High Speed Camera setting and operation
Thanks for the message. It sounds as if you
are performing the correct tasks for the high speed function. The JVC
camera acheives the high speed mode by splitting the full size (60 Hz) image
into either half size (120 Hz) or quarter size (240 Hz). Based on your
description, it sounds as if you recorded a sequence at 240 hz and are getting
the four quarter size pictures. This is perfectly normal when displaying
the video file on anything but the camera itself or within the APAS software.
The Studio DV program in not aware of this function so it will only show the
multiple images per frame.
Once you have the image captured, you will need to
open it in the TRIM module of the APAS. Then select Options, Video to
display the video option menu. You will notice a section titled
"Speed" that can be used for specifying the speed of the captured
file. In your case, you would select 240/200 Hz. You will notice
that this separates and orders the individual images in the correct order so
that only a single image is displayed per frame. When you save the
trimmed file, this information will be saved with the AVI file so that all
other APAS modules will recognize this as a 240 Hz file and open only the
I hope this helps to answer your question.
Please feel free to contact me for any additional information.

Subject: Video Cameras
I've got a question regarding the video
cameras. Everything I've filmed so far has been at at the regular camera
speed which I think is 60Hz. I want to film at fast speeds. When
I'm in Studio DV, capturing a video made at X4 the speed, It brings up the
video with the screen split into 4. The video is correct but there are 4
of them. Is there a setting in Studio DV that can change this? I'm
I doing everything correct?
Any tips are welcome. Thanks
