Cheap analog capture card for FCP7.
on Jan 26, 2014 at 6:12:12 pm

Hi all,

I need to capture some VHS tapes (couple of 100). I want to have the end result in SD Prores HQ.
Are there any old capture cards that I can pick up and use for this? One that has composite of s-video in.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

PCI-X or PCI-E, doesn't matter I think.

Found these one on ebay:

Blackmagic Decklink HD Extreme + Breakout Cable + Software:

Or

AJA Kona-LH 12-Bit HD and SD Video Editing and Graphics PCI-X
http://www.benl.ebay.be/itm/111233447467?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p...

Difficult to find user manuals of these legacy cards.

Cheers!
K.

It does matter. This is pretty important. These are different connections. Are you running a G5, or a MacPro?

This card is cheaper than both the ones listed, and does what you need:

Although ProRes HQ for VHS? that's overkill. The quality won't improve at all over ProREs 422. Only increase you'll see is file size.

I'm running hackintosh so I got PCI but no PCI-X. So it does matter like you say.

But the newer blackmagic solutions start at 200$, much more then the 90$ Blackmagic Decklink on ebay...

Or am I missing something?

Cheers!

Your gonna need a hackincard. I've never seen one.

If your computer has firewire, you can use a dv camcorder to capture to DV format.

Not really. My friend has a Hackintosh running a Decklink Extreme. Cut a doc feature with it.
