OT - Video capture methods

Not really off-topic cuz we all like to see some good vids of 4x4s wheeling so in gearing up for next season what is everybody using? I have an analog Hi8 camcorder going into an ATI all-in-wonder TV/capture card spitting out either avi, mpeg1 or mpeg2. Also *.wmv format through the WinXP movie maker. What other tools, software or hardware are you guys using?

Re: OT - Video capture methods

I'd be interested myself. There is microsoft movie maker on my machine, along with MGI Video Wave 4 and aist MovieDVsuite. None of which I know diddly about using yet. I just went out and bought a sony DV camcorder for those paragon runs(grin!) and I'm having a spielberg fantasy but as of yet I'm clueless.

With the Sony DV you need to get a FireWire card for your machine. After installing it you can connect the Sony's FW output to the FW card's input. Then you can use the Windows Movie maker to capture footage and possibly the other video editing software you have too.

<font face="Comic Sans MS">With the DV ones you get all sorts of choices, the ALL In Wonder card, a regular video capture card, or firewire... Completely up to you... I have one of the digital ones... It's great that they built in both options (regular AV outputs and firewire)... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

If I ever get my pile of (computer) parts together that's the method I'll use (the ATI AIW card)...</font>

Re: OT - Video capture methods

I've got the fire wire card and all that. I know how to capture video to my machine. It's learning them fancy video editing programs that I have to work on. Once I get past that I just need to decide it I want to be the jeep worlds spielberg, or just say fudge it and become an internet porno king.

Re: OT - Video capture methods

I use the ATI all-in-wonder card also. It really is a great card. I can hookup a camcorder to it, but I don't have one. Right now I have a digital camera that takes about 2 minute clips, and downloads through USB. Right now, the ATI card is pretty much the center of my home theatre. I have cable tv into it, and output to the TV. You can do TIVO free with these cards as well as zoom, plus it's an excellent 3D accelerator. A pc DVD with a SB 5.1 digital card and sony 5.1 receiver for the sound. I can watch tv/dvd, surf the net, check email, write a program, etc... all on the tv and all at the same time. I've been really impressed with that card. I guess that's enough pimping of the ATI though!
