Hi guys. Not sure which forum to put this in really.

I'm looking to buy a camcorder....nothing high-end. Just maybe a MiniDV camcorder for now. But I'm looking for something that will allow me to record video direct from my computer.

Let's see if I can explain.....

What I want to do is record video from my computer, like game footage from BF2....directly onto the camera. I hate using programs like FRAPS because of the HDD speed and the lower framerates. Is there a nice, consumer MiniDV capable of this? Does anyone have any experience doing anything like this?

I have a Radeon 9800-Pro All-in-Wonder card which has an S-video out. I know I can route my video through it as I've done so with a TV.

I'm looking at this Sony DCR-HC32 MiniDV Handycam

Looking at this camera's user's manual it says it comes with an S-video cable that it shows one could connect to a VCR that would connect to the camera's I.Link input port. I'm assuming this would allow me to do what I want.

I guess I'm just looking for confirmation or maybe suggestions or warnings from anyone here.

Thanks for the help.

due to the way videos are rendered, you're not going to have much luck with this. Sorry.

I wouldn't do that period. Just use the computer.
