When replaying video captured from my DV (MiniDV or Digital 8MM) camcorder using the IEEE 1394 (Firewire, i.LINK) connection, I see two distinct images blended together when the video is paused. This may also cause a stuttering effect when the video is played in slow motion.
NOTE: This applies ONLY to IEEE 1394 connected DV devices. Users capturing video with a Belkin VideoBus, ATi All in Wonder card, or other video capture device using analog video connections may be experiencing a different problem.
If you have progressive scan mode enabled on the camera, you may see this effect. V1 expects standard interlaced video at 60 fields per second, using progressive scan sends only full frame video at 30 frames per second. If you are using progressive scan, please disable it on your camera when sending video to the V1 software.
This can also happen if you have another DV software program installed which installs its own DV codec. First, update your V1 software to the newest release using the product update page linked below, then check the System Info window found in the options menu to verify that you have the correct video codecs installed.
V1 Software Update Center: http://www.v1golf.com/support_updatecenter.asp
Be sure to save the update file to disk in case you ever need to install it again.
System Info page- required codecs:
DV: Main Concept DV codec
MJPG: MJPG Main Concept Video 3.00
MP42: Microsoft MPEG-4 (v2 or v3)
If any of these codecs are missing or different, first try reinstalling the V1 software (V1 Home: Check the Video Compression Codecs box during installation). If the codecs are not replaced by the software, you may need to manually remove them to allow V1 to install properly.
The DV Soft and [dvsd] codecs installed by other video capture programs have been known to cause this behavior, and should be manually removed.
