Pretend I'm on the north pole in some remote outpost and you're the only one who can save me….
Last night I decided to try Corel VideoStudio to capture/import. I know the program better and it was easier to navigate. So….I can import, but I did run into slowness and it hung on one attempt. Seems pretty clearly to be a capacity/performance issue on my PC. This at least is a problem I can understand and address. Today was going to set an external hard drive and see if it helps.
ps. The camera is a HVR HD 1000U so it does record HDV. And it feels cruel this set up, you're correct. I'm still not clear what the PP capture issue is/was but I will solve this puzzle eventually….as God is my witness!! (Or I will give up and buy an expensive more recently manufactured camera sooner rather than later….one or the other).
