Analog camcorder capture: USB 1.1 or 1394?

I am planning on getting a Dazzle device to import and export analog video. Does the speed difference between USB and Fire Wire matter in this application?

Firewire is still faster.

Are you getting the Dazzle strictly for digitizing analog?

What app are you editing in?

There are relatively inexpensive transcoders out nowadays that will convert analog signals to DV.

Check out the Canopus ADVC-100.

Yes, the Dazzle is just to bring my 8mm camcorder footage into the PC for editing, make DVD's, and export in analog to VHS.
I have Videowave editing software, and something comes with the Dazzle that is probably rudimentary.
Does 'faster' on the Firewire refer to amount of time it takes to capture? Or is the issue of rendering time in play here?
What does the Canopus do?

It's only going to digitize as fast video runs. So, roughly 30 frames per second.

The Canopus ADVC-100 basically converts analog media into DV media through the OHCI port. It sort of works likes an external BOB (break out box).
