Capture betaSP/digi using G5
August 06, 2015 03:55PM
Hello to all,

I have several Beta SP and Digibetas I would like to capture and make into Quicktime files. I have two Final Cut Pro systems, the first I use on a daily basis:

iMac system, 10.8.5, Intel Core i7, 3.4 GHz, 32GB w/ a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX, Promise RAID, FCP 7.

The 2nd:
Power PC G5 2.3 Ghz, 5GB, ATI Radeon 9600, 10.5.8, FCP 6.0.6, ATTO Express PCI UL4S, used when working with archival footage from SD shows.

Can I add a card or external box to my G5 or the iMac so I can connect to a beta deck? Would any other modifications need to be made? Since I edit daily on the iMac I'd prefer to use the G5 for the capturing station.

Thanks so much!

Six weeks have passed without your getting any answers. I JUST saw this. Still looking for capture solutions for your old G5?

You should be able to get a bunch of stuff for next to nothing on eBay as most folks have long moved on.

If you are still interested let me know and I can help you shop a few solutions.
