Horizontal lines problem after capturing Mini DV

by rmurer / May 1, 2009 6:51 AM PDT

Hi all,

any help will be appreciated.

I bought a Mini DV camcoder Sony HC-52, this works fine and nice, I recorded a few tapes, played on TV and looks very well.

Now I am trying to capture this to my PC to build a few DVDs and I have the following problem:

I tried to capture with Sony Vegas, WinDV, Premiere, Canopus Edius, etc... and I always got horizontal lines, below an example:

I can see this lines after the video is being captured, thru firewire.

Any help on how to solve this will be appreciated.
