Is there anyway to capture video from my TV? My friend was recently interviewed on the news, I want to import this footage into my camcorder so we can use it in a short film.
Thanks for your help

Half of what I edit either goes just online, and the other half goes both on tv and online. I need a monitor that will give me an accurate picture of what the video will look like, especially on tv. I startedresearchingmonitors and they all are way out of my price range. Would it be a good idea to get a tv instead? Or is there a good enough computer monitor no more than $300. What specs should I be looking for and what is the difference between a tv an a computer monitor?
Has anyone reading this attended TV station tours? I'm more interested in the technical issues of videotaping and editing, not reporting a story or getting to the news. Any suggestions for the Baltimore area?
I'm new to this site so sorry if this is not what you talk about or if I put it into the wrong section but I have seen a lot of tv and youtube videos where people insert others videos into theirs. I'd like to know how to do this legally.
I've recently been asked to begin compressing some video for SD television. The engineer with the Television station would like an mpeg-2 format but when compressing out of Compressor the video looks terrible. Worse than compressing for a DVD. Anyone have any suggestions on mpeg-2 compression settings that will increase my quality of picture. I use FCP with the Apple Intermediate Codec in my timeline. Another question, is there another compression program that would be better for television compression.
I guess using current vernacular I would be considered a newbie. I'd like to give a brief description of my gear and then pose my question. Here goes; Canon XH A1s and shooting HD (PAL). Avid media composer 5 and that's about it.
This is a commercial I've created for a local business. I've done multiple videos for them before, including a previous commercial. The only new footage in this commercial are the clips of the girls at beginning and end. All the other footage is older, from older videos I shot for the company.
