[quote=tp3813;2041573]Having recently bought a Canon HV10 HiDef camcorder I am surprised by the lack of software for actually capturing HD.
Bought Pinnacle Movie Box which included Pinnacle 11 editing software, which is supposed to be suitable for HD- but looks like it only supports editing- there is no capture!
Find all this rather annoying having paid a lot of money for HD and now cant capture! Its like buying a digital camera and you cant download pics- utterly useless!
I have now gone back to using normal DV mode!
Anyone know of some free HD capture software?[/quote]
That’s strange. I have Pinnacle Studio 11 and it can capture digital video (via Firewire). According to the website (here)
[li]Capture from DV and Digital8 camcorders or VCRs (requires a FireWireÂ® port on your PC)
[/li]> [li]Capture from analogue camcorders, 8 MM, HI 8, VHS, SVHS, VHS-C, SVHS-C, or VCRs (NTSC/PAL/SECAM). Requires DirectShowÂ® compatible graphic board or TV tuner board with analogue (Composite or S-Video) inputs on your PC[/ul][/li]
