Recommendations for Mac Video Output? - Mac Applications & Software

Hi I'm looking for advice for an inexpensive PCI card (for a dual 1.4 gHz Powermac) to output NTSC composite or S-video, so I can record directly to VHS. Nothing fancy needed, this will be it's only use other than displaying on an external TV monitor. Thanks for any help. Replies also at com...

    Default Recommendations for Mac Video Output?

    Hi I'm looking for advice for an inexpensive PCI card (for a dual 1.4
    gHz Powermac) to output NTSC composite or S-video, so I can record
    directly to VHS. Nothing fancy needed, this will be it's only use other
    than displaying on an external TV monitor.

    Thanks for any help.

    You don't say what you are trying to do...

    If the original source file is in iMovie AND you have a digital camcorder
    you can plug the firewire into the camcorder then attach the VHS to the
    S-video or composite of the camcorder. Set the VHS on record then send the
    video to the camcorder and it should simultaneously go to the VHS.

    Not on my Sony TRV-120 camcorder. I have to dub it to Digital-8 first,
    then play the tape back to record to VHS. Anything plugged into the
    camera's video input/output jack overrides the firewire connection.

    I can pass-through VHS video to digitize input via firewire, but not
    pass-through output.

    Still looking for a video output card...

    If you mean the Dazzle Hollywood DV Bridge, that sells for $200-250. As
    I stated in my original post, I'm looking for an inexpensive PCI card
    for output to NTSC only...don't need og-to-DV input features.

    These cards are available for PCs for under $50...anyone had success
    using them with a Mac?

    the Bridge is your best bet.. ALl of your files will be DV. NO special
    codec. You aren't going to find a $50 bridge.. which is essentially what you
    are asking for.

    I'm thinking about getting a DVcamera and may want to save some things
    on VHS. Then I would best get a DV to og converter? Will iMovie
    work with it? How about reverse, I have some old video 8 which I'd like
    to transfer to disk will that work.

    Anyone have recommendations on a Dv Camera? I'm looking at Sony and
    Cannon. Thanks

    I'm a complete novice with the DVideo stuff.
