View Full Version : Firewire

Extremely new to VT3.

Two weeks ago I had been caputring footage from a Sony DVCam deck via firewire. It worked fine. The problem is now the firewire option doesn't seem to work at all. Is there anything I should be aware of, or any settings I should check when capturing through a firewire?

What type of problems are you having? Is VT3 not seeing your camera? Is it just not recording properly? Please embellish...

No, it doesn't see the deck at all (as far as I can tell).

When I pull up the capture screen, the format tab gives me drop down options for the video codec, audio codec, and format. However, before, when I was able to capture through the firewire these options were ghosted out.

Also, I do have DirectX 9.0b (I noticed this being discussed on previous posts).

And you do have "Main In" selected for the capture and the DV device on the Main bus of the switcher and External Controller?

Thank you.

I had been playing with the switcher without knowing what I was doing than had closed it out with the main bus selected to something other than DV.
