    HI8 into DVD/MPG?

    Discussion started by CIPHER_one - Mar 23, 2005

    Hi

    I'm starting editing soon on a project and have a bunch of HI8 footage and no idea how to get it on the Mac. What's the best way to do it, aside form getting someone else to do it for me, cuz it costs an assload.

    thnx

    when did I become the A/V Club?

    unless your camera has firewire out (which is probably not the case)
    you'll need to get a DV i/o breakout box. I use the Canopus AVDC50
    for simple projects. Really you just need a video card that can capture
    analog sources (like s-video) or a breakout box that connects via firewire.

    asides from that, the only other option is to have a dub shop digitize
    the footage and give you quicktime files to work with.

    Well, Im at a fancy film school so I imagine they have some stuff that can capture from analog sources.

    I'm not familiar with the 'breakout box'. Are they easy to use, fairly cheap?

    thx bud

    a breakout box is a converter that turns an analog source into a digital source. (or the other way around)

    I have a DVX-100 (mini-dv) camera, am I able to connect my HI-8 to that or something?

    Or can I tape my HI-8 stuff on to VHS and then transfer VHS to a DVD or just on to a computer or something?

    play out of the hi8 camera (via s-video) and record on to a miniDV tape.
    Then play out off that miniDV and capture it via firewire into the computer.

    case closed.

    I don't have an S-video cable or whatever. I tried going into the DV camera from the hi-8 cam with RCA cables. and it almost worked, but when I played it on the HI8 camera nothing showed up on the DV camera. Would the S-video cable make it work?

    thx

    at this point, you're on your own.
    I dont know the cameras that you are using or the menu settings.

    Sorry, but seriously...I can feel the frustration from Key and it's not like this is really a difficult concept. Go to your local BestBuy and talk to some of the people there. Not only will they be able to help you determine exactly what you need. THEY WILL HAVE IT THERE FOR YOU TO BUY!! It's an amazing world we live in.

    You ask about pricing, practices, and specifics but you give none in return..This is where you local Best Buy representitive will be all awaiting your arrival...

    clue2 speaks the truth.

    the hi8 to miniDV transfer thing is about as basic as it gets.
    Anyone in the video sales dept of a bestbuy will be able to hook it up for you.
