Lack of Vegas (Sonic Foundry Support for Professional DV Decks

Sonic Foundry bills "Vegas Video" as a professional
solution for editing. I have had Vegas Video since it first
came out and it still does not support Professional DV
Decks, not even the lower end ones like the Sony DSR 30
DVCAM and the Sony DHR1000 Mini DV. They are all 1394
complient. Pinnacle supports them, even the bottom of the
line Studio DV.
Sonic Foundry...what gives, don't blaim it on Microsoft.
Are you going to step up and play with the big boys or are
you going to keep playing with "CamCorders"?

Hi David,

Are you using our Video Capture application? Starting with version
2.0a, we put in support for previewing and capturing from, and
previewing and printing back to, Transcoder boxes and DV decks. I've
testing this with our own Sony DSR 30 DV deck and Sony DVMC-DA1
transcoder. We're currently working on providing transport support
for the DV decks since some of them don't fully/correctly respond to
device status commands. In addition, with 2.0b of Video Capture,
we've put in a General Preference to enable/disable DV device control
in case the device doesn't correctly let us know if it supports
device control. So, if you can't preview or capture from, or can't
preview or print back to, the deck, try disabling DV device control.
An upcoming version of Video Capture will address the deck
communication shortcomings and provide transport control.

One more thing, you may run into some troubles using these types of
devices, if you've installed DX8 since MS changed how certain devices
are identified. Again, try disabling DV device control via the
General Preferences.

Thanks!
