Analog Capture Cards That Use the DV Codec

These cards are the best of both worlds in some respects. They provide analog video and audio IN and OUT, but use the DV codec when storing the actual media files. This means that you can also use clips that were brought into Premiere directly through FireWire because they both create DV-based files. These cards are also very cost effective and provide a generous number of real-time effects, such as dissolves and static graphics (titles)—sometimes, they can even perform color correction. They are available for both the Mac and PC. A number of these cards are in the Premiere-compatible list.

NOTE

ARE YOU IN OR ARE YOU OUT?

When hooking up your VCR to your computer’s A/V card, the connectors should be clearly marked as to whether they are “IN” or “OUT” connections. If you cannot capture analog video with your card and your card is on the “compatible” card list, your connections may be reversed. Make sure the IN and OUT wires are plugged in properly and completely. The video IN of the capture card goes to the video OUT of the video source, such as a VCR. The video OUT jacks of the capture card go to the video IN of your video recorder.
