A quick Update on the PS3 Home machinima creator

There’s one question that keeps being asked about the new PS3 Home Machinima tool, and that is - how will users actually capture the video?

I’ve heard from a few people now, and it appears that, barring some miraculous tool popping up on release, in order to create any video using this tool, you’ll need to use an exterior capture device to capture the video from the PS3.

HDMI capture cards like the Blackmagic Intensity cost about $200 minimum, so that puts a pretty hefty pricetag on using the software at all.

I’m guessing we won’t see too much use of the Home Machinima setup unless something changes- pity.
