I have a Pyro that takes analog inputs and makes dv outputs to import into the computer. This is fine for 99% of my tasks, but I'm wanting to shoot on a green screen and DV really kills the color channels using the 4:1:1 compression ratio.
I've tried the Spill supressors and matt chokers but still get a halo around the characters, and I don't hava a rotoscoping software.
Is there a way to get analog footage off an analog source without having to use FireWire? TV stations had to have used something for the weather guys before firewire.
