My review of the Roxio Game Capture system. With a brief look at a guide to settings, for those thinking of getting the roxio game capture and not quite sure.
I realise the final output is not HD before anyone says anything, however it does upscale the image nicely, giving the best overall effect you can get for a sub £80 or $100 unit.

Under 'SOURCE'/ OPTIONS / GENERAL'
TV Standard: NTSC_M (this is down to your own set up though, your sellection may well be different, go through each untill you find the correct one for you, until the display look right in the capture window)
Under 'SOURCE'/ OPTIONS / AUDIO INPUT'
Device: Line (Roxio GAMECAP)
Input: Should show as greyed out
Then from the capture screen under SETTINGS select AVI (you can choose DivX if you wish, I much prefer AVI for versatility though).
Leave the rest of the settings to default.
EDIT AND SHARE SETTINGS:
Creating a new production leave set to 'widescreen 16:9'
Once you have your video clips in place and are ready to create the finalized video use the following...
go to 'OUTPUT' in the toolbar and select 'EXPORT as'
Save your production if its not already saved (in case of system crash)
in the 'MAKE MOVIE' pop-up choose the following:
Under 'PURPOSE' leave as 'ALL'
Under 'VIDEO FILE QUALITY' select 'DivX HD 1080p@30FPS'
Leave 'NORMALIZE AUDIO' unchecked unless you have audio volume level issues with your video.
Choose a file name and output folder
Then simply 'CREATE VIDEO FILE'
Then wait an hour or two and your done.
These settings work best for me and are what i use for my videos, experiment to find what works best for you :)
Also why not do what i did and use a 10 second snippet of a clip, with this 10 seconds test each render type to see what you like best. By using such a short clip it will take no time to render each type!
