Are you talking about capturing miniDV over FireWire cable?
If so, you certainly should not be have an audio delay in your captured video, and it's worth exploring why it's happening.
Place your camcorder little away from the CPU and capture the video. Please let me know if does not work.
Hi Steve, Yes I am capturing miniDV with Firewire cable. And yes OOKKEN I do have the camcorder right next to the monitor w/speakers while capturing video/audio. I do not have an audio delay in the FINAL captured video, what I do have is a tiny second delay when I am listening to both the video being captured and the audio from my camcorder at the same time as the PC is capturing the video. I am capturing to an internal second D drive that is empty other than captured videos. It does not affect the captured video, the mouths match the words spoken, I was just wondering why the audio delay between computer speaker and camcorder. Come to think of it I never noticed if the picture was a second behind also. I will have to check that out next capture. SO, the final result is great, just wondering why the heck the delay. I will try what ookken suggested, maybe it is an echo type thing? (don't know if that is correct wordage but I hope you know what I mean) Thanks for quick reply, Aliza
Any thoughts on this??
yes, there is a slight delay between the playback in the camcorder and the capture process in the program. It can get a bit annoying -- which is why I always turn the volume down all the way on the camcorder when I'm capturing.
But, as you say, it doesn't affect the capture itself.
There's apparently something going on in the computer that causes this delay. The program is looking for breaks in timecode and breaking your video into individual AVIs based on it, and that must be the reason.
Don't you have desktop speakers or headphones? You should hear the sound in sync with the video. Of course turn down the volume on the camcorder, which is probably controlled by the zoom control on your camcorder.
The speaker for my camcorder is on the camcoeder behind the flip out screen. If ythis is the case with your camcorder, just close the flip out screen.
