Sorry if this topic keeps getting brought up and for this basic question but I’m struggling to find straightforward answers online. I haven’t been in this zone for a few years, and tech has changed since the firewire days, which I can’t believe feels this old school already!
What’s the best setup to get a 1080 video feed
• out of a DV camera (DV / S-Video / Composite / FW400)
• into a mac running vdmx
• and output to projector,
with the lowest lag and cleanest picture as possible?
I found this thread but there’s different ways people are using it… I’m wondering if anyone can recommend a good setup for what I’m specifically trying to do?
I can’t find my FW400 > DV cable so I’m waiting for a new one to arrive… Would that not work? (i have a ‘classic’ macpro w fw800 ins). To be fair I think I only used that to capture to tape in FCP7.
I’m also seeing cheapy USB things I can only imagine being super laggy and crappy.
Can someone give me the lowdown so I can get freshened up on this?
