Hope someone cans shed a light on this. I want to download my miniDV
movies through a firewire inerface; I have all the hardware and the
ocmputer recognizes OK. Which is the best software for doing such?
and what are the factors that play in a great quality capture? and to
how much should I set it up? i.e. frames, etc?

Thanks much

DB

What are you going to do with it once you have it downloaded?
If you answer that question, the issue of what application to use
for CAPTURE may work itself out automagically.

Generally, DV is DV and there are NO options to set. This is not a
bad thing. "Capturing" DV essentially consists of a one-to-one
transfer of the DV datastream on the tape to a comptuer file.

I want to edit (frame by frame if possible) and burn it into a DVD or
VCD at the highest resolution possible

I like the simplicity of dvio http://www.carr-engineering.com/dvio.htm

The only options seem to be type1 or type2 dv capture, with (i think) type2
being the most versatile.
