Hello everyone, this is my first post on these forums.. I'm very NEW to this whole DV thing..
I recently bought a XH A1 with a burnt fire wire port , and blown internal speaker... (i got a really good deal to say the least, $500)
And I DO plan on getting those issues corrected , however...
when i do get it fixed, will i then be able to capture a dv tape , that has HDV footage on it.... and will that footage be considered HD?? or is it still SD?
from what i understand...and have researched here is that true HD capturing and editing can only be done with tremendous storage space, and capable hardware.... (not just my old vegas 6.0 and a standard tower)
SO basically i'll just be fixing and HD cam without being able to ever use the HD ? (unless i have $$$ more to invest)
i'm just trying to film my bands gigs, rehearsals... and make our EPK, and music video.. and i'm trying to figure out the workflow..
