I want to transfer video from my oldish Sony Hi8 machine and use editing software. I am currently using Videowave and Adobe premier. What is the best and cheapest way to go about this. I have looked at the Pinnacle Studio10plus. This is about £135 but outputs video in Motion JPEG. (That doesn't sound like a common standard to me.) I can buy an MPEG encoder for more money - but do I want unedited video to me MPEG? I can buy something like the Dazzle Hollywood bridge that outputs in the DV format- which seems like the best - but this unit costs a lot. Advive please?
