Digital Video to PC [Firewire to USB]
Posted by firstname.lastname@example.org on February 25, 2019 at 02:48:38:
Not posted here before but hopefully someone can offer a simple solution to a simple problem.
I have many hours of video on DVCAN digital tape. I want it in my PC so I can ditch the tapes and sell the machine that plays them.
So 2 questions:
What hardware do I need to connect the Firewire output from the VCR to my PC?
What software do I need to capture the video and provides a minimal level of editing? All I really want to do after capture is to cut each 3 hour recording into several separate scenes / files.
The next problem will be with my SVHS recordings. Again hundreds of hours that need to be transferred to my PC. This will be S-Video and phono audio to USB, then digitise and capture. Any suggestions appreciated?
