"Ok I got the Pinnacle Video Creator Ultimate the other day and the quality is better. However if using Studio's Import feature I must leave the screen on (or turn it off and somehow stop the video blindly and let it save) something that is impractical for an at least 2 hour video. I've come close to getting it while the screen was off but the files keep corrupting on me. Whenever I try to use the other Program AMCap I get the following error.
"Error During Capture: Error Code=00000000"
After that it refuses to do anything unless I take the usb out without going to safely remove (the problem with this is it seems to always cause a BSOD shortly afterwards).
I have ensured that the proper driver is installed by going to pinnacles site but the I cannot seem to get around this error.
Does anyone know if there are other programs that work with Dazzle?
Also sdoes anyone know of a feature in Pinnacle Studio's Import feature to end the recording at a set number of seconds? AMCap has this feature but I am unable to use AMCap due to the aforementioned error."
Anyone tried to transfer, edit, drop to disc one of these cameras before? The Pinnacle Studios Import feature seems to work but I'd need to leave my desktop monitor on for the full two hours as if I turn the monitor off it starts dropping frames (I have no clue why though). Another reason I need to get this done soon is due to the fact the recorder is the only video8 player in the house and it no longer records.
I've considered taking them to a pro but in order to get the actual digital files (instead of just DVD's of the tapes) it was going to cost an astronomical number. And I WON'T edit from DVD once it's been digitized as that will lose even more quality (I encode and edit videos and am very picky about how they look)
