video capture for laptops

  snooker 21:09 10 Mar 2003

I am about to set up my XP laptop to edit video.
I will probably use Movie Maker 2 but does anyone care to suggest a reaonable PCMCIA card
for video capture.

No luck Belatucadrus

What you suggested only gives me a firewire connection and I've already got that.

I have found video-capture products that connect via USB but I was hoping for a simpler and faster connection.

I think that slot-in types used to be available.
Does anyone know of one?

It's just been explained to me that having FIREWIRE I don't need a seperate video capture device!
Now I see what you were getting at Belatucadrus.

Any other comments welcome.

Firewire is all you need as long as your camcorder/other video device has a firewire /IEEE1394 / iLink connection. Older or cheaper camcorders may have s-video out in which case you'll need a video capture card.
