    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Product 14 Dec 2011
    By Tony
    I purchased this product not just for my own personal use in video grabbing and editing but in my line of work, I must work with quite a bit of CCTV footage, often having to grab it in realtime from the device. This product works perfectly for that. I also have to analyse and edit multiple cctv sequences into single pieces of work and the bundles Studio software also does a fantastic job of this. The tutorials that are included are very intuitive and quick and you are up and running in minutes.
    As for regular use, I wouldn't consider myself a video-phile or anything like that but I find myself creating more and more professional looking outcomes the more I use it and with the right amount of attention it would appear that a total novice can create very impressive videos from this. Would definitely recommend

    Now a retired granddad, I bought this product to fulfill a promise to the children (very grown up now!) of converting lots of old family 8mm and Hi8 video tapes into a modern medium that they and their children can now watch and laugh at. My Win 7 64bit computer is kitted out with editing software already but it lacks any capability of capturing analogue video from an external source, hence my purchase of this product. I bought mine about a year ago but here on Amazon it's now available at a very good price. My experience of opening it and using it for the first time is documented on Youtube titled "Capture analogue video with DAZZLE hardware". It was simple and excellent at performing the one task I required but the package contains a lot more that I have never used. Lots of research indicated that it may perform in an uncertain way if used with Vista. Hence you will see that I installed it on an old XP laptop. After several days of extensive use I can confirm that it works fine and captures good quality HD video to avi files. I then transferred those files to my more powerful editing pc for editing and compiling into a DVD. I did not test the editing software supplied so my 4 stars represents "excellent for my purpose". As mentioned in other reviews it does not come with any cables but a quick trip to Ebay will solve that for less than £5. Footnote. Its been out on loan to several friends performing similar family duties.....all report trouble free use.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great... at what it does 24 Jan 2012
    OK. I've had this product since christmas and it is a good product.
    I am a youtuber so am speaking in the sense of recording ganeplays from the xbox.
    It is a good product if u have the patience.

    I'll talk u through my process of recording FPS gameplay.
    1.Insert dazzle having downloaded the dazzle and pinnacle studios HD, open pinnacle and switch your xbox on.
    2.Click import, and a preview screen will appear, likely saying "no signal" even though its on dazzle
    3.(the bit most people don't know) On the xbox, go to system settings, display settings, PAL, and change to PAL 50. This can't play FPS's though.
    4.ON pinnacle, On the right of the import screen click dazzle, on the bottom of the window that pops up, click from PAL to NTSC
    5.Start capturing while on PAL 50, then on xbox switch to PAL 60, it will stay on the preview screen but in black and white
    6.At this point u need AMCAP, open it, ignore the pop up message and go to options on the top bar, Capture filter, SECAM B/C.
    7.Look at pinnacle, it should in colour. Do what u want to record on the xbox. Once u finish unfortunately, u have to restart form step three =(

    The product is good and the routine does become easier when your use to it.
    However here are some things u need to know:
    1.u need the xbox AV cable with component cables combined. If u only have a normal AV cable, it is better to get 3 AV splitters, it will let u hear from the TV too then. It will not work without one of these.
    2.If you are youtubing, most channels or directors refuse gameplay not in hd, i know. This product is deceptive as it's labelled HD, When you read the small print from the box, HD if recorded from a HD camara ONLY! If you want xbox gameplay, it is in SD (Standard Def.

    Hope this helps. =)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great product 13 Dec 2011
    As a first review on this, I feel privileged. So it does all it says it will do, so a great product. I've not had any freezing problem that were reported on the Dazzle Video Creator standard product. It does record in SD not HD quality from composite video source and the stream can be viewed from the software or VLC which is great for watching TV/Videos on your computer. The HD quality as advertised seems to be within the Video creator software only so you'll need your own HD videos to produce a HD movie. Its a shame there is no HDMI input option for this product, it would be great to record your own videos in HD.
    The software package you get does everything I needed, crop video, transitions, export videos and makes DVDs and renders in a reasonable time (my speed was about 15mins for a hour). The tutorial guides you through the functions of the software. You will need a video cable from your source e.g. a Scart or 3 RCA cable to a 3 RCA plugs to use this product.
    I have a 64bit Win7 with 4gb RAM and needed plenty of the hard disk for the video files.

    5.0 out of 5 stars It's everything it was described as.
