    Default Capturing video from multiple sources at once?

    Hi, can any tell me the best way or if it is possible to capture video from say, 4 cameras at the same time?
    I am filming bands at a venue with my camcorder (Sony TRV950) but have recently installed a high res cctv system which I would also like to capture images from.

    My idea was to some how get the live video from the spot outputs on the back of the dvr to my pc.

    Is there a 4 way video card available for this?

    Would I need any additioanl software?

    I am using Pinnacle Studio11 for editing but am seriously considering buying sony vegas 8.

    Thanks

    Hard to say as I have no idea of the outputs fromn the sec cam recorder.

    The files will be on the drive so all you need to do is usb them or whatever / however to your drive.

    They may be in some odd container with a weird codec so ediiting may be a fiddle and I suspect that if you make the sec cam video anything more than a spot effect it will look pretty poor.

    Brief cut ways perhaps will work. Even good sec cam video is usually poor in quality and all coniderations of good camera craft and composition are out the window.

    I hope you post how it works out if you manage - will be intersting to see how it shapes up.
