Re: how do I capture vidio to my conputer
You will need a capture card and a video editing program on your Windows machine, and what is known as a firewire input. Macs from the G3 upward have a firewire input built in. Macs come with I-Video program which offers log and capture and editing capability.
Connect one end of he firewire cord to the camera computer output and the other to the computer. Select the log and capture option in the software and transfer video.
You will need lots of hard drive space to store your video, about 10 gigs per hour. You will also need a way to burn your video to DVD if you wish to save it and view it. Some people just upload their video to YouTube, which will only accept video of nine minutes in length or less.
While it may seem simple, there are a lot of techniques you will need to learn to capture, edit and output video.
You will need to experiment a lo before you learn all the tricks and variations in this process/.

If you have time, you would project your film onto a screen, and use a video camera to capture the show. Likely, you will get rather poor quality.
When professionally done, each frame is captured separately and made into a video. Better quality, but it takes a bunch of equipment that's expensive.
You can use A/V interface to connect the Camcorder to the Computer and transfer the recordings.
In order to use the A/V interface, the computer should be equipped with an A/V capture card which has the A/V input port.
If you doesn't have the A/V port in your Computer, you may purchase an A/V capture card to connect the Camcorder.
It will not cost more to purchase an A/V capture card.
If you purchase the A/V capture card, you can also connect any devices like VCR, Cable Box etc and capture the videos in Computer.
Please contact your nearest Computer dealer to get the A/V capture card.
If you have A/V capture card, you can use Windows Movie Maker to capture the recordings.
Yes you can. You may need to purchase a capture card though. So that your computer can capture video from the camera. You can get the capture cards for as little as 20$ Just google capture cards and start reading. There is tons of info out there and they are very popular for things like this and capturing from the tv etc... Thanks, Lee
You need a USB of Firecable depending on what interface you have on your camcorder. Then you need a capture program such as Pinnacle Studio to bring the video in. Windows Movie Maker isn't compatible with USB or Firewire cameras.
Sony's website says: "Some digital
camcorders must be setup to output a signal through the i.LINK® port
prior to being connected to a computer. Consult the instruction manual
of your camcorder for specific information before continuing with the
steps in this solution. Instruction manuals are available in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Ensure the i.LINK cable is connected securely to the camcorder and computer.
Ensure the camcorder is turned on and being powered by the supplied AC power adapter.
Ensure the video capture card and software are configured properly to receive the i.LINK signal from the camcorder.
on the video capture card and software you are using, you may need to
manually configure the capture card and software to receive a signal
from the i.LINK port. If applicable, check the Help files of the software or contact the video capture card or software manufacturer for further information.
digital camcorders are not provided with and do not require special
device drivers for i.LINK connectivity. The device drivers that allow
i.LINK connectivity should be provided with the video capture software.
If the software you are using does not appear to have the required
drivers, you will need to contact the software manufacturer.
Likely this is the case where the camcorder needs to be setup in order to connect to the Firewire port. This is done inside the menus. Windows XP and Windows Vista will detect a camcorder connected to a Firewire port automatically. Make sure your camcorder is powered up and configured before connecting it. Does your PC have a Firewire port? Many do not, PCI cards with firewire ports can be bought online or from local retailers. Some sound cards come equipped with one.
Your computer must be equipped with an IEEE 1394 (Firewire) interface and video capture software. Provided you have both of these, follow the directions below.
To connect your digital camcorder to your computer using IEEE1394, follow these steps:
1. Connect the IEEE 1394 interface on your camcorder to the IEEE 1394 interface on your computer.
2. Turn on your computer.
3. Turn on your camcorder.
4. Start the video capture software on the computer.
Image capture should begin provided the computer hardware and software are configured correctly. If image capture does not begin, you must consult the computer or capture card manufacturer for assistance.
Note: If you don't have an IEEE 1394 interface on your computer, you can buy an IEEE 1394 pci card at your local computer store that will work with most current computers.
Since VHSC camcorders feature only analog outputs: it is not possible to connect the camcorder directly to a PC (unless a computer video card is equipped with analog inputs). The only way to transfer images from the camcorder to a PC will be using an external device capable of analog/digital signal conversion. JVC has released a capture device model, GV-CB3U which has the capability of video capture of a single frame in either Bitmap or JPEG format. The GV-CB3 can be connected to any video source through a standard video or S-Video connector and download single image to a PC using serial port (RS232C communication port). The JLIP Video Capture software necessary to transfer images to the computer as well as connecting cables are supplied with this product. You can also use 3rd party hardware (Video Capturing device) to send information from your camera to a PC. Visit your local PC or Office store for more information on other video capturing devices.
