I have been trying to capture clips from a Canon Vixia HV30 and I can successfully capture DV footage using a number of different programs, but when I try to capture the HDV footage the clips end up with distortion or static lines. This happens using Premiere Pro CS4, Windows Movie Maker and Adobe On Location CS4. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?
there are three things I regulary have to do with my HV20 and PremPro CS3.
HV20/30/40 – (find and) hit the reset. Then make sure the output is set for HDV, not AUTO.
In the Capture window of CS3 there is an option to capture HD. I often forget about it and then, an hour later, when the tape is captured (and it’s crap) I go back and capture properly.
hope that helps
