Sure you can capture live. In Vegas a video source is a video source. You need a fast enough hard drive to be able to handle the data coming at it but that’s it. WhenI start Vegas Pro and go to “capture” it defaults to my connected webcam where I could live capture if I wanted. If I connect and switch on my Sony I get the picture from it, if it’s in cam mode, or the play screen if it is in VTR mode.
So the short answer is yes. You can capture from any source you connect.
