Ok, total newbie here, never recorded anything, but... 😅
Anyone doing this have a tip for a great HD stream capture program/software, that doesn't cost too much ?
I really prefer something that is installable totally OFFLINE
(no stinkin' activation or other 'retro-preventing' doo-das 😒)
To be used with a WDM capable device.
Want it to be able to capture live highdef(albeit lowres at times) image coming in from source computer(vga cable) - to some 'raw' format, and then encode it into some space saving HD like format, as well as more universal stuff like mpeg1/2 and avi. (pref in 1024x and higher)
Of course nice if could encode on the fly(other than divx and lowres mpeg2), but I guess only the $1000+ programs do that ?
Easy to use would also be a plus, but beggars can't be choosers, so... as long as it works and don't make me eat noodles for months, I'll cope.
Haven't actually tried any yet, but I believe FRAPS or VirtualDub would work to some extent?
How about the more commercial ones - how good or easy are those ?
(SonyVegas, Pinnacle, Cyberlink, others ?)
The user reviews all seem to be rather biased one way or the other, so...
I'm thinking maybe Cyberlink P(but if it only has limited encoding options it would not do), if I can get a cheap copy somewhere - this is an offline product, right ? Only serial code etc needed ?
A great one(and prob overkill) would perhaps be "Streampix", but my wallet would need a heart transplant after that.
Or maybe this one?:
But the 2GB file limit may be too small for raw avi?
(how many minutes would that be I wonder. 10-20?)
PS: why/when would one need a 'deinterlacer' ?
