I have some source material on Hi8 tape. I have a Sony TR101 Handycam.
I am dubbing this material onto miniDV tape on a Canon Elura Digital Video Camcorder. I then transfer video from the Elura onto my PowerMac G5 via firewire.
The problem is that the final video always has a "video static" streak on the bottom of the frame. This is not obvious until it is played on the computer. It does not appear on the Hi8 tape. It does not appear on the miniDV tape. It only occurs when I import the miniDV material into my computer and view it on my computer. It does not matter what brand tape. And I have played around a bit with the settings in the Canon Elura.
Does anyone have an explanation, or better yet a cure.
