It occurs to me that with the VT and SX-8 it would be possible to capture from two sources simultaneously. If one were to connect two betacam decks, say, then it would be possible to capture rushes from both of them simultaneously. If that is the case then it would be a huge selling point as most editors I know spend a long and boring time pulling in rushes at the beginning of every job.

Is T3 batch capture clever enough to keep track of multiple decks?

I far as I have seen Batch Capture will NOT work on two decks simultaneously. Could be wrong but I doubt it.

You bring up a very interesting point though... I never really thought about capturing 2 streams at one time to speed up the editing process. I think I will go try it tomorrow and see what happens.

I think it does if you set your PCI prefrence to 66Mhz
