Need help with capturing some video

okay, so back in june I video taped Ween with my old jvc camera. I recorded the show in 4:3 cinematic mode aka fake 16:9. I transfered the first tape a few weeks later using sonicmydvd with no trouble, but for some reason or another I never did transfer the rest.

since then I've got a new camera, and sony vegas 8.0. the new camera films in 16:9. I've filmed & transfered a couple shows with the new camera, and everything is fine.

well, a couple weeks ago I decided to transfer the rest of the Ween show. when I did I used the camera it was filmed on & vegas, but for some reason instead of capturing in 4:3 cinematic it was capturing it in 16:9, and squished the video by adding extra black bars.

I've tried capturing these tapes with 3 different programs & both my old and new cameras. no matter what I try it keeps trying to do it in 16:9.

if any one has any suggestions on how I can get these to capture right please let me know.

Re: Need help with capturing some video

typically "cinema" mode refers to the frame rate [simulating 24p] and not frame size...without knowing your camera model, i'm assuming that its widescreen mode is actually stretching the image to achieve "16:9"...try setting Vegas to capture the image as 16:9 Anamorphic and see if that doesn't help

I'm not finding an option in vegas that allows me to capture in anamorphic.

Re: Need help with capturing some video

i've never used Vegas, so i can't help you with specifics with that prog unfortunately...hopefully one of the Vegas heads will pop in today and be able to help you a bit more, i'm assuming it has numerous log&capture settings and you'll be able to find the right one to keep the proper pic ratio

oh & i would recommend using the camera it was recorded on for the transfer, less issues when it comes to situations like this

Not sure which one to tell you to use, but
File > Properties > Video > Template Drop down box.

There are a couple of 24P options there.

Re: Need help with capturing some video

when you set up to capture 24p/HD there's an option you MUST select HD capture for those options to show up then capture the hd files and convert as needed enjoy and good luck.

Re: Need help with capturing some video

okay, I think you're misunderstanding me. it has nothing do with framerate or hd. it's frame size. the video is in 4:3, but I had it set to cinema mode which crops the video by adding blacking bars to make it look like 16:9, and when I try to capture now, it thinks it's actual 16:9, and is squishing the video by adding extra black bars. I didn't have any problems transfering before I bought a camera that is actual 16:9. thanks anyways though, and I'll keep trying.
