Hi I'm doing the visuals for a gig that we're putting on this Friday. This compromises of a bit of VJing for a DJ set and then live footage from four angles of the bands. At the moment the set up is the four cameras running into a vision mixer with a single analogue/svideo out however I have a bit of a problem.
I am using a macbook pro running modul8 for the VJ stuff and this all works fine. For the live video and capture I have to use the windows partition on my macbook to run the software that runs the analogue digitital video converter I currently have.
what I'm really asking for is there any product out there which serves as a usb or firewire analogue to digital video interface that works with Mac which can run in real time so that I can get a live feed from the desk into modul8 which allows me to stay on the one platform (rather than switching between mac and windows) and also incorporate video footage into the visual composition for the VJing, and applying effects to the live band footage. The transitions between camera angles is being done on the fly with the vision mixer. Would something a advc55 or 110 be up to the job?
any help greatly appreciated
