Capture Options

Recommended Posts

So my only computer that I have that can take a fire wire input for my vx2 is my old mac book but it is like really slow. My main computer that I use doesn't have a fire wire port on it. Is there any thing like a usb to fire wire that I could pick up for my laptop ? kinda like a converter or something

You can't use any type of adapter for capturing mini dv. Its impossible.

i haven't heard any for windows, but i use a thunderbolt adapter for my capturing and it works fine
