I'm building a new PC and would like to know if The Elgato HD 60 card will allow me to import analog video from old VHS tapes directly into the PC via PP 2020. I have a VHS player that upscales to HDMI. 

I have 30 years worth of family videos that I would like to capture, compile, edit and export using Premeire Pro and all of it's features. I realize Adobe probably can't recommend certian brands, but I'd rather ask than do trial and error installing and re installing different cards 

Thank you

john

They stopped making TBC since no one uses analogue tape anymore. You might have a TBC built into your VCR that would work. That being said if you are using an HDMI output from your VCR (I never seen a VCR with HDMI) it will be digital and should have some type of TBC already done.

Are you sure the Intenisty Pro 4K device will capture old VHS tapes without a TBC? I image it will work OK capturing from HDMI for the OP but for anyone wanting to capture from S-video or composite I don't think the BMD products will work. I know the Intensity Shuttle needs a TBC to caputre old VHS tapes. The video below will demonstrate what can happend with out a TBC. The ADVC 110 does not require a TBC as demonstrated in the video below.

I'm not certain that the Adobe forums are the best place to ask this question, since it's hardware related. However, since you're also asking about Premiere Pro, we'll try your question there and see if someone has advice. Lots of tech savvy people on this site. You could also try a site like Tom's Hardware, which is a good, general, all-purpose site that deals with hardware issues and recommendations.

You will not be able to use Premire Pro to capture the videos. You might not be able to import them into Premiere Pro either. The cheap USB video capture cards are hit or miss. I used the crazy methods in the video below although it is not as good as the Canopus ADVC 110. The ADVC 110 works great but I think OS X and Windows are stopping support for Firewire/OHCI.

You will not be able to connect a VHS VCR into that card at all. That card has a digital-only input that's only compatible with game consoles.

 

Note that the HD 60 PRO completely lacks any analog inputs at all.

Thanks for your reply. My VHS player upscales to an HDMI output which I intend to input to the HD 60 PRO. Hopefully I can capture witout dropping frames and keep the audio in sync

I use a company that converts the tapes to MP4.  They import into Premiere without any problems.

By @Andy 1968

That's why I keep an old computer around to capture from my Canopus ADVC 110 with HDVSplit.

I do have a couple of Windows 10 computers with Firewire, but a Windows update could potentially kill HDVSplit functionality or the Firewire at any time, even with Leagacy drivers.

If you buy it, go to Support Center | Blackmagic Design and download the latest Desktop Video package since the one provided in the box is older.

It's a Magnavox 4 head VHS to DVD recorder. I'll be experimenting with both the analog out and the HDMI output. Thanks again
