Hi, i am fairly new at this and am at the tearing hair out stage...from what i have read this is probably normal...please help. I have a Sony dcr-105, Windows 2000, ilink cable & caopture card. I am capturing video in .AVI format using Pixela software (also tried Vegas 4.0) and have the following probs; 1. Using the i-link i get bands of lines whenever the camera pans & the quality is the same as when i would use the USB cable. The red colour balance is also high & pictures look like a bad VCD. 2. When usign the i-link the sound & picture dont match exactly...bit like watching bad sattelite TV. 3. if i insert frames at the top of the movie it is cut off by the TV & they cant be read. 4. i think Vegas is transferring the movie into NTSC format & i cant figure out how to change it to PAL (Pixela is in PAL). could the problem be the software or the capture card? Does Windows Movie Maker run on Win2000? i dont have capture card software so cant change any settings i dont think. Any suggestions are welcome... Thankyou.
