Help newbie new in video editing
by kraikkonen on Nov 27, 2001 at 4:32:03 am
I just got myself a newbie dv cam the canon MV400i (i cannot remember the name for this cam for the US version), and i also own a dazzle/snazzi dvc which lets u record via s-cable and standard composite thru USB to the PC in mpeg format, up to 2500 rate, 352x288 PAL. I am interested in investing the firewire way, for better video quality, as the mpeg capturing is too grainy.
1- if i capture with firewire (in avi i assume) and later compress to mpeg vcd format, will the end product better as compared to capturing directly with the dazzle/snazzi.
2 - what fire wire card should i get ( on a tight budget)
BTW i am using MSP6 for editing
3 - will my system able to handle the fire wire, P!!!733 256PC133, 7.2K rpm hd ATA66

To answer your questions:
1. Yes, if you shoot DV at full resolution your end product will have much more clarity when you finish than the Dazzle will give you.
2. Any card that is compatible with MS Direct X. Hint: most firewire cards are sold alone for under $60 U.S., and many are bundled with full versions of editing software cheap. Example, Adobe Premiere is bundled with some cards for less than half the list price.
3. Yes, there are lots of people editing on slower systems.
