As you will have gathered from my other posts, I have recently acquired a tosh XS32. I have a Sony analogue Hi8 camcorder which I hope to sell soon. Before I let it go I would like to use it to capture my tapes into a digital format for future digital editing and creation of DVDs. The plan is to use my PC which I have upgraded to what I think will do the job. What's holding me back is the lack of software and time contraints (2 little 'uns). I have two options: 1. I could use my digital camcorder to relay the analogue tapes to my PC. I would probably use a trial version of Ulead or something similar for capture. Editing, authoring and burning would then happen sometime in the future. 2. I could use my tosh to capture the analogue tapes. My questions are: 1. What format should I capture in? I take it from the other threads here that capture on the tosh would be mpeg and not AVI. 2. Am I right in assuming that capture from analogue, even if routed through a digital camcorder, would not be in AVI? 3. What is the format I should keep my files in for future editing - AVI or DV or mpeg? 4. How does all of the above relate to capture od digital footage from my DV camcorder?
