I just got Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5, and all was well until…I realized it only captures HDV or by firewire!!!! I have an analog video camera and this is a big problem for me!!!! I’m ordering a PCI firewire for my computer. Does anyone out there know of a device that will take in analog video/audio(thru those yellow/red/white connectors) and put it to your computer thru firewire. As I am on an EXTREMELY limited budget anyone with advice for something that can do this for below $100 would be really helpful and appreciated.
Hold your horses! You don’t need Firewire for analog capture, unless you use an A2D converter such as the Canopus ADVC series, which captures analog signal though S-Video or Cinch and delivers it to the PC using a Firewire port. Otherwise, what you need is a capture card with S-Video and Composite inputs. For $ 100 you could get the Pinnacle Studio AV/DV or something similar, or take a look on eBay.
So find a device that fits your needs, and budget, and post back for more advice.
Thanks a lot! I’ll keep that in mind.
