I have just bought a TBC (Av tools CTB 530-TR) .
I need to capture (digitize) for editing 100 old S-VHS tapes with timing errors, but I am newby using a TBC. Until now I have always work with Betacam or digital video sources.
I have connected the TBC between my S-VHS player and the capture workstation, but the vertical lines continue to look a little wavy.
Please, has the TBC its own internal sync generator, or it is always neccesary to connect an external sync source (genlock)?
Can I do anything in order to fix this "wavy" vertical lines? Maybe adjusting horizontal or vertical positioning with Proc Amp controls?
Excuse me for my silly questions. I am newbye, but it is an important work for me.
Thanks in advance.
just to be clear, lots of people say Time Base Corrector (TBC) when they REALLY mean a proc-amp. This mixup happens because a lot of the devices combined tthe two functions in one box, but I don't think I ever messed with time base more than one percent of the time while using our Microtime, but I played the proc amp controls like they were an xbox.:-)
