Does anyone have the Pinnacle studio av/dv version which includes the following: Pinnacle Studio AV/DV version 9 Pinnacle Studio AV/DV version 9 is an internal analog and digital video card that lets you capture your home movies from any consumer videotape to your PC. Includes the full version of Studio 9, the world?s top-selling consumer software video editor.
If so, can you tell me what type of capture card is bundled with it? It may be a non pinnacle branded card which i can buy from a net retailer.
What Dv camm is he using? So many today are able to be used as a pass through converter from analogue to digital. If he has not that facility the I would suggest that you post your query here click here as there is a great deal of expertise on that site.
I have a Hercules video capture card linked to the output SCART of a standard VHS video recorder. It works well for me but I dont use pinnacle software (thought about trialling it but have not got round to it yet).
I know that some software only supports certain capture cards (MyDVD does not support mine) so I would suggest that you check on the Pinnacle site for any compatibility list.
