  1. I have a Canon Vixia HV 30 which I was previously able to connect to my PC when I had Windows 7. Now that I have upgraded to 10, the Windows Movie Maker is gone, so I tried installing some of the apps which said they made DVDs, but none of then have the ability to capture from firewire. I did some searching and tried WinDV and DVCapture, but neither of them worked. The camera shows up in the device manager under the 'sound, video and game controllers' and it says that the driver is the latest and greatest.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    "Firewire" is a data transfer.....not real-time capturing.

  3. Are you trying to capture DV or HDV from that camera?

    WinDV should work fine for DV capture. Try HDVsplit for HDV.

    Make sure the camera is properly set manually to either DV or HDV before plugging it in to the computer.

    I use Adobe Premiere Elements 10 video editing software. I can capture video thru by DV camera using a firewire and editing clips quickly. My students have only about 40 minutes to record the school news, edit, use chroma key, & burn DVD to show to the entire school each day. My problem is that the new Adobe Premiere Elements doesn't have the screen capture thru firewire on the new versions. Is there anyone can tell me a comparable software to use that works like Adobe Premiere Elements 10. I'm also upgrade to a Windows 10 desktop.

    WinDV is the ancient but usual recommendation.

    vegas pro 16 definitely has tape capture and print back to tape. vegas movie studio lists print to tape so i'd assume it has tape capture also. both the pro and studio versions offer a free trial so you can check if you wish.
