Just a couple of questions on completing my task of transferring mini DV to the SX DAW.
First of, the transfer to SX (via my DV Cam and firewire) was super easy. MS’s Wizard walks you through each step and you can preview what sections of film you want to load into your project folder.
This all went very smooth and importing the video into SX went well (onto a Video track). When importing into SX, a dialog checkbox allows the you to ‘extract audio’ from this video import. There is where I am having a problem. I get the video just fine (with thumbnails) and it plays back beautifully (in a smaller window or even full screen – with lesser playback quality), but I get a message about the audio that says:
“These audio streams could not be imported: Audio stream 1 of file (and then it list the location of the video file.)”
I am using Direct Show video player and I have made sure that the “extract audio” box is checked when importing.
I am sure that it is something small. I would sure appreciate some guidance.
PS: As this scoring to pictures is new to me, could someone give me a short tutorial on what sample rates I need to set on my DAW and 2 giga puters. Right now I am running everything at 44.1Khz, but I think I read somewhere else here about Film clips will be provided in 48 Khz. Can I continue to work in 44 K and then master mix everything in 48K when I hand back over to the Director or will I need to set this up to 48K to be ‘in sync’ with his mini DV’s supplied to me??
Again – many thanks for any help. Sorry, with what must be \'basic\' questioning to many here.
