Hi,
I am trying to Batch Capture in PowerDirector 9 but the buttons to do this are greyed out. Has anybody else experienced this problem? Using a Canon HV20 camcorder connected to PC via Firewire. I can capture individial scenes one at a time but can't seem to do the entire tape at once. Has anybody else run into this?
Thanks!
Chris

For what it is worth.....I'm a newbie to PD9 as well but do have a HV20 (I came from Video Studio) though can not comment on using PD9 to capture as I've moved to a new Cam. FYI - I was using the free HDVSplit for capturing HDV as it splits by Date/Time on HDV material in one pass to individual M2T clips as Video Studio could not split by Time/Date stamp with HDV.

Hi - thanks for the tip. I tried HDVSplit and it seems to work better but occasionally the capture will stop with an error message "Capture Stopped. No more data from camcorder". Not sure what is going on but this is really becoming challenging. Does anybody else show the batch capture buttons grayed out in PowerDirector9 when trying to capture from HDV?
Thanks!

On HDVSplit, that msg means that you have a blank spot on that part of the tape where nothing was recorded (so it thinks that it is the end of where you recorded to) - if you press the record button again it will start looking for the "start" again and should continue.
