I use firewire and WINDV (google.com) and don't suffer so. Analog capture will be gruesome since you will have noise and generational losses.
I'm having a video capturing image loss issue. My
Panasonic DVC30 records beautiful video, as can be seen both on the viewing screen and when I display it on a TV. However,
when I go to preview and then capture, the image
quality loss is awful. I have a 9600xt All-In-Wonder
graphics card and I've attempted both S-video and RCA
with similar results. I've also tweaked the capturing
quality options in the Studio 8 and Windows video
capturing programs. I'm at a loss and could really use
some advice. I want to record and render an image
that is the same on my camera! What should I do? Thanks.
