Appendix A: Capturing Footage

Appendix A. Capturing Footage

So far, you've been working on footage that you imported from the DVD that comes with this book. But what of your own project's footage? This appendix thoroughly discusses the ways you can import footage from videotape, whether from digital or analog sources. The only thing you need to capture DV footage is a DV camera. If you have analog sources, you need to add to your system some sort of D/A converter in the form of a camera, deck, or stand-alone D/A converter.

If you want to work with higher resolutions than DV, you need a capture card or converter box, as well as a fast disk array to handle the data rate. Refer to Chapter 1, “Essential Equipment,” for details.
