowdown..)?
Is it the encoding?
Can you suggest any form of encoding that I should use?
Or is this how it's supposed to be?
