When I go into the CAPTURE for Analog composites devices such as my JVC analog Camcorder, VCR to capture, these are my presets in Studio12.1.
Movieboard Studio 12 > for a Analog VHS-C, or analog Camcorder -
CAPTURE> COMPOSITE >
MPEG CAPTURE Three options Video CD, SVCD Compatible, and DVD Compatible.
Or CUSTON SETTINGS >
Video Source Pinnacle 500-PCI
TV Standard – NTSC 4.3
AUDIO – Realtek HAD Primary Input – line Volume (from onboard soundcard
Using supplied Studio audio cable from camera RCA analog audio to soundcard)
CAPTURE FORMAT >
AVI or MPEG 1/ or 2 (I have AVI enabled)
DATA RATE– 6000 kbits/sec
Unless I’m Capturing from a MPEG 1 or 2 file from digital camera, that I have to worry about these settings below? Right now, I want to capture analog AVI Composite video.
MPEG TYPE > Mpeg1, Mpeg2
RESOLUTION> 352x480, 480x480, 720x480
SAMPLE RATE 48 KHz
ENABLE BACKGROUND RENDERING – yes
I have my JVC analog camcorder hooked up as follows:
From Camcorder >VIDEO-OUT to PCI-500 VIDEO IN
From Camcorder AUDIO OUT to LINE-IN to my Onboard soundcard (Realtek HD)
I’m not very sure about the MPEG settings, since I want to capture only old analog VHS video for now.
I started with the Studio MovieBoard 12.1,but just upgraded to the 14 Ultimate and now when I capture from analog,VHS-C tapes, the sound from the original tape is out of sync with the video. Some have mentioned if my sound card worked with other programs and not with Studio, it could be a paging file or virtual memory issue.
Tried this - Clicked on Video Input > COMPOSITE,
AVI CAPTURE > USER-DEFINED QUALITY > SETTINGS
PRESETS - AVI, CUSTOM – GOOD, (I’ll try “BETTER” next time)
COMPRESSION > M-JPEG
AUDIO SETTINGS – Include Audio is checked. PCM
When I turn on the camcorder I can see the preview of the video, but when I press START CAPTURE, The preview screen goes black and the ‘Captured’ counter is at 00:00:00:00, and the Frames dropped is ‘0’.
STILL NO SOUND FROM analog CAPTURE - I can capture video from analog camcorder, but no sound from video. There must be something somewhere turned off, although when I unplug the audio RCA from the camera and the sound card (which was line-in, from camera to computer) and plug in my speakers (line-out) I do get normal window sounds and my reg music. Weird. I have updated my GPU driver recently and the date is 10-16-2010 version 6.14.0012.6099, also my Realtek HD audio.
I checked my Virtual Memory in SYSTEM and this is what I saw >
Boot Drive C:\ Initial Virtual MEM. = 2046
Maximum " " = 4092
DATA DRIVE F:\ 0
I also shut all background APPS off while capturing analog. Would something like this below, help me with the sync problems?
I just found this and wondered if anyone had to change these settings to fix the sync problem:
Issue: Sound and video are not synchronized on video captured from an analog capture card.
Resolution: This problem can occur during capture from an analog capture card if CPU utilization exceeds 95 percent. To avoid this problem, configure virtual memory to be “System managed” by following these steps:
1. Choose Start -> Control Panel.
2. Open the System control panel.
3. Click the Advanced tab.
4. Click the Advanced tab.
5. In the Virtual memory box, click Change.
6. Select System managed size, and click Set.
7. Click OK.
