Strange artefacts on captured video

    Hi

    I was capturing DV video (Pinnacle Studio8.5) to DV AVI under WindowsMe and everything seemed ok, although the 4 Gig file limit was annoying so...

    I just installed WindowsXP and using exactly the same software (latest audio & video drivers installed) I get a funny line of corrupted pixels down the left - maybe 1 or 2 vertical lines wide.

    I can't seem to get rid of it. Should I download a different codec?

    Any help appreciated.

    update: The video, while being captured and when output as (say) divx, just has a single line of pixels down the left that are slightly brighter than the rest, in playback within Studio, they look a lot worse, but less noticeable in the final version, but still annoying. I've tried Me again now, which has the same prob and plan on trying on another PC / firewire card... but if anyone has any ideas...?

    Hi,

    Im currently getting the same problem and was wondering if you managed to find a solution.

    It´s a clients pc and they capture from a Sony minidv deck via firewire to a Fast DV.Now card. PC is P3 550 running win 2k,. 512mb ram, and 3 7200rpm hard drives (seagate, quantum. ibm).

    The 80gb Seagate drive was added recently, and the customer told me he was dropping frames when capturing to that drive. So i just booted up his gear, started to capture and it doesnt drop frames at all, but he does get some mpeg artifacts on a few random frames. I´ve captured to all his drives and tried different source tapes just in case and as it stands I´ve no idea why its doing this.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    No, never did figure it out, but it seems to be in the overscan area as it doesn't show when played back on a TV, so I decided I'd just have to live with it.
