To run Tachyon+ gear into your computer you will need a analog to digital convertor.
- GRASS VALLEY CANOPUS 55 or the 110 Model
- SONY DVMC DA2
- BLACKMAGIC DESIGN INTENSITY
- MATROX MX 02
Cheaper options will work but the ones above are known to be good quality.
There are other options too if you have other connections (4K, VGA, etc).
While you can run the T+ gear straight into the computer and get results, a TBC rackmount will greatly improve the capturing.
One of my favorite ways to capture is to send out the T+ gear (with 2 outputs) into a computer and a CRT TV at the same time. That way you can capture on the CRT TV with a digital camera while capturing in the computer at the same time. This will allow lots of possibles in post for blending. Each capture will have its own atmosphere.
Editing analog video in post on a computer is where the fun really begins. Using effects and blending different captures will help create visions unseen.
Another way around is to put your digital art on a DVD.
Run a DVD player into the T+ gear and… have fun!
