This section describes how to capture digital video (DV) from a DV camera or from a VTR tape.
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.
Note The camcorder must be in VTR mode. See Device Type.
