Hello, all. I'm brand new to video but I do quite a bit of
audio work. Looking to get started with some basic editing
and authoring stuff by converting some of my VHS stuff
(mostly hockey) over to DVDs.
I'm thinking of grabbing the AV Link capture box that's
bundled with Adobe Premiere Elements from videoguys. I've
also been looking for a FireWire audio solution for my
laptop since the sound card really sucks.
So, I'm wondering if the AV Link box would provide my audio
solution as well. I believe it's supposed to get me
CD-quality audio coming in via the FireWire line. My
question is: does that box need a video signal to operate?
If I take my laptop somewhere to get a live audio
recording, will the AV Link box convert stereo audio to
digital and put it onto the 1394 line without any video
My guess is that the software that runs during capture
allows for switching the video on or off - true?
i know there is usually an option to turn off AUDIO capture in most programs. as far as i know there is no option to turn off video capture. This box is really intended to be used as a video AND audio capture box.
