How to Capture Files
If you have some old family videos on pocket-sized Mini DV Tapes, you can use the Capturing process in VideoStudio to get that footage onto your computer.
1.To capture footage recorded from a DV or HDV camcorder, make sure that it is connected to a computer with an installed capture card or built-in FireWire port through a high-speed transfer FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable. In this video tutorial, I will be using a DV camcorder.
2.Next, go to the Capture tab and select Capture Video. Corel VideoStudio Pro will automatically detect and select the DV camcorder connected to the computer.
3.In the Options Panel, select DV from the Format list (this is the native format of Digital Video).
4.At this point, you can use the Navigation Panel to scan your footage and locate the scenes you want to capture.
5.Drag the Shuttle Slider to move forward and backwards through the footage.
6.Click the Capture Video to start the capturing.
7.Click the Stop Capture button to end the capturing. The captured video will be stored in the capture folder set in the Options Panel and can be accessed from the Library.
And that's how you import and capture video footage in Corel VideoStudio Pro. Thank you for watching.
