View Full Version : DV type 1 not recognized by sound forge

Hello -
Have several clips captured in T3, last rev, using dvtype 1, and Sound Forge 5 (nope, haven't upgraded) says 'an error was encountered trying to open or save the AVI file. A necessary video codec may be missing'

I know I've done this before but can't remember if it was type 2 or not - can anyone help me get these type 1's to read in this app? What am I missing?

thanks - LA

I think the DV type 1 has a compressed (embedded) audio and is not the best way to save the files if you are going to edit them, i think the DV type 2 is the one you should use..

Correct, if you want to use the file with other programs, Type-2 is what you want, not Type-1.
