I am begging for help!!

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Rip Munsterman, Jul 28, 2003.

  1. I have spent several weeks creating tutorial videos for a web application I
    built for work. I have an ATI 9700 all in wonder pro. I connected my
    TV-Out to an S-VHS VCP to record my desktop movements. If I play the video
    through the TV, everything looks great. When I try to caputure the video
    through my 9700 it is poor quailty, it's flickering and there is a large
    black border around it. It shows up the same way if I use Pinnacle Studio 8
    or Windows Media Encoder. I thought it might be something to do with the
    S-VHS, so I recorded the video to my camcorder using an S-Video cable. The
    video looked great throught the LCD, and plays back great on the TV, but
    when I tried to capture the video to the computer, it shows up the same way
    as before. I then thought it could be a problem with the card's settings,
    so I played back video that I actually recorded using the camcorder and it
    shows up great in Pinnacle Studio. As soon as it gets to the recorded
    segment of my desktop, it goes back to looking like crap...

    Anyone have any suggestions? I will go nuts if all my work over the last 3
    or 4 weeks will all be for nothing!

    Thanks to anyone who replies in advance!

    This may be a macrovision problem, ATI cards can be oversensitive to this &
    wrongly identify video feeds as being copy protected when they are not.

    It's a bit pricey but the following kit may help
