Not been on the forum for a while but trying to get back into things now.
I bought a Pinnacle AV/DV Deluxe package when I first started video-editing, to use with Pinnacle Studio 9. This worked ok (not great, but then my experiences with Pinnacle software were never too positive). However, many years later and now with a Windows 7, 64-bit PC, I can't get it to work (even using a newer version of Pinnacle Studio 14).
Therefore, I'm looking to buy some new hardware to capture analogue video from my old camcorder (via component cables) and was looking for recommendations. There's some cheap £10 Component-to-USB gadgets on Amazon but the reviews are poor. Ideally, I'd prefer an external device so I can easily use it between different PCs and would like to capture to edit in Sony Vegas (my current package of choice).
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
