Gotta major problem ya all.

I just finished editing a piece of footage in premiere that took 3 weeks to complete. When i rendered the uncompressed edited footage and transfered it back to the camera via firewire DV in the footage still shakes and it takes the shine away from all my hard work coz the finished result looks shite. Its a problem that I have had for some time now and cant seem to resolve it. I think the problem lies with the crap firewire capture card that ive got. Its not a fields problem i.e lower field first/ upper field first etc coz i rendered footage with all the possible combinations and it makes no difference.

Anways I decided to uninstall premiere with the intention of reinstalling it however after taking it of my system i found to my horror that both my cd-rom/cdrw/dvd-rom drives have all been disabled, i.e they dont show up under "my computer" and cant acess any cd/dvd-rom i put in. I cant even say that I will reinstall windows because of the reasons stated. Got windows 2000 professional running on a dual pentium III PC. Under device status it says
"Your registry might be corrupted. (Code 19)".
How can this be rectified?

Wow. That doesn't sound good redface I'm going out on a limb here, but couldn't you go into Device Manager and 'turn on' your drives? Try that, maybe that'll work crazy

I think the footage that you've sent back to your vidcam shakes not because of a field-order issue but because your frames are uncompressed. You could try compressing the footage using a DV codec - that should do the trick.

Thats an interesting commet. Perhaps i have misunderstood what u are saying but I dont want the footage to be compressed because i want the quality to be 100% And anyways i thought when u render the edited footage in the timeline that goes thru some sorta dv compression???


About the registry issue, quite frankly all the comments ive heard regarding this are so rubbish that i feel embarrased for the people who wrote them. Damn if u cant contribute in a quality way then dont post anything at all. twisted

Please be careful about what you say. I mean, I think you should be lucky that you are getting help of any kind. The people here are very kind and very generous, and they were trying to help in any way they can. It's hard enough to give computer advice over the net, since no two computers are alike. Each has its own quirks and pops, and I am sure that yours is no different. So I repeat your own quote to you...

Damn if u cant contribute in a quality way then dont post anything at all.
If you can't accept help, or attempted help as it comes, then why did you bother? Honestly, I found it very rude, even though I myself had not posted anything.

This has got to be one of the friendliest, and most helpful communities on the Internet. Give it time, and perhaps you'll get an answer that works. Or, call the helpline for Windows. If all else fails, take the computer to a repair center. Sorry if our honest attempts at helping are not up to par. evil

Dirtygeeza, I think you're right. Assuming that you selected a DV option for your Premiere project, the footage on your timeline should be compressed (albeit very lightly, hence the negligible quality loss). If your timeline plays back smoothly in Premiere but somehow appears shaky on your vidcam, then you may indeed have a problem with field-order.

Please be careful about what you say.
Lets get a few things straight.
First off I meant every word of what I just said. There are too many people in here that are or have been guilty of posting utter garbage, not directly relating to my post specifically but in general. Reasons for doing this i suspect is to boost their tally of posts. When u can be bothered to find the time, search some of the threads and reply posts in this forum and the evidence is there to be seen. Its all about quality not quantity.

I found it very rude, even though I myself had not posted anything.
I dont give a rats ass of what u thought of my post. About quote: "I found it very rude" like a big girl. Remember the old saying...
If the coat fits bloody wear it. From the sounds of things its fitted u nicely so thats your problem. Same goes for u av11d

This has got to be one of the friendliest, and most helpful communities on the Internet.
U dont have to tell me how fantastic and friendly this community is. I BLOODY WELL KNOW. Its a pretty obvious fact. The fast majority of people in this community are intellects with creative and technical skills who posses a great deal of knowledge, experience and expertise in their respective fields, however theres just a small minority who are responsible for posting absolute TRASH and I will expose these people if they reply to my posts posting absolute trash.

If all else fails, take the computer to a repair center
Prime example of ABSOLUTE TRASH

I am not desperate for answers regarding my registry problem because I have already booked in my PC for repairs this Tuesday cum in and im confident that it will be repaired. However i thought I'd post the registry thread as a means of sharing and resolving the problem as a community which in turn will be beneficial to everyone.

*Sigh* If you think it's garbage, then so be it. I don't have a problem with it. All I am saying is that attacking these people for their "garbage posts" is ridiculous and will only hurt you in the future. If you want help, then don't shoot down a person's honest attempt at help. Both Av11d's and Hajiku_Flip's posts were completely valid. I don't see any garbage, I see people doing what they can do to help you. That's all. As for my Prime example of ABSOLUTE TRASH, I am glad you are getting your computer repaired. I hope to see some work coming out of it, with which we can all view and share as a community. After all, your post, and future contibutions have the potential to become "a means of sharing and resolving the problem as a community which in turn will be beneficial to everyone." That is, as long as the sharing is permitted openly. mad

I tried to help... I didn't just post it to get my post count up: I had the same exact problem with the drives not showing up on my Windows 2000 machine. I restarted it and they showed up... I was just sharing my expierence.

I'm with Mr Geeza here.

Looking through this thread, most of the replies were completely devoid
of any useful help. They were just replies for the sake of it. The
"turning on the hard drives" suggestion referred to the DMA switch.
But didn't give enough information to make it clear what it was about
unless you already knew all about that. Fun.

And then folk have a go at him for not being grateful when given
duff advice. Surely he's the only one that can judge whether his
question's been answered. Ho ho ho.

A lot of people post here because they have too much free time.
Not out of any desire to help or any extensive knowledge base.

Cripes, I'm guilty of that myself this week. Dull job with excellent
internet access. So I've posted ten times as much as usual. So even
my signal to noise ratio has changed.

On the whole site this week, I've read two posts that I got any new
information out of. And those were from Cypher and Flip. Amazing.
That's two posts out of several hundred. Perhaps we should start a
league table...

This is obviously a cry for some sort of joke.


now, as for something that nitro said:

nitroviper007 wrote:

I think ive been on the forums here long enough to say that if something isn't really appropriate, it would be deleted VERY quickly.

And seeing as av11d replyed a few times, and is also a moderator who could easily close/delete/edit posts, has done nothing, doesn't that show that what dirtygeeza said wasn't that extremely bad?

I'm not saying that what dirtygeeza said was right, but hey, we all have our good days and our bad days, right? That maybe have been a bad day for him which got worse, and unfortunately transfered into his post.



As for the help, dirtygeeza: i can support av11d, because I did have that problem too, and the same way it was fixed. So what if maybe turning off your computer would logically be the first thing that woudl come to mind, maybe other people would like to know this little bit of information for the future so that they don't worry or anything.

Update

Right u guys. Basically the windows registry problem that i had initially took a turn for the worst and managed to destroy my primary hard disk totally. i think it was probably a malicious virus. Furthermore the repairs took 2 weeks rather 2 days... got da beast back late saturday with a new primary 40gig harddisk replacing the old 20. so i guess im happy!

ah geez… of course you cannot export uncommpressed dv video through a firewire card simply not fast enough, you stupid or something you need a uncompressed video card to do that unfortunatly these tend to go at around 10,000 and putting uncompressed dv through a codec hardly reduces the quality actually is doesn't at all just makes several minor gliches sometimes show up like vertical streaks and the stairway effect show up these can be avoided very easily so i do not see the point in using cinéwave uncompressed for anything exept large screen (ie. 10m or more)

hey there phage,

those comments were very interesting. U might be right but i just wanna clarify a couple of things b4 we go any further. Unless ive totally misunderstood what u just said i did not say anything about using cinewave. I use premiere 6.0 for capturing and editing and export the edited uncompressed dv footage back to the mx300 dv in via firewire for the sole purpose of transfer to vhs.

I not saying u are wrong but if my firewire card and hard disk are fast enough to capture raw footage dv compressed without dropping not one single, then i dont see how the reverse should have any effect.

I know about the cards u are talking about but thats not what im talking about. Those cards u mentioned are used in major broadcast studios/editing suites and capture tru uncompressed footage which aint dv, coz they capture in excess of 40 mb a sec. dv is at a fixed rate of something like 3.65mb a sec... at least thats what i get when i capture. Their equivalent in the high end consumer/prosumer market are the likes of semi pro firewire cards like the dv500 and the rt 2500 from pinnacle and matrox which are capable of capturing dv compressed footage and encoding/decoding footage as dv/mpeg2, as well as being equipped with s-video/composite ins and outs as a means of plugging an external tv monitor during editing as well as exportng uncompressed edited footage straight to a vcr, which would eliminate the need of output via firewire to the cam. Im only doin this coz i cant afford the aforementioned semi pro cards at the mo...

wanna know your views on this? keep them cuming coz im still being haunted by the shakiness. Its a real pain, and i very much doubt if it is a field order problem coz i tried rendering as lower/upper fields first/reversed fields and even transfered footage to after fx to seperate fields and then render but nothing has worked.

I'm not sure why everyone decided to attack me for suggesting he goes into his Device Manager and turns on, or enables, his drives. If you go into DM, you can plainly see that you can disable your drives, so I didn't know if maybe he did that. We now know it was a virus, and fortunatly his computer was obliterated.

im sorta hazy on the "shakyness" is that like the full frame is bouncing up and down or jerkiness of low frame rates if it is low frame rates you might have imported or exported movie at wrong frame rates from alam?

Can you give me a complete description of you setup that you used to create this video (ie. programs systems hardware camera or cameras) i have made numerous video with a old mac setup with matrox rt mac card and exported through it via breakout box. What special effects are you using that need to be rendered when you play the video on you computer after it is rendered how does it look on you preview monitor, on your desktop if it looks fine on your desktop your hardware is probably dysfunctional.

Oh ya and when you said you where exporting uncompressed i assumed you already had it uncompressed on you computer and used one of those expensive video card to do it (seems ridiculus unless you were making big time movies but hey you never know) what you really doing your not exporting uncompressed your exporting it you can't really export to a vhs played compressed unless you changed the format of the video entirely.

Here it is....

dual pIII 1.0gig
1gig ram
7200 capture drive
panasonic mx300 dv cam
cheap firewire card

As u can see the actual pc hardware is fairly powerful, however the only thing that flaws it is the firewire card (i think). So i have had to use certain unorthodox measures to get the most out. During editing in premiere i connect the cam via firewire, and then run the composite cables from the cam to the telly in for monitoring. Its a cheap and yet complicated setup but hope u have understood it. When i run the footage via the timeline and watch it on the telly it shakes. I cant really describe this but it is slightly similar to a footage being jerky. (dont shake as in up and down). It's a real mistery to me. And oh yeah, on the PC monitor it looks absolutely fab, clean clear, crisp and full of color. and plays 100% perfectly.

I did not understand your comments about the VHS format. I do no special effects as such but if transitions/video filters/animated text etc are applied to a footage in premiere then it needs to be rendered. As i said b4, the only reason why i have this messed up setup is to output finished edited projects onto VHS tape via the cam.

when you say the telly do you mean after it is exported in that case it is your hardware if the telly is your preview monitor it is also probably what ever hardware you used to connect your preview monitor.

So your system is dropping frames not onscreen but on the external monitor and on DV tape after exporting? Is that right? Jerky motion?

If so, that is very weird. The fact that it imports fine (onscreen playback is ok) but exports badly is quite unusual.

I think that the fact that the onscreen playback is faultless is the biggest clue. This suggests that everything up until output is okay. This makes me think the problem is either with your firewire card's drivers (prob not the card itself) or the camera. Have you tried a different cam?

If it is not that simple, then it may well be FAR more complex such as some arcane hardware conflict. You don't have a PC assembled by Tiny, do you?

In any event I would strongly suggest that you contact a UK company called Creative Video. They are very friendly and will bend over backward to help you out - even if you are not buying anything. I see you are from the Green and Pleasant Land so call them on: 0845 345 3252. (its only a local charge!)

If anyone else wants to check 'em out got to: www.creativevideo.co.uk

But be polite and nice to them, they will be helping you for free and out of a desire to help people who are into what they are into (sound familiar). If you are half as rude to them as you have been to others on this string they will quite rightly tell you where to stick your head.

I hope this has been of some help. Let us know how it goes. Good luck. smile

Thats precisely whats happening spotless. I havent tried a different cam as of yet, but i very much doubt if its my mx300 but its a possibility. Gotta feeling that its the firewire card. And No my PC wasnt bought from Tiny.

Anyways Thanks heaps for the info u have posted. I will check them out as soon as i can.

PS: Believe it or not, I aint a rude person at all. Far from that. I just have a low threshold for stupidity. And for the record, I very much appreciate alot of peeps in here that have contributed to my thread offering some sorta solution in general but more specifically peeps that contribute good quality info on a wide variety of subjects in here. Peeps like CodaBar, Neo, Cypher and yourself to mention a few. Keep up the good work ya all.

Fair enough.

Thinking about it, I'd recomend you form your enquiry to Creative Video as a request about a replacement DV card. If you may have to buy something from them (and you may), thats an extra incentive form them to take an interest in your prob and attempt to get to the heart of the fault. Can't hurt anyway.
