Capture in CS6 won’t record VHS after loading Windows 8. Computer used to work, only change was upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8. The anomaly is that using the same settings, the capture works using CS5.5. The capture was a VHS tape through a Canopus converter (ADVC 300). Done many times before, the only change was Windows 8 instead of Windows 7. Weird that it works under same Windows 8 and conditions for CS5.5 but not for CS6. This indicates something different about CS6.
CS6 gives the message that the recorder in CS6 is not capturing any frames.
Anyone having similar problems?
Win8 does not require specific legacy drivers for capturing. Captured a number of tapes this week without problem, but I do have one major problem under Win8 and that is exporting to tape. Even though the firewire connection is used to start recording on the deck and the timecode shows it is running, there is no video and no audio recorded. Just a black tape. I have to investigate that further.
For John's information, I tried a Legacy Driver. Made no difference. When trying to record in CS6, I could see the video, but when trying to record, message received that no frames recorded. Nothing would happen. Left everything the same, same hookup, closed CS6, opened CS5.5 and recording happened. My guess is that Windows 8 may have changed a file in CS6 that prevents recording. I haven't tried recording to tape yet.
