Good morning folks, i wonder if you could help me out. I,m currently building a PC. It is going to be used as a general purpose machine, bit of internet, bit of kids homework and a bit of video editing. Now then, here's the bit where I,m getting myself confused.
I have old movie footage on VHS tapes and some on S-VHS tapes and I want to be able to get that from the video recorder or camera onto my new PC in order to edit it and subsequently burn to DVD.
I,ve been told I don,t need a great graphics card but I could buy one with VIVO functions that would do the job. And I,ve also been told that I could buy something like the Canopus AVDC 50. However, looking at the canopus website it says that the canopus also needs a capture card.
I just want someone to tell me what on earth I need to buy.
Nowt fancy just capable of doing a bit of editing now and then.
I now have a digital camera and will never need to capture analogue again once my old vids are done, so I don,t really want to be spending too much.
