Is a capture card required?
on Jan 1, 2005 at 6:49:25 am

I would just like to clarify something.

I have a Sony DV Cam which is capable of AV -> DV conversion. I have a small amount of VHS material I would like to capture, edit it a little then burn to DVD. Capture would be via my camcorder thru the firewire port.

Am I right with the notion that I do not need to get a capture card for my (as yet non-existant) NLE PC?

TIA for any replies

If your Sony camcorder supports directly digitizing analog video, then you can use your camcorder to do the digitize the video and upload it to your computer via the firewire port. Some of their basic models do not support this, but most models do.

All you'll need is an inexpensive firewire card like the ADS Pyro.

Thanks for the replies guys. That helps a lot.

One last question, do I still need to get an ADS Pyro if the motherboard (such as the ASUS P4P800 e-Deluxe) has an onboard firewire port?

no you do not have to. I used on my older pc the onboard firewire and it worked fine.
