It's not necessary to do so. In fact, it won't improve your video quality.
If you're capturing your video through the AVDC into a FireWire connection on your computer, your captured video should look identical to the original -- except digital.
Steve => thanks for replying.
Yes, im using the Firewire connection and use capture in Premiere Pro.
Teh monitor on the camera is not very good, so i can't compare the film. but as you replyes it should be det same but digital.
But im just wondering, where this Quality = Normal can be changed, i dont see any settings for the capture with this option.
Do you know if S-video will give an video improvement? What I read (in danish) using Composite (Sinle phono yellow out), is the worst quality out put, and S-video is recomended if possible.
I don't know where you change the quality setting. But I'm sure if you post to the Community Forum at videomaker support site http://Muvipix.com you'll find someone who does. I know a number of people on that forum that use the Canopus unit.
That said, I don't think it will make much difference if you capture your video as composite or S-video. Your results should look identical to the original footage either way. And you can't get better than that!
Steve => Thanks for your help.
register at the muvipix.com and seached the forum and only found threads saying good things about canopus 110 and 300.
regading composite vs S-Video, is because if composite offers more quality loss than S-Video, then S-Video must offer better or closer to the original quality.. the best should be component (Y-Cb-Cr (RGB) for analog signal, if is true what i read.
Is there a reason you only searched and didn't ask on the Muvipix forums???
Steve => I didn't got the time to formulate the question (im danish, and don't write much english, therefor it takes mere longer time to formulate my question) and right now its evening/night here.
Thats why i only seached the site, just to see if any already had a question/thread regarding the same problem/question like mine.
im sorry, if that made no senes
