I was trying to capture a ten minute (approx 4Gb) segment of video from a VHS recorder last night to encode it onto a VCD. Almost got it to work but hit a small snag. Bear with me as I cannot remember the exact resolutions, but my capture card drivers come with several preset resolutions for the captured video. The one I wanted to use was the same as PAL VCD. There was also a setting "one below" this which seemed to be the closest res which used nice round numbers. My problem is that I want to capture at at least 25fps. If I used the "one below" res then I could do this easliy. However, if I changed to the PAL res setting, the framrate dropped to a measly 10/12fps. what the fudge???? My setup is as follows: PC: 1.7GHz processor, 256Mb DDR RAM. Capture card: Pinnacle systems, capturing through composite. Cature target disk: 80Gb 7200rpm 2Mb cache. Why, just by tweaking the res up slightly, does the framerate drop by 50%? TIA.
