I was looking to find out if a sync generator was necessary when capturing from VHS using a Decklink HD Extreme 3D card in a MAC PRO. I am capturing S video out of a SONY SVO 5800 (since I don't have the optional component board) into FCP 7 at the moment and it does appear that longer captures (6o minutes or so) show some audio drift. Would a sync generator do anything in this situation?
HI Paul, Thanks for responding. Currently I have the capture tool set to Uncontrollable device. That's actually the only way I can capture since these are ancient VHS tapes that have many breaks in the control track. Let me know if you have any other ideas. Thanks again for chiming in.
