I\'m about to start writing to video, and would like to know how people are doing this. I\'ve never done it before. So far I\'m planning to get a video capture card, either analog or digital. I\'m going to capture the video and import it into Sonar 2.0. I assume \"capture\" just means I press play on the source and record on the video software, and I get a file on the computer.
Is this the way people usually do it? Or do they have the video on a separate screen/tv?
Any suggestions? I imagine it shouldn\'t be too complicated, but as we all know things are usually more difficult the first time.
I know I need to get a big hard drive too.
if you are working with people who are editing the video on a computer, they may be able to send you an AVI or MOV file of the video on CD/DVD. Then you can convert it to a lower resolution but same frame rate and import it into cakewalk or another sequencer and score along side.
thats how I do it.
this way I can send them an audio file(s) that is sync\'d perfectly with the video they send.
atleast this is the way I work, but I may shift and sync video on another computer with good video playback hardware so I can project it on a TV and score that way. Just sync the video playback to SMPTE or MTC.
I jsut cant jsutify another computer jsut for video playback. Its stupid. If I build another computer its going to be for giga!! Which I\'m doing as I type this [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
