captured video jiggles

hello -

I have sony trv38 handicam, going via firewire into a va-10 mobo and 1700amd xp cpu, win2k, 256 2100 memory. there is only one hard drive. when I capture video using premiere 6.0, it looks great, but there is an intermittent slight jiggle / blurriness in the video-- it is not in the source tape, at least I don't think it is.

I thought maybe it was too short of a pre roll but rolling the video for 5 sec before capturing did not help.

I used drivers from the mobo disk, no updates.

this is the same computer with an ebay cpu that won't beep at startup. any idea of how to troubleshoot this? thanks - fj

Most people recommend a seperate hard

In reply to: captured video jiggles

drive for capture to avoid loss of frames. Also, you should not have ANYTHING else running while capturing. It sounds like you are losing frames probably because of contention for your single disk.

Also, something like Diskkeeper to defragment it should help.

Premiere should tell you it's dropping frames although I haven't used it.

Some complain about such in the video editor or PC. It usually vanishes on the TV.

There is no sign they'll fix it.
