Video Capture Help... PLEASE!
I'm getting very frustrated with the windows programs available for capturing video. Before you say "Well don't use Windows" I will explain...
I initially captured a lot of miniDV tapes to my external with Kino using dvgrab but Windows wouldn't recognize any of the .DV files. So I decided to re-copy them with Linux again just putting them in AVI files instead and this worked.
The problem is the machine that I have linux on is no where near as fast as the box i have Windows on. It also only has one firewire port and Kino won't recognize my camcorder at the end of a daisy chain. Suffice it to say that wrapping the files in AVI to a USB device results in splintering and jittery video. So I'm wanting to use my windows box now I just can't find a program that has the basic functions of Kino.
IMO The best feature of Kino is it that will split the files every time there is a non-sequenced date time stamp. Most importantly it can name the file with the date time code from the first key frame of the file. I can't find any Windows programs that do this. Does anybody know of one that will?
I have Adobe Premiere Elements CS4 and Cyberlink PowerDirector and Adobe will only allow you to name the group of files coming from a tape adding a sequence number on the end of each split, PD won't even do that. I find it very annoying that such basic functionality would not be available from programs that are this expensive.
Would someone please let me know if you know a windows prog that will do this.
Thanks in advance...Wherever you go.... There you are!
