best way to capture DV and analogue?

currently im using an old DV camcorder and firewire card as a capture device from an svhs deck to pc.

is there a better way to capture these old tapes? and maybe some newer software as i think im using windv at the moment.

A better way is to capture your analog S-VHS/VHS tapes in YUV 4:2:2, 8bit, lossless (HuffYUV or similar), using a specific analog capture card.

AmarecTV is the best analog capture software.

If you are familiar with the german language or you can get it done with a translator, there is a great tutorial: https://gleitz.info/forum/index.php?...en-und-andere/

I personally am using a Canopus Edius NX PCIe card, as this specific card has a ProcAmp on board which might be usefull for some tapes.

Before that, I also used a digital8 camcorder which was connected via firewire. The quality was absolute crap, compared to the method in the link
