Old school way is to just sit the camera in front of the monitor and shoot. Now that LCD’s don’t have the scanning issues the old CRT’s used to, it’s a cinch to do. The other way is to do a video feed out to a camera or recorder to get clean video. That depends purely on what kind of gear and connections you have available. Most computer video cards have a video out feature be it an RCA, S-Video, BNC or HDMI setup. If you have a dedicated video capture card depending on its features you can either capture directly or do a video feed out to a camera or recorder.
