I have been searching this board, and so far it seems the most helpful, and i have found lots of fun stuff that i now want to do on my own.
For the project i am working on though, i have not found an answer yet.
Any suggestions would be helpful, whether it be expensive or not.
Here's what is going on:
I need to record a test so that it can be viewed by lots of different people and can be stored for up to 30 years. The test is typical between 30 seconds and 2 minutes long and uses up to 4 cameras per sample.
We have a system which uses 4 Canon GL2 camcorders to record to DV tapes, which we then capture one by one using DV Storm Edit software, trim the video, add a title/opening frame with test info, create the AVI and then we have to use canopus Procoder to convert the video using the mpeg4 codec.
Obviously, the current procedure is very time consuming and 5 years outdated. We would like to continue to use the GL2 cameras, only convert to a tapeless system. What are the options out there to be able to capture 4 cameras simultaneously? I know that with most of the advanced software i could probably make a program to automatically add the title frame and dump the videos to the appropriate directories, but i am having a hard time finding anything that will capture all 4 cameras with sound.
