Also, Roy- get over to the Matrox 'site and check out their encoders...
HERE at about $600, it's a "video 001". All real-time, no rendering.

There are some users of earlier versions of the Hollywood Dazzle that have come to refer to it as the Hollywood Frazzle, so it's made me wary of them, much the same way when a hard drive gets the name "Death Star" you wonder, "Why do they call it a 'flood plain'?"

BRB knows his stuff, and if he says his Dazzle is working well, then perhaps they fixed ALL the bugs. I'm still cautious.

Thanks BRB and SK.....it's amazing how when you buy something cheap (my camera), you usually wind up paying far more in the long run...

I know. I got a $700 mic and needed a $6,000 pile of stuff to plug it into. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
You might want to join up onto the Sonic Foundry Vegas Video forum. Those people are a lot like the 001 for Windows crowd, and there is a search feature, too.

Stoney -

Thanks, and YES, The newer versions of Dazzle are FAR better than previous attempts!

Default Best and cheapest way to transfer camcorder film(tape) to a Digital film medium...

We have an inexpensive camcorder that uses the 'cassette', non-digital type film. Unfortunately, we didn't cross over to a digital camera before filming a lot of classic family stuff.

I would really like to get it into the pc, and wanted to ask you for some suggestions.(keeping price in mind). [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks so much, Roy

p.s.I know I had asked about bringing video into PT before, but I have to wait a couple of months on that.

www.dazzle.com

I've used the Dazzle system and it ROCKS! USB connect, analogue and/or digital media editing.

$179.00 on CompUSA.com - Link

Roy,

I just recently bought a solution for the problem you describe. It is from a company called Pinnacle Systems (pinnaclesys.com). It connects through USB port, and does a great job. It cost me $50 or $60, I can't remember exactly.

It also includes the software, and you can put files in a number of different formats including .mpg, .avi as well as streaming formats- Real, Windows Media. I am happy with it.

Roy,

It also has a great editing feature. I forgot to mention that in last post.

Hi Bill,
Man, I almost deleted this topic, but I had a feeling that I shouldn't yet...
Thanks! That sounds like exactly what I'm looking for, especially price-wise.
Hey, I'm using some of those mondo Zildian cyms of yours on something I'm working on, and they are so strong, I have to hold em back. They work great in the piece, though. I still appreciate that too.

Anyway, thanks very much... [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

~Roy

You say you didn't cross over to a digital camera until later.... does that mean you now currently own a digital camera? If so, then you can use your digital camera to convert analog signal to digital on the fly and shoot it right into the computer.
