I've read some threads about HDV to SD conversion via various methods incuding in camera, however, I'm not clear on what the latter is. I've used my HDV in DV mode and captured as such. I also have some HDV tapes I'd like to use in DV format--any suggestions as to whether I can do that, and how. I know this is not a PE issue per se, but I've had a hard time getting this answered.
Thanks in advance.
Much will depend on your particular camera, and whether it has DV Lock.
What make/model camera do you have?
As Bill says, virtually all HDV camcorders are capable of shooting in -- or at least outputting -- standard DV video.
Thanks Bill and Steve, I have a Vixia HV30. So theoretically, I have the shooting menu set to DV, and tape is in HDV, it will stream as DV?
