Capture Video horizontal lines
on Dec 30, 2003 at 3:20:13 am

Hi,
I have just bought Vegas 4, to capture and edit DV from my JVC camera.
Problem is when I capture the DV via firewire, I now have video with small horizontal lines appearing on the edges of figures moving and on stationary objects. (I am using PAL).
I had used PowerDirector 1 previously and I didnt have this problem with the captured video. Scince the new software I had reformatted my XP and reinstalled everything. I resorted to PowerDirector and it's doing the same, even with the original captured video (mpeg2). I have looked at the help online with V4 but I cant find where this problem comes from. I capture using PAL standard format.
Any help will be fantastic.
cheers
George

Sounds like a field order problem. I'm not familiar with Vegas, but look for the field order setting, change it, and do another capture.

Thanks John for the reply. I will give that a go in a fewe days (away on holidays) and reply back how it went. Certainly a concern.
All I have to do now is find the 'field' setting.
Being a dummy, what does the setting control?
cheers
Happy New Year

Standard video is interleaved, so each frame is composed of two fields, one with the odd-numbered lines and the other with the even-numbered lines. If you capture them out of order for your source video, you get a severe venetian blind effect.

Yes I looked into that and your other suugestions but it did not make any difference unfortunately.
I resorted to uninstalling all/any graphics programs and cleaqned up the hard drive, defregged and reinstalled everything except the Media Player 9 upgrade. This seemed to have done the trick. No more lines on the edges and the playback quality is excellant.
I suspect it may have been media player that was at fault (read about some probs in PC mags)but I am not sure. I am not game to reinstall it to find out!
Thanks heaps
