Hello

I would like to transfer video from my Mini DV camcorder via firewire and edit with Adobe Premiere 6.5 (so I would like to stick to capture cards which are compatible with Premiere 6.5)

I have a Pentium 4, 1.4 processor

Can anyone recommend a cheap capture card? I'm not looking to spend a lot if I can avoid it.


Thanks in advance

I am not sure that I understand your question. If you are capturing DV through firewire, you don't need a capture card. You can try capturing with DVIO or DVapp (freeware programs) and importing the DV avi file in Premiere.

That's correct. All you need is a firewire card (a cheap OHCI compliant one), provided that you don't have onboard firewire. In the latter case you need nothing...

I don't use Premiere but I imagine that you can also capture from Premiere. But if that doesn't work for some reason, you can try these other programs.

I use Premiere for everything, including capture, and I have no trouble using a simple FireWire card. There are no "Premiere not compliant" cards, as far as I know. As long as your camcorder is "on" before you start Premiere, it finds the capture card.
