Video Capture Equipment


Heineken Man

Hey guys I am looking to get into video editing (for fun mostly) and I have no idea on what kind of equipment I should purchase. I have done a "little" researh but I think I am looking at low end equipment. I am looking to spend just $200.00 for the PC equipment. e.g. pc card and tranfer device. I know alot of you are into that stuff so hopefully you guys can point me in the right direction.

Thanks for the replies in advance,

I have an ATI All-in-Wonder, it has composite/coax/s-video inputs and composite output I believe. I think it's a very capable card, with the multimedia center, built in dvd decoder, and software you can download from the Internet you can do just about anything as far as capturing goes, plus more.

Brrruuuummmpppp, bump, bump.

Still looking for some information before I waste my money.


For an inexpensive and what I consider a decent way to do this is like Trinity already mentioned. I've used the all-in-wonder series along with a few old ATI rage fury 32mb cards with video in/out and gotten great results with a very small learning curve. :) I currently use my GeForce2 in the same resects and get some dang fine results! The ATI cards come with free software and as an aside, Windows XP movie maker works ok. I also use a proggy called Irfanview (free also) to capture video/pics from my digicam. (not to mention a hundred other things like batch rename/convert, etc.. :))

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
