Capture and import : Capturing analog video
Capturing analog video
When footage is captured from analog sources such as VHS, S-VHS, Video-8, or Hi8 camcorders/VCRs, it is converted to a digital format that can be read and stored by the computer. Before capturing, choose the desired file format to use for saving the captured video in the Options Panel’s Format list.
To specify the type of video source you are capturing from
1 In the Capture workspace, click Options and select Video properties.
2 In the dialog box that opens, you can customize the following capture settings:
In the Input Source tab, choose whether you are capturing NTSC, PAL, or SECAM video and select the Input source (TV, Composite, or S-Video).
In the Color Manager tab, you can fine tune the video source to ensure good quality captures.
In the Template tab, choose the frame size and compression method to use for saving the captured video.
