Arrow A newb question

Hey all,

i'm about to purchase a Miro Studio DC10+ video capture card for my parents their old Hi-8 cam (analog) (which is gonna be mine hehe).

Now i was wondering, can i do cool stuff with it?
Like can i film stuff and add my own Maya models to the film? (would be wicked:P).

Or am i limited to what the gvin software gives me for effects.
So to make a loong story short,
what exactly is possible?

I also have the DC10+ and you can do whatever you would like with it but not with that crappy Studio Software thats bundled with it.

When you have the DC10+ installed, you have a special DC10+ hardware codec that you can use. So when you export your movie in any videoprogram do it in this codec (check your manual for resolutions and other settings) Then import it into Studio and export it to tape.

I don't use the DC10+ anymore, because I use Windows XP and Pinnacle Systems still has no drivers for XP. And also because I'm using firewire for export now.

hey Jean-Lee i'm into after effects for a long time now, and visual effects in general and the one imortant tip i can offer you is, if you're gonna add one of those 3d models you did make sure you put the camera on a stable place and use as little motion in the camera as possible if you have to move it, beacuse later on you'll have to go deeper to tracking etc etc which are a real pain in the ass..

as for sites with tips try http://www.creativecow.net/cgi-bin/...=cowmunications
yet if hope has flown away in a night or in a day in a vision or in none is it therefore the less gone? all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream..::edgar allan poe
