  • Sony DVCAM Tape player into Davinci

    Posted by David Kaltenbach on November 21, 2023 at 8:59 pm

    I have many DVCAM tapes and the Sony DVCAM player. The player was hooked up to my old MAC and Final Cut Pro 7. No problem with importing into FC7. The MAC crashed forever. My question: I’d like to capture into DaVinci 18. Under preferences in DaVinci, under Video I/O, capture device is dark and states NONE. Is it possible to capture into DaVinci with the Digital Sony DVCAM player?

    Thank you.

    If your DVCam player has SDI output and you get a Decklink card with SDI input, you can capture into Resolve or use the much simpler Black Magic Media Express software to control and capture the files. That free software is part of the Decklink card software

    Thank you very much Michael. Looks like I do have a SDI output on the Sony DVCAM player. I will certainly attempt that capture. Appreciate it. I’ll let you know of my success or whatever.
