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?
Hi John T Smith,
My camera will only record standard definition DV but will do so in widescreen which is the setting I am using.
My project is set accordingly but I notice in 'Project Settings/General' that the frame size is set at 1920 x 1080 and cannot be changed and the editing mode is set at HD 1080i and also cannot be changed.
I am using HD output from my graphics card ( AMD Radeon 6450) to an HD capable Monitor, does this have any bearing?
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.
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?
Hi Bill and Steve,
I had not been into the new project settings, I have now done so and made the relevant changes. The settings were for HD as suggested and also NTSC ( I am in PAL-Land). I am pretty confident this will do the trick.
The camera is a Canon MVX350i Mini Tape. ( looks like an extra 'S' got in there on my discussion heading) connecting via firewire.
It is midnight here now so I think I will try a new project tomorrow.
Many thanks for the advice.
Hi John Bill and Steve.
Just to say I have tried a new project today and all went very well.
Thank you all for your help.
Great news, and thanks for reporting your success!
Good luck, and happy editing,
