Thread: Hi8 to pc conversion

  1. #1

    Angry Hi8 to pc conversion

    I need to convert some Hi 8 tapes to the harddrive on my pc then onto dvd. I had to borrow a friends camcorder which is a Samsung VP-L850D. What leads to i need and how do i go about editing to my harddrive? The only ports on the camcorder are S-Video DC in and AV out.

    With Thanks

    That's the problem with analog video. You need a capture card to transfer the material to PC. A TV tuner will do, but the quality isn't as good as when capturing through a PCI capture card. Another option would be to use an external (usually USB) device, such as the Canopus ADVC100.

    Thanks!
    The Canopus is very expensive, if i brought a capture card would it come with the right leads? And is a capture card like a tv tuner card?

    Capture cards usually come with all accessories. It is different than a tv tuner in respect to quality (which is better) and the fact that you can't receive tv programmes with it.

    If you do not wish to edit the footage, the quickest and simplest route from HI8 to DVD is by using a set-top DVD recorder.
