ADVC 300 capture problems with Vegas Pro 11.0
on Jul 25, 2015 at 2:45:03 am

Hope you all can help....
I am editing a project for a client, which requires me to capture footage from some DVD's they own. I captured the first disc without issue. When I began the second disc capture, the video started fine and then after about 5 seconds, went very dark and it appears to be loosing a chroma signal. It's hard to really see since the recording is so dark, but it does look like I have some color issues.

The ADVC is inline from the DVD player and my PC. I've swapped out firewire, composite RCA cables and DVD players.

Any suggestions on where to look for a solution?

If the footage is already on a DVD (presumably a "playable" DVD--not a data DVD), why not simply "rip" (copy) the DVD contents to your hard drive and work directly with the VOB files? (Vegas does import VOB files). I really don't see a reason for converting to DV using an ADVC-300. Plus, simply "copying" them is much, much faster than "playing" them through your ADVC unit. Depending upon what type of editing you want to do, Vegas may or may not be the best choice of editors. In any case, you need to provide a little more detail.

Wayne is right when he says to just rip it to your hard drive.
Copy the contents of the DVD to your hard drive.
If it only has one VOB file, drag and drop that onto your Vegas timeline.
If there's more than one VOB file, here's a great technique to avoid the audio dropout that alwyas happens at the change point.

Vegas allows you to open up a DVD .IFO file. This imports the entire .VOB chain for both video and audio tracks.

Click File / Open, then navigate to your VIDEO_TS sub directory and enter *.IFO in the File name input field. For a regular DVD you will see a VIDEO_TS.IFO, and a VTS_01_0.IFO. Select the VTS_01_0.IFO file and click on Open.

When you browse to the VIDEO_TS folder using "Import Media", it will appear to be empty until you select "All Files (*.*) in the import box. Once you do that, all the files will be visible. Select the appropriate one, import it and drag it to your timeline.

Wayne and Mike had offered you the best solution, all that can be easily
done in Vegas, pop in your disc and select Import > DVD Camcorder Disc, and
when done, it will all be their on the timeline.

[Steve Rhoden] "pop in your disc and select Import > DVD Camcorder Disc, and when done, it will all be their on the timeline."
+1

This is the easiest method. Put the ADVC 300 away. It's not the right tool for the job.

The ADVC unit is much better suited for capturing video from sources like VHS. That said, if the DVDs were burned at home by a computer, there is a distinct possibility that the DVDs have degraded due to the passage of time. When I burn, I usually make two copies using two different brands of DVD with one being Tayo/Yuden Gold.

Taiyo Yuden have shut down optical disc productions. These discs are no
longer being made!

I guess I was lucky when I bought my supply. BTW, mine were sold as Tayo Yuden/JVC. Do you have a link to something that says Tayo Yuden production lines are shut down? IOW, could JVC be operating the original production facility?

This is just like when AMPEX stopped making recording tape. There just wasn't a demand anymore. Optical media like DVD's are facing the same fate. Us old folks love to hug our DVD's but young kids are all about downloads directly from the cloud to their devices. The end of the DVD near. :(

That is correct, the end of DVD's is near. That's just the way it is.
How many of us still edit a 720 by 480 SD Project anymore?...
See, we have to roll with the changes.
