Hi. Searched forums and noticed a lot of advice now many years old.
Wondering what - in 2012 terms - is the best method of transfering Hi8 and MiniDV video to my PC.
I have a fire wire connection, and use PinnacleStudio Plus as my video editor.
But I have about 30 hours of taped material which I would like to get on my PC for editing.
I have some solutions but all seem to work at normal tape speed - 1 hour of tape takes 1 hour to move to PC.
If there was a way to speed this up withjout losing quality, that would be great!
Finally - I would like whatever app I use to easily allow the digital file to be split into relevant sections - again without losing any quality.
