This is my first post
I have some questions, about which video capture/edit hardware to buy...
I'll be editing some videos, all of which are made with DV cameras (Canon XL-1s'), so I probably won't need to input from Analogue.
The video resulting from the edit will then be used to make DVD's, so there won't be any output to tape.
The videos will have some effects and transitions, but nothing too flashy.
I will need a video capture card good enough to allow maximum quality from capture ( imports directly from DV ) and that is able to produce very high quality MPEG-2 (via hardware).
I have access to a lab that has Avid's Xpress Pro software, so i don't need other video editing software, although i'll consider changing to Premiere Pro, if necessary.
I'm also on a restrict budget, so can you please point out video capture cards that fit the description above (essential!!!) and the following intervals (not so essential):
- up to 150 £ (225 €)
- from 150£ - 300£ (225€ - 450€)
- from 300£ - 500£ (450€ - 750€)
- from 500£ - 1000£ (750€ - 1500€)
Thank you so much for your time!!
