I downloaded Chromanator Demo to try out but every time I load an AVI from my miniDV camcorder it crashes. I have to convert the file to a regular avi before I can use it in Chromanator. What gives? I thought it was made for miniDV specifically. frown

It really depends on what program you're trying to capture it to your computer with. Different programs use different filetypes and codecs.

What program are you capturing with?

I use Adobe Premiere. Just a plain DV import.

It works with my Premiere 6.0. What version do you have?
