i had an A4000T kitted out with a  Digital Broadcaster32Elite, and AD516.
i hunted for ages to get the soundstage to go with it, but alas. money troubles, and sold up the lot.
The DB32 captured each field of the interlaced frame at upto 320Kbtyes per field at 50Hz Pal, or 60Hz NTSC in motion jpeg format. you could extract the fields from the stream, and de-interlace them, then write them back as a full frame. usually using arexx scripts and something like ImageFX. to then re-bind the individual frames, and audio stream into an Mpeg stream took more hoursepower than my (at the time) 060 or PPC had, so i ended up farming frames out out to a PC over the network to re-encode. basicly a really nice system, but so underpowered for that kind of work. i think the soundstage had a set of DSP's onboard for real time effects rendering, and characture generation... *sigh* happy days...

The Video Flyer works just fine in A2000(T)'s also.  I assume it would work in A500 with Zorro slots too, although without a Toaster...

For PAL you can capture full motion video using a VLab motion card. There were also 2 professional cards released but those costed a fortune and are not very common (the Broadcaster32 and Elite versions).

Can't the Picasso-IV's video encoder 'Pablo-IV' make ANIM5/CDXL animations or even the 'Paloma-IV' TV tuner?

Surely there is a way to capture video... the old PCMCIA based ProGrab24RT could do it (if on a smaller scale) on A1200...

"Is there a way an Amiga can take streaming video off VHS for example and make an MPEG? Maybe an A4000 system?"
The only good way to capture video on an Amiga now is with the Video Toaster Flyer made by Newtek. It only works with a A3000(T) or A4000(T) but wont capture to MPEG (Newtek uses there own compression format Better then MPEG) but just stream that to a PC capture card and away you go.

Wow, cool!

The logo on the screen in the background takes you back a decade!

I have 3 VHS tapes full of Bad Influence recodings (people used to record the end credits for the data-blast).

I seem to remember the feature on the CD32's FMV cart, the A1200 playing Zool and cheats for Alfred the Chicken by NamRood (the backward DoorMan!)

Is there a way an Amiga can take streaming video off VHS for example and make an MPEG? Maybe an A4000 system?

@Mr A500..
The software is called Videomaster.. :-)

ahhh yes . . . online video editing.

Amiga used as VCR edit controller. Nothing to do with NLE, obviously. (was called Director cut or so)

It was an interesting way (A-B roll, mark scenes and so) to edit via vlanc or something.

What is that monitor? Looks like VGA/PC- type to me...

What software/hardware is he using for the video editing?

I connected a video camera to my A500 through DCTV, but just to capture still images.
