When footage is captured from analog sources such as VHS, S-VHS, Video-8, or Hi8 camcorders/VCRs, it is converted to a digital format that can be read and stored by the computer. Before capturing, choose the desired file format to use for saving the captured video in the Options Panels Format list.
Click Options then select Capture Options to choose how you want footage to be captured.
To specify the type of video source you are capturing from, click Options then select Video Properties. In the dialog box that opens, you can customize the following capture settings:
|In the Input Source tab, choose whether you are capturing NTSC, PAL, or SECAM video and select the Input source (TV, Composite, or S-Video).|
|In the Color Manager tab, you can fine tune the video source to ensure good quality captures.|
|In the Template tab, set the frame size and compression method to use for saving the captured video.|
