Newbie jerky DV question

Discussion in 'Video Cameras' started by P and H Macguire, Sep 7, 2003.



  1. "in the face uncontroversial evidence" ? Should that perhaps be
    "incontrovertible" ?

    Yes. But shouldn't you be having a look at RFC1855?

    If it is in deed V 2.0.950.120 it is very old and you may do better by
    updating the VIA drivers. The current version is V4.49 but VIA themselves
    recommend V4.35 for Win98 .

    The link to the downloads is http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=300 the link to
    the 4.35 version is in the text just below the introductory text. It is
    simple to install and it process will only install what is required by your
    system. If I remember correctly if you install in TURBO mode the DMA will be
    set for any hard drive that supports DMA, but you should be able to confirm
    this by checking the primary and secondary IDE properties (as explained
    earlier)where DMA can be turn on or off to your preference, you may also
    need to turn on the DMA for your CD again.

    Yes you do, remember I'm not the one saying that you need a separate HD, I'm
    just passing on what accredited experts say, you are the one who needs to do
    the proving - something you refuse to do.
    Pot Kettle Black !
    IYO, many experts say otherwise.
    You want to ignore me (and hope that I will ignore you in return) because
    you know that I know you are not the expert you try and make yourself out to
    be.

    People will conclude what they want from this exchange, but IMO your
    unwillingness to submit your 'fresh ideas' for publication outside this
    group or your own web pages leaves one wondering why you will not do so....

    Try not using Image Stabiliser. It may be confusing the beginning of
    each pan with a shake. You might not notice this on the camera's
    small screen.

    We're somewhat off-message here.

    He didn't complain of video glitches. He said his panning shots
    jerked. Let's see what happens if he turns the stabiliser function
    in his camera off.

    Then please tell is what the original (footage) is and how that plays OK but
    not the edited footage ?!

    Here it is:

    I have managed to edit a video and Produce it, but when I Output it
    and play it through TV, panning shots appear jerky, which they don't
    on the original.
    It's not a very precise question. But I can read that as "the
    jerkiness is only apparent when watching on TV".

    I don't recall video glitching described as "jerky" very often. And
    why only in panning shots?

    You've got to read between the lines with inexperienced users :)

    Even Pat Macguire. the original questioner, has taken his eye off the
    ball and joined in our favourite sport of trying to catch each other
    out in small inaccuracies :)

    Lets hear from Pat. Are we talking dropped frames (which would be
    very unlikely to ONLY occur in panned shots)? Or could it be the
    stabiliser function?
