Capture DV to File
This section describes how to capture digital video (DV) from a DV camera or from a VTR tape.
- Create an instance of the MSDV Driver filter. For more information, see Selecting a Capture Device.
- Initialize the Capture Graph Builder, as described in About the Capture Graph Builder.
- Build the capture graph, depending on the target file type:
- Run the graph.
Capturing from a VTR tape works just like capturing live video from the camera, except that you must play the tape, as described in Controlling a DV Camcorder. To avoid losing any frames, run the graph first, and then play the tape. When you are done transmitting, stop the tape first and then stop the graph.
