Aquiring video from a Canon MVXS350i DV camera.with PE11.

Apr 12, 2013 10:52 AM

Hi,

When aquiring video the  PE11 programme seems to identify my camers as a MicrosoftDV camera and VC and I get a message saying ' Your current camera settings is different from your project settings  Results may not be optimized' .

However I can capture the video and it seems OK.

How do I check and optimize the settings referred to and what are they?

I am using a  firewire card.

 

I am running Win7 64 bit.

The camera is six years old and I cannot find if any new software is required for the PC.

 

Thanks.

    Is your camera one that will record BOTH standard definition DV and high definition HDV?

     

    Do you have your camera AND your project both set to either DV or HDV?

    I would go back to New Project, and change the settings to DV NTSC (unless you are in PAL-land), Widescreen 16:9 w/ 48KHz Audio.

     

    That HD Project is why you got the error message about mis-matched footage to settings.

     

    Good luck,

    I can't find any listings for a camcorder with that model number. Can you confirm that model number?

     

    And is this a tape-based miniDV camcorder connected to your computer with a FireWire cable?
