Video capture?

Video capture? Wow, that brings back memories... BAD memories

Today, everything (almost) is captured to a memory card so Video capture is no longer required. Now you just copy from the memory card to computer hard disk.

IF you are trying to capture from a DV (or HDV) tape, the best way to do that is over Firewire, and the software is usually your NLE.

All my computers have firewire builtin (so I need no additional hardware), but you can get Firewire 400 and 800 addin cards for very little money.

Sorry, didn't see the bit about capturing from VHS tapes.

Maybe something like this:

The greatest of mankind's criminals are those who delude themselves into thinking they have done 'the right thing.'
