I bought Roxio EMC7.5, but - in spite of following all the advice re updated drivers/defragging/hardware acceleration etc. -I failed to render a video where sound & picture didn't go out of sync. I had used EMC7.5 to capture a video from a home-recorded DVD+R, so I thought I'd try another video editing package on my captured material.
I bought Adobe Premiere Elements, but it refused to accept the Roxio-captured file. Is this because the Roxio file is, in some way, proprietary?
Anyway, my main requirement was going to be to capture video from a VCR. So I bought a Dazzle 90 convertor in order to supply material to either the Adobe or the Roxio products. It refused to copy anything to my PC - in spite of my changing everything (cables, adaptors, choice of USB2 socket) and updating all drivers (video, audio, Dazzle).
The question is - is there any point in going on? Should I spend £200 on a Canopus convertor? Or would that be another waste of my money? Shall I just wait 10 years until the problems have been sorted out by others?
