Ok, I just got my capture device and opened everything and got it all installed. I have no problem capturing from my XBOX to my pc and into Ulead Video Studio 8(came with cap device), but once I get into the program and select clips from the source video and save them I run into major problems. Any video I save, regardless of format, has audio, but no video. Seeing as I am trying to make a video and not an mp3, this is useless to me. Is there a trick to this program I am overlooking?
I have VS 10 and 11 so I’m not sure if this applies to 8 but in the capture process you have to be specific about what you are capturing. In VS 11 you have to specify the device in one drill down and the mode (DV, MPEG, etc.) in another.
One way to make sure you have video to begin with is to capture using your program and then exit, find the captured video file and see if it plays in Windows Media Player. If it doesn’t, you probably don’t have video, if it does play video, you have something to tweak in VS8, like a patch or some sort of codec update. Check the Corel site.
Well, my initial capture works fine. Itsaves as an AVI file and it is able to played or edited. What I am doing is capturing it with Ulead and then using Window Movie Maker (I know, sucks) to do basic cut/edit at the moment. With Ulead, the video works within the program, but anything saved is black screen with audio.
Well, it could still be two things, the render (program) or the playback (program). Can you render a small clip the same format in both WMM and Ulead8? Like a wmv or something (not avi.)- as long as you are sure its the same output format. That should help you rule out your player. If at some point the Ulead product has worked in the past, and doesns’t work now, I would uninstall/reinstall and run all updates. I had to do that with version 11 once – I know it’s tedious, but your problem is rather peculiar.
Please can you let me know where you are up to with this as I have the exact same problem!!
I have this programme installed and captured video from my vcr using the vhs-c cassettes and once the video is capured and I want to stop and go to next step (burn to dvd), a micro soft window pops up and says files are corrupt and will be automatically deleted leaving me nothing.This happens whether I capture for 5 minutes or 2hr.Is there some software that is required to eliminate this or is it a security issue.I would appreciate help if someone has a similiar problem.
I am using the easycap usb 2.0 adapter with audio and I assume all the download wizards were on the cd.My operating system is windows xp.Thank you.
