I have been a rank amature video user since the mid 90's using various ULead software, I have now up graded to Corel VideoStudio Pro Editor for my software platform.
In the 90's I had a video card which gave me a panel on the front of the pc for S video plus. this was great as there was no need to keep plugging bits and pieces into the rear of the pc.
So I am now looking for a card which comes with a front access panel which supports 1394 fire wire access, usb and HDMI, 1gb memory. Dual rear out put. I may be asking a lot for £200 but I can stretch it upwards for the right card if needed to around £500.
