SGI 320 Video Capture question

Unread postby Jake_teh_fox » Sat Sep 01, 2012 7:41 am

So I just cleaninstalled an SGI 320 I got with no disks whatsoever with 2k, however I'm not sure how to capture video. Vidcap32.exe doesn't record sound, what's the best way to record video on it?

Is it me, or is this a duplicate question..? It seems to be in development discussion and video.

Before Win2k we had PAR/PVRs on WIndowsNT machines but I don't remember the brand names... Was a proper production house before turning to effects software. They even offered me an Indy in the mid 1990s for free, because "Windows is the future maaaaan"..

Got the SGI-propriatary VW320-specific drivers? Been a while, but the last time I looked there were some VW320 downloads available on SGI's Supportfolio site.

If you haven't already been there, SGI also has some VW320 info archived on their ftp.
ftp://ftp.sgi.com/sgi/320-540/ntvidindex.shtml
There still is some info out there regarding video capture:
ftp://ftp.sgi.com/sgi/320-540/uncompressed.shtml
and a clue as to which SGI-specific digital media modules (sgidmedia.dll, sgidv.dll, sgijpeg.dll, sgilivfw.dll, sgiqt.qtr, sgiqt.qtx, sgival.dll, sgiyuv.dll) and drivers (sgijack.sys, sgilivid.sys) were used by the VW320:
ftp://ftp.sgi.com/sgi/320-540/QTdates.htm and ftp://ftp.sgi.com/sgi/320-540/premfaq.shtml
Some of the VW320 drivers look to still be available on what's left of reality.sgi:
http://reality.sgiweb.org/grossen/vw320/
And there's also a few "win2k" ssk patches on SGI's public ftp:
ftp://patches.sgi.com/pub/win2k/
Looks like a number of the links are MIA, but there is a quicktime capture utility over in the programming examples folder:
ftp://ftp.sgi.com/sgi/320-540/examples/index.htm

There's also a few additional mentions of the VW here:
