In my movie production days, I was always the sound guy, so I never really paid that much attention to the video hardware, but Stonepiano's movie has had me thinking about getting the movies I worked on off of VHS and into digital.

I'd like to rig up my Powerbook to be able to take an analog video signal in from a VCR. Is there a cheap but decent capture device that would do a decent job? I want the video equivilent of the M-Audio Audiophile, I guess, although I'd need something firewire since it's a laptop.

Thanks.

the ADS Pyro is a firewire capture device but it's pricey. I recently bought a Pinnacle Studio 500-PCI but you're looking firewire. I would check out those two companies for their entire range of products. Maybe something'll fit.

Cool, thanks. I don't know Behringer from Neumann in video gear, so that helps.

Don't know if you're still reading this thread but for what it's worth, unless you plan on getting into video, I'd suggest taking it to a shop and having it transferred there. A good capture device will cost more and unless you have the computing power, you'll experience drop outs.

You should try Streaming Networks iRecord Pro Personal Media Recorder which allows you to record Various Media SourcesSave Video & Audio to Portable Devices with a High Resolution. Also I recommend Hauppauge HD PVR High Definition Video Recorder wich records HD Video.
