Is it possible to digitize all 400 vertical scan lines from a Hi-8 camcorder? I have several tapes, of my kids when they were younger, taken using a Hi-8 camcorder. I am ready to digitize these in to MPEG video. When I tried this a couple of years ago, my computer's video card was only grabbing 200 vertical scan lines. (ATI Xpert 98 with ATI-TV) It was also dropping frames. I thought I would try again after my next computer upgrade. Well, here I am with a Celeron 1.0 GHz WinXP machine with a funky M/B AGP video card. I am little overwhelmed by the purported number of ways to grab video these days. I suspect that one of these USB devices are going to drop frames, so I am unclear how to proceed. Looking at the ATI Radeon 7500 All-In-Wonder card, which I can only find in AGP (not sure this will work in my machine) the box suggests that it will encode MPEG-2 "up to" 700x480-30/fps. But will it grab/digitize at this rate and resolution? The only reason I paid extra (at that time) for Hi-8 over standard 8mm camcorder were the extra scan-lines (nearly SVHS, right?) thinking I could benefit from these come digitize time. I am struggling to take on enough learning to buy the most economical solution of getting my Hi-8 tapes digitized. From there, I'll make some VCDs. When I can afford it (and after I do some editing) I'd like to burn some DVDs. Any advice would be appreciated.
