[SOLVED] video camera crash



  • hi there

    I have a canon legria hv40 that I have been using through firewire as a Live Capture for my projects for some years. I dont remember exactly how it was listed in the Live Capture devices... 

    The thing is that now I am trying to use it back with isadora (2.6.1) and its driver changed. No idea why, but now I see it as "legria hv40", and when I select it, izzy crashes.

    I managed to unistall this driver and install one that is called "AV/C Tape Device". When I select it in Isadora, the software crashes.


    I remember very well that neither of these drivers was the one I was using when everything was running correctly. 

    Help? Please? I need to have the system running for a show in few hours...



  • little update on the fragility of the system. 

    when I clic on the search field of isadora, the software crashes...

    I am using this computer: i5 M520 @ 2.40GHz / 4Gb Ram / Win 7

    Hi. Sorry that I can't really help with this. We do recommend windows 10 as a minimum requirement but I know this wont help you right now. 



  • I have already used isadora with this camera on windows 7 and didnt have this problem...

    Something must have changed somewhere along the line. 



  • got it! found it!


    There are some settings that changed in the camera itself. Apparently when attempting to use HDV it tries to work through "legria hv40" drivers, and this crashes isadora. I changed it back to DV and I can see it again as "Microsoft DV Camera and VCR", and this works in isadora

    :)
