Might be a dumb question, in which case I apologize in advance...
Need to transfer some of my Hi 8 home movies into computer for editing. I had been intending to transfer whole lock stock onto DVD discs through Jessops or similar anyway for archiving. So is it technically possible to then 'rip' certain bits from these said DVD disc onto the computer HD and then do my edits ? Or is this a silly completely ridiculous idea ?
Or should I purchase a PCD video capture card and do it that way ? If so, any advice on a good make for less than £50.
My computer spec as follows :-
1 gig ram
120gig hard drive
Pinnacle Studio 9plus (no it didn't come with a card, a gift)
Hope you can help.
