Analogue input - daft question

  atoms 12:36 17 Jan 2004

I have a Connect 3DRadeon 9800 Pro with a s-video connector. Can I capture video files direct from the S-video output on my Sony analogue camcorder?

I have perused the Radeon Multmedia manual but although mentioned connection of camcorders and vcr does not mention whether it is for digital only.

It's for analogue camcords as it's for vcr (analogue). (Digital transfer would be thro firewire to pc.)

BTW if you ever upgrade to a Sony dv camcord some models have analogue 'passthrough' so you can transfer dv and analogue tapes (it auto converts to dv).

Your graphics card probably only has an output (to output the graphics to another device, eg a VCR or TV.

It will say in it's specification if it also supports video-in - but this is out of the usual.

it would need to be an ATI all in wonder(AIW)for video in and will look something like click here

Not necessarily - some other boards support Video in, without having the Tuner that AIWs ahve - example click here

I have a WinPCI and Daughters Sanyo analogue camcorder, I just plug it in to Ariel socket to play and capture

If it's got Ariel you should be able to plug it in and show on Comp etc
