Here's the tools: P4 1.6 60 gig HD 512Mb RAM 64Mb Radeon AGP w/ comp video capture, comp/SVideo output **WIN98se** Video Wave III Premiere 6.0 What do I have to do to get video quality in my captures? I can't seem to make 640x480 AVI captures without losing frames, and they're bloody huge. 320x240 AVI is lower storage but doesn't look like videotape. What codec settings should I use to keep my videos looking like video and keep file size to a minimum? This computer should be powerful enough to handle high-quality scans, and I am trying to edit hours of family videos, and my Dad is looking for a possible retirement hobby. Thanks all!!
