I have what used to be an awesome video camera that uses Mini-DV tapes.
Camera still works and it has a firewire output. I'm hoping to use this to my PC rather than analog outputs to a device like this http://www.amazon.com/Elgato-Video-Capt ... roduct_top
Anyone worked with Windows Movie Maker or alternatives to capture video at high resolution from a camcorder? Since the tapes are digital I'm hoping to get to the video data with as little degradation as possible. I've messed around with things like this on and off but now I need to do a good job on these and convert a fire safe completely full of tapes to digital before tapes degrade or my camera breaks.
