I have read the analogue-digital guide to high quality by marc and am a bit confused.
I have a dazzle fusion which came with pinnacle 8 quickstart. i am running it on a laptop with USB 1 and the quality is awful, i mean black and white with grains and lines and about 3 frames a second. The laptop can only run pinnacle 8 quickstart but hasn't got the memory to capture from it. I downloaded a freeware capture program which the computer can handle but it is still the crap quality. I am considering moving up to USB 2 which is made all the while harder as i am using a laptop.
My only solution at the moment is to buy a USB 2 PCMCIA card and put it into my laptop to increase its quality.
the guide mentioned that it can be something to do with encoding. Does the fusion have a poor encoder?
