Hello, I want to be my S-VHS video digitizer best. Effects than the Canopus hardware 300 and a good S-VHS VCR. Missing only the software to capture. Do you have experience with what software / codec you the best quality erziehlt? Viele Grüsse Jonas
The codec you are already Canopus 300. The device feeds DV video into the PC.
You can actually fit each DV capture program, so the IR signal of the firewire card and to read into a DV AVI file to write. In the field as freeware WinDV or CaptureFlux. VirtualDub is IMHO not suitable.
The DV AVI files will have a size of approximately 13 GB / h. If the file s.Stück you need is an NTFS formatted partition memory requirement.
The question is rather: How do you want to further? What is your target format? DVD? Do you already have editing software?
Good luck The thick Stefan

Hello Stefan and Jens, first thank for your info.
If I get the DV-AVI files on the PC had s.Ende I wanted it to a DVD compatible format bring - probably Mpeg2!
Or could you recommend a different format?
With what software / codec should I believe your DV AVI files and convert cut.
My PC is newly [Core2Duo] and the hard disks [raid 0] should be synonymous fast enough for most programs.
The problem is that the videos are no longer in the best quality and I, therefore, the quality loss is as low as possible want. The best would be a program which perhaps synonymous nor the car a little more saturated colors and sharpens the contours ..
So, Magix Video 2007 and Pinnacle Studio 10, I have, but would not be a software Edius Pro how much better?
Many greetings and thanks Jonas
Antwort von Stefan:
MPEG2 can be set so that it is DVD compliant. MPEG1 can manage synonymous DVD compatible. Other opportunities have you not. There are no other compatible DVD codecs.
I put myself still a cut version of film in DV AVI format Page. In addition, I play the cut version on my DV camera back. That is, if the Camera DV-IN is capable of.
As you already ahnst, I cut out completely in DV AVI format, synonymous later if I need MPEG2 for DVD. The same, I can only recommend. Many DV editing programs are programmed so that only changed images in the video re-compressed. The rest is 1:1 copies without further loss.
Color contours and sharpening count as course changes s.Bildmaterial, everything is re-treated compressed. Which DV codec (Canopus, MainConcept, Matrox, Microsoft, Sony, Panasonic), the better or worse deals, and have often been bitterly debated.
You have several options ...
1 / DV => correction in the editing program => intermediate copy DV => MPEG2 encoding
2 / DV => correction in the editing program => copy with lossless intermediate codec or Frameserving => MPEG2
3 / DV => MPEG2-correction encoding and editing in the program or encoder
I guess mostly the way 1st However, I have the Canopus DV codec on the system. The ratzfatzschnell is synonymous to my old cucumber and a rather better.
Path 2 can for example go with VirtualDub. In particular, because VirtualDub filter for excellent noise and sharpening has.
Weg 3 implies that the MPEG2 encoder or encode the MPEG2 editing program which has the desired pretreatment.
As far as I know, there are of Edius Pro is a demo version. Try simple, whether you like it.
Good luck The thick Stefan

... the "sticking point" is really the MPEG encoder to be used / are! Everything of Ahead (Nero), Ulead, is in my view (view) tend not to good. I am an advocate of the MainConcept encoder. Super quality (especially low-motion artifacts) and the "Stand alone version" .-) very quickly! By default it comes with Premiere2.0 Pro `s been for the subsequent rendering and DVD authoring with, but there is not the Fixeste .-)! It `s been here in the forum already synonymous various discussions, but this has probably with the implementation of this encoder in their respective programs to be done and then MainConcept has no influence anymore. Possibly. it is synonymous him as a stand-alone version 1.5.1 for about 150 ¬ and buy regardless of cutting programs.
Antwort von Jonas M.:
Jens + Hi Stefan, because I really would like a lot of videos digitizer and the synonymous of high value, I will probably MainConcept encoder stand-alone growth, have already read a few times that the very well be ...
If I, however, only the MPEG-2 [dvd] encode suppose, I still need a good prog-rehearsed to the DV AVI videos something to improve [kontrast, schärfe] and to cut, but then again so synonymous have to be encoded .
Do you have experience with MainActor or VirtualDub would be the best program? Many Greetings and Thanks

Moin, for the best results s.besten unkompremiert capturing and then work with AviSynth scripts. Here
Antwort von Stefan:
If there really are many videos, I would, if possible, the image enhancement via hardware instead of making endless orgies implementation of filters.
In contrast and sharpness, I would, however, only very very slowly penetrated deal. Contrast, the viewer can easily s.eigenen TV set. Over-sharpening is easy. And the MPEG2 encoder you're doing no favors synonymous, possibly because it is bulky so that his precious bitrate verbrät (over-) sharp outlines in detail the manner instead of good overall picture can be expected.
According http://www.slashcam.de/artikel/Reviews/Canopus-ADVC-300.html should be possible "in the controller software, the sharpness of the entrances still a little lift, then the linear frequency response up to 5MHz."
