    No audio when Capture video from a DVD on MAC

    Rejean2100

      Hi,

       

      My set-up : A MAC Intel (8xprocessors), 6gigs RAM, 250 GIGS free,  ect....

      A ADVC110 As interface for video

      A ProfireLightbridge as sound card

      I have Adobe Premier CS4 v.2.o

       

      When I capture a video from a DVD, I capture the Video with a empty audio track....!!! It does not capture the sound track??? video only ?

      I do import a sequence (video), I got my video and the audio is there and working...

       

      I have FinalCut Pro, I do the same : Everything working ! I capute video and audio with the same installation.....

      So, I am shure all my stuff working proprely ans the are setting proprely.

       

      If I record myself in the mixer ( in Adobe premier), that's working...

       

      I go in the preference in Adobe to set all my audio setting, no positive result....

       

      Anyone as the same problem, or any tips

          Maybe your DVD does not adhere to the strict standards that Adobe requires.

            This is actually "Importing" (from a DVD-Video, it's also called "ripping"), and not "Capture" in the pure sense.

             

            With CS4.2, this should not be an issue, unless there is an issue with the DVD-Video NOT being 100% DVD-compliant. Where did the DVD come from? How was it authored? Do you know if the Audio is PCM/WAV, or AC3. CS4.2 should be able to handle either, but see the first sentence above.

             

            Good luck, and will wait to see the answers regarding the DVD-Video.

              Bill,

               

              I almost made that same remark, but he is using the ADVC-110 to capture, so he is correct. Unless the Canopus converter is doing something wrong, which is highly unlikely, his capture stream is simple DV AVI with PCM stereo sound.

                Harm,

                 

                I meant to ask what the AVCHD had to do with it, as it then appears that it's a DVD-Video, that is the issue.

                 

                Now, does this camera record AVCHD to DVD, and if so, then would this still not be Importing? Maybe I'm just confused.

                 

                [Edit] Duh!!!! Not AVCHD, but a Canopus/Greenvalley 110! Sorry, but my new Google Chrome has a different display than my old IE - plus I do not have my "computer glasses" on. Sorry about that.

                  OK, now that part of my stupidity is cleared up, what are your Input and Output settings for Audio Hardware in PrPro? Might be something there.

                   

                  Sorry for the false start, and good luck,

                    With all these abbrevations around it sometimes is difficult to keep track, but the ADVC-110 from Canopus is an Analog to Digital Video Converter, hence the ADVC. Effectively you connect your DVD player over analog to the ADVC and capture over firewire the signal which is converted to DV AVI type2, or MOV in the MAC environment. It is a pretty nifty small device and very handy for these circumstances.

                     

                    To the OP: Try with on-board sound. Does it still happen?

                      Harm,

                       

                      Yes, if I could only see my screen. I'm very familiar with the device, but just did not read, nor comprehend, correctly. I use similar and will be adding the Canopus 300 soon, to replace my Turtle Beach A-D card.

                       

                      Now, a side-note that might, or might not apply. When using the Turtle Beach software, I always have to manually reset my Audio for each ripping/capture session. Why? I do not know. My Video specs. hold session to session, but the Audio (even though they are set correctly, they do not "take," until I reset to the same). I wonder is similar might be happening in PrPro - yes, different software, but the same functions. Just a thought.

                          Something to think about - PrPro CS4.1 & 4.2 (but not earlier) will Import the .VOB's, allowing you to edit. The process would be to first upgrade PrPro to CS4.2 (current), and then copy the .VOB's from your DVD-Video to your HDD. From there, Import those into PrPro. So long as your DVD is 100% DVD-compliant, that will work without having to use the Canopus.

                           

                          Good luck,

                            I will repeat,

                             

                            If I import any video from a hard disc, (.mov) I have my video and audio in my timeline and I may listen to it.

                             

                            When I capture (press F5) to get video from my DVD player (as exemple), I did record,

                            In the inpector ( left window) I have my Video

                             

                            I drag my video in the first tv screen (the left one), result : video no sound,

                             

                            and I check the soundtrack : the soundtrack is empty

                             

                            IT's like you do recorded with no audio for peoples know audio recording....

                             

                             

                            My Set-up : for sure  I set My profirelightbridge as an audio interface and I see All my 24 tracks......

                             

                            So, any anwswer for me,

                                    I am sorry that I was not clear. What I am asking for are your settings in Preferences for PrPro. These will determine how the program works, and also how it Captures. There are several pages of possible settings.

                                     

                                    Now, if you have the trial, remember that it does NOT work with anything MPEG, Audio, or Video. That is a limitation, and is rectified, should you purchase and install the full-paid version of the program.

                                        If you are using the trial, and I am still not certain that you are, what you need are the entire set of MainConcept MPEG CODEC's. Unfortunately, the trial version will not allow this. The full-paid version will, and they will both be included, and installed, when you install the full-paid version.

                                         

                                        The two limitations of the trial are a 30-day time clock, that will shut down the trail after 30-days, and the total lack of anything MPEG. It is stated clearly on the trial download page.

                                         

                                        Now, you can do about anything, besides MPEG, in the trial. There is no watermark, or similar. There really are no other limitations - just MPEG.

                                         

                                        You can work with, say MOV [Animation CODEC], AVI, and many other formats - just nothing MPEG.

                                         

                                        This is for licensing reasons. Adobe pays for the MainConcept MPEG CODEC's. MainConcept will charge Adobe for EVERY instance of those CODEC's, so Adobe chose to not pay for them, for the trial. They do, for the full-paid version.

                                         

                                        Hope that this helps you.

                                         

                                        Hint: if you do go with the full-paid version (remember, it offers a 30-day, money-back guarantee, should you not like it), you will want to uninstall the trial version, then run Adobe Clean Script CS4 (for your OS) a couple of times, and only after you've done so, then install the full-paid version. If you do not do this, there will be problems.

                                         

                                        Good luck,

                                          Here's an entry in the PrPro-Wiki FAQ section on the limitations of the trial version.

                                              I am only on a PC. Probably, the majority here are also PC, though there are more Mac-users every day, and there are also quite a few here, who work on both platforms. Because I am on a PC and you are on a Mac, many of my normal suggestions would not apply, so I did not make them.

                                              I think that the only stupidity was in my first reply, as I did not read your OP correctly, or comprehend it fully. Harm Millaard, anything BUT a stupid person, corrected me quickly, and I apologized for my errors. "Stuff" happens. I will be stupid again, I assure you. Now, if we omit my error, early on, you have received anything but stupid tips, suggestions and help. The vast majority of the subscribers here, regardless of their native platform, offer great insight and aid to users. They love doing that, or they'd not be here. It's all about trying to help. Now, not everything that they offer will apply, or be helpful. That happens often, when one is trying to remotely troubleshoot a problem. None of us is sitting at your machine. This is not done in real time, but over time. Sometimes a question gets asked twice, because a responder did not catch that it had already been asked, or maybe did not understand the answer.

                                              That is probably the best course of action. I think that you will be far happier with FCP, than you ever will with PrPro. Stick with that plan.

                                               

                                              Sorry that your experience here was such a bad one. Just remember that it was not because the subscribers were not trying to help you.
