I've purchased a firewire card, £15 job. I'm aware that there's plenty of freeware software out there for capturing DV but I'm wondering if anyones aware of any that can be used to batch capture like premium programmes such as Premiere and Avid can. I'm thinking that this is probably a no but, there are many wonderful folk who do write quality software for free and maybe someone has implemented this feature. I do have 'proper' editing software but last time I tried to get a budget card working in Premiere, it told me it wasn't supported. Annoying really as I would've thought it isn't absolutely necessary to support specific cards considering Firewire is a standerdised format.
