I want to purchase Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 software, but I'm not sure what video capture/conversion option I should use for my hi-8 tapes. Will the Matrox RTX-100 allow me to capture analog and convert to DV for editing in Premiere, or do I need a converter box like the Canopus ADVC-300? Clues? Recommendations?
The RT.X100 includes both digital and analog capture hardware, so you'll be able to capture your analog video directly into Matrox DV format. Just make sure your system is configured per Matrox's system recommendations.
