View Full Version : DVApp and Firewire to a DSR11?

To satisfy my own curiosity, I'd like to compare the image quality between the Y/C and DV out through firewire. I'm doing all Lightwave and Mirage generated imagery and I'm losing color intensity in Y/C that I'm hoping will not happen in DV via firewire.

::edit:: (DVApp wouldn't load)

Thanks,

Using VT3 Patch 1 (has the smoke cleared on Patch2?)
WinXPro

EDIT: When clicking on it again, I got DVApp to load, but it says GetCapability returned an unknown device type - 0x1387, can't determine camera/vcr mode, and it doesn't keep up with the timecode. The colors are definitely better, but the -audio- seems off. Auugghhh....

EDIT2: Got DVApp to work even with the error messages by deselecting the DSR11 in the Switcher and closing VT3. Image quality is night and day better than Y/C, but I'm used to seeing these computer generated TGA image sequences in full glory in Mirage and as RTVs in TED.

...which is why you need Update 2!

Thanks Paul,

Tomorrow, when customer support is around. I just seem to botch it every time.
