Hi,

I'm very new with all this stuff, I'm having issues recording AVIs. I am
capturing film from my Samsung DV camcorder onto MM as avi footage, but when
I play it back, the video goes too fast. All I want to do is edit my videos
and then burn the edited footage back to a dv tape through my camcorder. I've
done a search in this newsgroup under "Avi speed" but couldn't find anything.
Can anyone tell me how I can capture the video so that it plays back in "real
time"?

Thanks

what is your model number, and are you capturing via firewire or USB?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1100, using a Samsung SCD303 camcorder (DV), and using
the latest MM version. Capturing via firewire.

Thanks for help.

I'm sorry, like I said I am new to this, so reading your site I got pretty
confused - it looks very informative but I just don't get the terminology.

What I need to know is, how can I record avi's so that they are the same
speed as what you see in the camcorder? I don't have an issue with this when
I record wmvs for my computer, but then if I do that, then the quality of the
video doesn't look acceptable when I burn it on to a data cd-r and play it on
my tv. That is why I want to record avi's onto a dv tape, so that I basically
have edited versions of the 6+ hours of footage that I took. Please helP! Thx.

did you record them in standard play speed of 1 hour per tape, or extended
play?

do a test capture with the WinDV utility and see if you have the same
results... link on my Setup > Other Software page.

Ok I downloaded WinDV and captured about a minute of avi footage for test. I
played it back on WMP and the speed is ok but there are video "hiccups", like
it's staggering or frames are missing. I recorded the original footage in SP
mode, 1 hour per tape so it's good quality. I have yet to have a smooth
experience recording footage from my dv though.

moving files back and forth between you camcorder and hard drive is mostly
dependent on the speed and condition of the hard drive.... starting with a
fast enough drive (7200 rpm is good, 6400 rpm can work with care), it should
have lots of free space, be defragged, and you should minimize other things
using the drive during the capture.

playback of a DV-AVI file is hard for a computer too... the best test is to
take that one minute file and run it through MM2 to a small sized WMV
file... then assess the WMV for completeness and smoothness.

I'm still having alot of trouble with everything. Maybe I should be more
explicit:

First, I started capturing my film (from a Samsung SCD303 DV camcorder) to
MM2, saving them onto my computer as wmvs. This worked ok at times, actually
smoother than avis, but when I would try to make a movie and play it back, it
would stagger and skip frames, but not audio. When I would save it onto a
data cd using Nero Startsmart, it took 120 minutes to make a 50 minute film,l
and when I played it on the tv, it was low quality.

So I decided to capture some footage on avi, in hopes that I could capture
10 minutes at a time and record it to a dv tape. When I would capture the
footage as avis and play them back using WMP, the footage played too quickly
but the audio was ok. Also, when I played it on WMP in full screen mode, the
avi looked low quality.

I also downloaded TMPEGEn to convert wmv to mpeg and burned it onto a data
disc. No improvements visually, the same as a wmv.

Then I did as you suggested and downloaded WinDV, recorded a one-minute
clip, played it back, and it played slower (a good thing) but frames skipped.

Lastly, I took that same clip, put it through MM on the storyboard, and
played it, and it staggered and skipped frames much more, and it played too
slow this time.

So this is a bit frustrating for me. I'm just not well informed about all of
this. Would appreciate pointing me in the right direction in more laymen's
terms. Thanks alot.

You didn't mention the last part of the test.... once it's on the
storyboard, save it as a WMV file ... use a pocket PC choice,.. and see if
it plays OK...

I'm also thinking maybe checking for codec interference, directx update,
poor pc specs, other apps conflicting when capturing, poor hdd
performance...
What do you think Papajohn?

Hi Graham,

I'm thinking that he's starting with a low-end system.... here's a quote
from one website: "10/7/03 - Dell's Inspiron 1100 budget desktop replacement
is probably one of the oldest systems available for under $1000 and its
components show that age." and the user has moved from WMV to DV-AVI, which
is a pretty big setup in system demands to play smoothly.

..... and the hard drive gets more fragmented over time unless it's tuned up.
That's why a think rendering and playing a small pocket PC WMV file is the
only way to tell if all the info is in the DV-AVI file.
