Conecting a video camera to computor.

  sixfoot 16:54 01 Feb 2003

I am trying to work with a Panasonic NV DS 27
on my computor (conected via a serial port),the software that came with the camera works, but just captures stills, how can I get the camera to work with windows movie maker and Roxio videowave.
When I try to use either of these aplications,
they can not comunicate with the camera. HELP!

Have you had a look at their websites to see if they support your camera.

Or have you got the latest drivers from the Panasonic web site.

A video camera and a serial port will probably be unbearably slow.

You really need a TV card

Spruce, there is no software available at the Panasonic website (yet) they say software downloads coming soon!

An alternative to a TV card is the Pinnacle Linx input cable.

click here this works very well and is only £39 at dabs. It has been upgraded to to include a svhs connection as well.

It comes with Pinnacle Studio v8 LE. This make the capture of video from an analogue source like a video recorder very easy.

Like spruce says using a serial connection to download video would be incredibly slow if not impossibly so.

I thought it was neccessary to install a capture card to in order to do what you are requiring to do.
