Many newer camcorders have a passthrough feature that will take analog video in and pass it thru to the firewire. Not easy for some to find and tricky since all the times I've done this the TAPE must be removed from the miniDV camcorder to passthough. Then I use WinDV to do the capture.
Best of luck,
I have a Panasonic Camera, which I bougth 10 years ago in EUROPE. It has video 8 and Video&Stereo Audio outputs to watch and/or record recorded movies. I bougth a new PC with Video card installed, but video card has only IEEE 1394 inputs to capture movies.
Does anyone have any Idea whether there is a method and/or adapter card etc. to convert video8 or Video&Audio outputs of Camera to IEEE 1394 ?
