I am currently using a Powerbook G4 (not-Intel Duo Sad). I am beginning the long journey of becoming a Video Editor, but I need an amateur setup at home. The first piece I need is a capture device that captures (and imports well into Final Cut Pro HD) the following:
VHS (Directly from VCR)
DV/Mini-DV (Directly from camcorder, or a deck)
DVD (From DVD player)
I've heard rumors of Pinnacle MovieBox 9 working on a Mac, but haven't looked further into it.
