Hi guys i got a Uni project due and im doing the last bits of piece to camera i saw your software for recording straight from webcam to converted avi . Perfect. Thank you, but it doesnt seem to be working for me.

I film the piece to webcam press record and it saves but when i try to play the file ether in windows or quicktime i get an error or if i try to convert it in the quick media software i get ERROR everytime.

I read your thread and when i hit the blue information button nothing happens all i can get you is this..

General

CompleteName : C:\Users\Susie\Desktop\TEST2.avi

FileSize/String : 10.0 MiB

Bascially i just want to get what i filmed to the webcam as a file i can import into premiere pro for editing.

Im sorry i couldnt get the information i did press the i loads of times no info would come up.

Thank in advance for help :)

Hello and welcome to our forum,

We are going to try to help you step by step .


Step 1: Click on Webcam icon
Step 2 : Select the appropriate driver if not sure use microsoft wdm capture ( number 1 combo box on the interface)

step 3) Click on the green button on the left of webcam settings ( becomes red )
Step 4) Clcik again on it it becomes green and your video image appears in the player
Step 5) select output directory
Step 6) Start recording then stop a window opens type in the name of the file you want and save
Step 7) If you want to preview the file clcik on icon preview and select the file you just saved. Hit open

NOte if you do not see your webcam image it probably won't record anything. Make sure your webcam is not used by some other application such as msn messenger etc ..

Thank you for giving us feedback.

Have a nice day
