video trouble

Can anyone please help. We have put in a firewire and connected Ok to camcorder and the film comes through but is not very good definition and when enlarged to full screen goes out of focus and all fuzzy. Thanks

Hi Ninky4, What software are you using?. Some editing software gives a low res picture so that the CPU can use most of its power for the editing process to enable 25 frames per sec etc, for the final video
Video also requires powerful CPU & plenty of Ram.

Hi Ninky4, I use Ulead video studio 6 with Athlon 2600 & 256Mb DDR ram Win XP with no problem.
The preview screen quality is not good as its states in the instructions. Is it the same when you use High Quality playback as Instant preview?. Have you saved to DVD or CDR as when it is renderd it should be much better.
Make sure the HDD has been defragmented, & no other programmes running in the background.
Are you selecting the correct video format etc, for DV video.
