Hi,

I have a load of old Hi8 tapes I need to digitise.

I have a couple of Hi8 cameras and have S-Video and RCA audio plugged into a EasyCAP av/USB 2 gizmo.

It shows in Win 10,1909 Device Manager as AV to USB 2 and I can capture via a NCH Capture program called Debut.

I want to use 365 if I can so it goes straight to time line but I can't see it anywhere.

In Capture it does not register at all.

Is it because it is analog and will not work or ?

Thanks

oz

It's not really possible to capture analog video over USB directly into PowerDirector.

Instead, use the software that came with your capture device to save the video as a 1920x1080 30 fps MP4. After you capture the video you'll be able to edit it in PowerDirector.

StevenG supplied the best answer. In these type of analog capture devices, it is the Capture/AnalogTV button that is highlighted. You click on that button and should be able to capture from PD 365 only if the device is powered up and connected properly, and then only if the gizmo device driver is windows 10 compatible.

Hi8 video is best captured at 720x480 interlaced.
Even better using lossless codecs especially if you plan on fixing anything. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)
Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/
Canon Vixia HV30/HF-M40/HF-M41/HF-G20/Olympus E-PL5.
Tape capture using 6 VCR, TBC-1000, Elite BVP4+, Sony D8 camcorder with TBC.
