Previewed and captured video is distorted
The video in the preview monitor and the captured video appear distorted. This can occur if the tape in your DV camera contains video that switches between the PAL and NTSC video formats. When the video format switches, the video preview and captured video appear distorted.
To fix this issue, do the following:
- Start the Video Capture Wizard and capture the video in the tape up to the point where the video becomes distorted.
- Stop capturing in the Video Capture Wizard and complete the wizard. The content on the video tape captured up to that point will appear in the captured video file.
- Using the controls on the DV camera, cue the tape to the point where the video becomes distorted, and then stop the camera. This should be the approximate point where the video switches from one video format (PAL or NTSC) to the other on the tape.
- Start and continue the Video Capture Wizard, and then capture the remaining video on the tape.
- Complete the wizard.
