See if different software does the same thing...
Do note that the demo version of ScenalyzerLive puts a watermark in the files it creates
- I'm told that the OLD version of Scenalyzer is freeware... check the download page for details
OLD version of Scenalyzer is freeware
But it is impossible capture video with freeware version of Scenalyzer
Sounds like bad video and\or dirty heads.
I agree, it DOES sound like bad video and/or dirty heads. But I don't think that's it. I've played it back on 3 devices and cleaned the heads. I'm getting intermittent drops on much of the video that I've shot.
I think this may be a matching issue. It seems some video I shot doesn't have the audio problem. Some of it does. Not sure, but it could be the 36 vs 48khz audio issue. Going to take a close look at the resulting files.
Because I have the Production Suite, I also have On Location. I started tinkering with it tonight (had never really played with it before).
Just did my first capture of the same tapes, from the same playback devices and guess what? Pristine audio! Not one audio dropout. So... that leads me to believe there must be SOMETHING I have set wrong in Premiere.
Until I figure it out, I'll just stick with On Location for now.
>SOMETHING I have set wrong in Premiere
I have never used PPro for DV tapes... when I wanted tapes transferred, I used a Dv500 digitizing card with Premiere 6... but I have read, going way back to version 6, that Premiere's DV capture "module" was not the best (as I said, I've never used it, so no direct experience)
That is why I posted to the links I've saved from previous discussions, for other software that does the same thing
With OnLocation, you have Adobe software that does the same thing... from different source code
