I know that this edit system is around 15 years old, but does anyone still use DV Raptor? Just had a question about re-installing the application. I have original install disc (v1.1). Would I have to re-install Soft Explode effects and drivers also? NOTE: this is NOT my system.., it is for a friend of mine who refuses to upgrade his system IMHO. Thanks.

Now there's a name I haven't heard in a while...

Most computer systems manufactured within the last 10 years will actually handle DV far faster in software than using a card...and the Raptor wasn't even a powerful card in terms of 15 years ago...

Getting the modern version of Edius would allow use of any Canopus DV files that you have...or I suspect the software codec is still floating around the interweb someplace.

I find it highly unlikely that there are drivers that would install in any modern OS for that card...you'd probably need to install to a 32 bit XP machine at the latest.

(I got rid of my DV Rex a loooong time ago...and I have a Storm card somewhere in mothballs that I haven't used in eons but I just can't bring myself to toss that kind of stuff.)

We still get Canopus files every now and then, and the codec is still available, easily searched.

You sound like my wife/boss. We have a huge pro BetaSP deck that she wouldn't let me unload for years. Now it's a boat anchor. The shipping would far exceed any $$$ I could make from it.

I didn't say I couldn't bring myself to sell things...I've done that.

When the industry has moved on and the stuff isn't even worth anything to sell, I have a hard time throwing it out.

Canopus DV cards (or any DV cards) have been redundant for a decade...so they really aren't worth anything to anyone not running a 15 year old computer (and editing mediocre quality standard definition).

I suppose it's nostalgia. In the back of my mind I keep thinking a museum curator will be calling me up one day, and they'll ask me for some of my old stuff for a diorama with life-sized cavemen trying to green screen some 4:1:1 footage...

Well, my "colleague" is reluctant to upgrade or learn newer technologies. The problem with XP and Raptor is the fact that when trying to output an MPEG-2 file, the PC locks up totally. Same happens with other video applications. Maybe he's missing a certain CODEC, .inf file, or .dll file. - I dunno. he is not in the Internet so he cannot get fixes from way back when.

How do I locate the installed video CODEC's in WinXP?
