Thread: ADVICE ON ANALOGUE VIDEO CAPTURE CARD

    Default ADVICE ON ANALOGUE VIDEO CAPTURE CARD

    Hi all
    I am thinking of transferring some home video Hi8 footage to computer for editing. Is the cheap Dazzle DVC 80 usb analogue capture device any good ? Or is the resolution too low, I notice that it is only 340 x 280, and others are higher. Confused about resolution for video - if this card used, will it show up full screen once burned to DVD and played on TV ? Will it be dodgy quality ? Is it worth paying more for the pinnacle moviebox usb analague adaptor, is the res. higher on this, will it be a noticeable difference. This area of computing is new to me. Hope you can help.
    Thanks

    Thanks, had some info from friend and came to same conclusion, steer clear of USB and go for a PCI card. (see my other post, have asked question about ripping from DVD and then editing?!)

    While I have your attention, and you seem like you are the one that knows it all. Will a huappage tv card do the job ? I do have high spec computer to handle the processing (athlon xp2800, 1gig ram, 120gig hd) as I understand there is no hardware accelerator on the tv cards. I am not intending on recording hours on end, just little snippets for editing into a movie about my children.
    hope you can give some advice

    Expert? No, just someone with too much time on their hands.

    A TV card will do the job, but it's not really ideal.

    Hi
    Ok, so if you say a TV card will do the job, but is not ideal, is the next step up a dedicated video capture card ? If so which is a good make? Any ideas. Soooo many questions. sorry.

    (I know firewire with a separate av/dv convertor is best route to follow for this but it is toooo expensive for me).
    thank you
