Backing up minidv/hdv tapes to digital help

(1/5) > >>

AndrewEp17:
I have a lot of mindiv tapes i want to back up digitally and i was wondering if any body has a method to do this. One of my cameras has HDMI output and i used a capture card to record from the camera to my laptop and that works. But obs which is the software i was using to record (its what i had installed already) doesn't have a lot of resolution and file formats options to save to. Does anybody here know either a better software to record with or a better method entirely to do this? Thanks.

Edit:I edited to fix typos because i wrote this on a phone

Isn't there any option to adjust the settings?

There were options to change the resolution but i couldn't choose the framerate or file format. I might have been in the wrong part of the software but it's been a while since i used it so i have to check again.

miniDV and DV cameras usually have a firewire output. That's the easiest way to transfer tapes to a computer. Even if you don't have a firewire port on an accessible computer, firewire cards are pretty cheap.

I think I've tried that with a pcie card in my computer but either i used the wrong software at the time or the card was faulty but i don't think i got it to work.

Do you know of any good firewire cards?
