Video Capture Image Quality Loss

by voxunum / November 21, 2006 9:03 AM PST

I'm having a video capturing image loss issue. My
Panasonic DVC30 records beautiful video, as can be seen both on the viewing screen and when I display it on a TV. However,
when I go to preview and then capture, the image
quality loss is awful. I have a 9600xt All-In-Wonder
graphics card and I've attempted both S-video and RCA
with similar results. I've also tweaked the capturing
quality options in the Studio 8 and Windows video
capturing programs. I'm at a loss and could really use
some advice. I want to record and render an image
that is the same on my camera! What should I do? Thanks.

Image Quality..??

DV is the best money can buy..
either your Camera is have bad spots in your DV-tape..or your Firewire needs to be Updated..
I have a PanaSonic/PV-DV53...its about 3-years old..and has gone into extremes on Video Capture(Smoke)(RAIN)(Blizzard)..
Its a really good Camera still..
But....the FF and Rewind Buttons don't get used any more..they seem to cause a malfunction in the Tape-bed..createing a SCRAMBLED Picture on DV-output to the PC..
I Hand Wind my TAPES now-a-days..I would suggest that you never USE Fast Forward...the DV-tape is sensative in its physical make-up..
I think DV-tape is the best medium over the HDD version that are out..
But the 30-GB HDD Camera sounds reasonable.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
