Canopus ProCoder - Won't finish encoding

    I'm trying to convert a PAL .avi to an NTSC .avi through Canopus
    ProCoder. The PAL .avi was recorded from a Sony Handycam through a
    Dazzle Hollywood Bridge which seems to work fine. ProCoder freezes at
    ~30 seconds when encoding on every .avi I've tried, and never
    completes the conversion. I've tried encoding with Canopus DV AVI1,
    Canopus DV AVI2 and Microsoft DV, but keep getting the same result.
    Any suggestions?

  2. Matt,
    I think you should try the Canopus forum where there is a thread for every
    product Canopus has.

  3. Perhaps, your avi format is not the good one. You can dowload on the
    Canopus site, the Canopus DV converter program which convert your avi
    file in an a correct avi file for Canopus procoder.

    This was indeed the fix. Adding the step of converting my original
    ..avi with the DV Converter from Canopus resolved the problem. Thanks
    for the tip!!!

  5. Actually the Canopus DV File Converter is for conversion of Type 1 to Type 2
    files and vice versa, not for standards conversion. At one time Canopus did
    offer a tool for conversion of PAL to NTSC and vice versa, but that tool was
    for use with native Canopus files only.

  6. Well, proven wrong there wasn't I!! Evidently they merged the two programs -
    good deal for those needing it. I certainly learned a new tip/trick. Thank
