    Some graphics cards have VIVO (Video In - Video Out) connections. Because of the amount of connections, most cards have what's known as a "break-out box", which plugs into the video card to offer all the connections in a convieniant box. Using this method, I can capture high quality video.

    thanks

    How much are these things?

    would i be better off getting a movie box from pinnacle (USB)

    You see, i am quite an experienced video editor (though i am only 14 im not bad.) I used to edit pictures but i allways have to use basics. with all my pictures the most powerful program i had was paint, and when ifirst started video with an analogue camera, it did not come with an edit lead so i did it all with 2 VCR's connected by scart recording and stopping to cut and paste. i then started digital video editing with movie maker 1, then later found out there was a free upgrade. Which, might i point out, is amazing for a peice of freeware. i know a lot about software but i never knew up until a few weeks ago that there was any such hardware which let you get analogue stuff onto digital format, so this is all new to me.

    help is much appreciated thanks

    i already own a pinnacle PCTV rave card. though i was going to take it back beacause the quality was far from perfect (as it claimed on the box).

    will the software you suggested improve the quality from 2 frames a second?

    whats a driver??
