Create VCDgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
I have a Sony Digital 8 video camera with connected to my PC using a firewire port. I am able to succesfully create VCD's, the only problem is I have to take a extra compression step when using the ULEad software and I have not been able to find anything that will capture to Mpeg1 format on the fly from the video camera. The most annoying part is for a 60 minute video the compression cycle takes 12-13 hours. The machine I am doing this on us a dual 550mhz with 256 megs of ram, it appears that Ulead doesn't know how to utilize both processors. Does anyone know of a way I can capture directly to Mpeg1 format so I don't have to go through the extra compression step, if now how about a program that is multi-proc aware?

Hi, try the ATI All in Wonder Pro Graphic Card. This card is able to record in mpeg1 and mpeg 2 directly! (if you have a pentium II higher than 450 MHz). If you edit your material in ULEAD Software first, you must use two computers to get the job done in realtime: Play the DV-File on Computer One and Record in MPEG1 or 2 on the second computer. Rainer

I use Dazzle DVC to capture my video to MPEG-1 at real time full motion video, it ready to burn to a CD.

Does anyone have true comparisons of the All In Wonder cards and the Dazzle along the lines of VCD creation. I'd like to see creation in MPEG-1 from the same source and burned onto the same media. I really don't know where to look for this kind of comparison.
