I shot some footage on a trip this week using the HDV setting on my Sony HDR-HC9. Today I connected the camera via firewire, opened Vegas capture, selected HDV/SDI. At first, the device setting was telling me that the firewire choice was not detected. None of the camera functions were highlighted in Vegas. I checked the "allow outside programs" box under preferences. But I still can't get it to function like the ease of capturing SD. I was finally able to get the image to show up in a very squashed preview window while playing the tape in the camera... but still no functions available in Vegas capture utility. The HDV capture screen is different than the SD capture page. I've heard of people using HDV Split... but where can I find a trustworthy free download? I don't trust a lot of those free download pages.
