A bit shaky, I found this video tutorial after a perusing the machinima.com forums. The Hauppage HD PVR seems to be the solution to my latest video capture quandary production tangent.
From the Hauppage website:
There are three H.264 formats you can choose when recording a video:
- .TS, which is a generic ‘transport stream’ compatible with many digital media players
- .M2TS, which is compatible with the Sony Playstation3
- .MP4, which is compatible with the XBox360
Seems to be the quickest, cheapest way to get HD video capture of Assassin’s Creed 2 out of my PS3 and into FCP. I think I will need to boot my MacBook Pro using Boot Camp Windows XP to control the Hauppage. I’ll let you know how it works out once I pony up the cash and get to play with it.
Or I can spend $189.50 and capture the HDMI signal straight in to FCP as Apple ProRes, but not sure how that would work for playability. Hrmmm…
