    I have a dual PowerMac G5 with Final Cut Express installed. Does anyone know if there is any PCIe video capture card that will work with FCE? I will need to capture and output video via composite. Do I need to get Final Cut Pro in order to work with any video capture card?

    I've been looking at AJA Kona LSe 12-bit PCIe capture card. but the specs only mention FCP not FCE.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...
    thanks!

    You'll need FCP or Adobe Premiere Pro to attach a Kona card. FCE is DV, HDV and some tapeless formats only. You could capture with uncontrollable device and a DV bridge device if quality was not a big issue, though. Here's a link to some: http://www.synthetic-ap.com/tips/firewireconverters.html

    Right, got it. I see now that FCE is really only meant to work with firewire. makes sense. thanks
