So I can't find anyone else having this problem never mind an answer to solve it.
I'm capturing a lot of mini dv tapes to CS5 Premier. I bought myself a 2012 imac running the appropriate OS (10.6.8). Mostly, everything has been stable and a pleasure to work through (about 180 hours so far) but occasionally it captures at 787 x 576 instead of 720 x 576. With no obvious cause.
I could capture 5 tapes in row, all shot on the same day, same camera, 4 will capture fine and one will be wrong. I'll go back and capture the tape again and sometimes it will be fine, others I'll have to try repeatedly or capture in several sections.
I realise I could just convert the aspect ratio in Premier and export it but I'd rather it just worked properly if possible. Any ideas?
I've been working around it for a while now but I'm interested in what could be causing it.
Thanks for your time
