Has anyone successfully used a programme which captures/converts analogue video footage into digital? If so what is the hardware/ software used and where is it available?
Thanks,

I use a tired old bt848 capture card with windows media encoder (free! -from ms site) and Windows Movie Maker (included with XP) for editing. The quality is good enough to match the quality of plain TV or VCR. I often see cards based on the bt848 chipset for sale second hand, usually for around $60.
Cards such as the 'Flyvideo 98 EZ' for example. www.trademe.co.nz is a good place to look for such gems.
