There are many ways to pick up extra change from your VT. Perhaps you could tape a wedding thru contacts at your church ? Or canvass the area businesses to see if they have need of a commercial or product demo. It really is pretty easy to make money from your box, it just takes a bit of salesmanship.

Another thing you can do is make up business cards and give them out to everyone you meet.

Unlesss someone has a used VT3 software suite laying around to sell you will have to go to VT4. Buying new there is no VT3 or VT4 option. It is all VT4 now.

Ask a local business to sponsor the upgrade or do some VHS to DVD conversions to get the $$.

Work for it, don't beg for it.

If you were asking for a donation to feed the hungry or build a well in an African village so children wouldn't die from waterborne disease I'd ask where to send the check. Church business comprises a large share of the professional AV market. In a way, church business has created the current AV market. Without it, most retailers, installation contractors and manufacturers would not survive as their business model has been fashioned to serve this very market. You do not need an upgrade to do God's work, you have everything you need in VT2.

That, and someone's older copy of VT3 software should not work with another card since it has previously been registered to a particular VT card already. That's kinda the point isn't it?

Save your money, check Ebay, VT4 is really the right solution with the hardware you have. Lotsof Luck..

I have to agree here with the thought that if you can't find the $450.00 or so to do the software upgrade legally then I gotta think you are not a serious video producer. Church or no church. Legal is what we are talking about here. Maybe get another church that has an A/V budget? And 18 grand already sunk in your VT2. WOW. How'd ja do dat?

Get a job man. One small video job would pay for VT4.6 and with change left over.
