No, because it makes no sense to have it. Capture is a digital transfer of data and it is not possible to modify the data stream during transfer.
If Matrox has that worthless capability, it only shows they have spent their efforts not where it matters in terms of stability, but on completely useless eyecatchers.
I realize the meters don't matter in the capacity of changing or affecting the audio levels; I just like to be able to see how the levels are while the footage is being captured.
I won't argue with you about Matrox. The few things I like about their hardware/software are way outnumbered by the headaches they cause.
I have edited with some Casablanca systems and you can monitor the audio and change levels while you are capturing via firewire. I though that was kind of nice that if I knew it was a little hotter than I wanted I could capture the whole tape at -5db, or you could sit and watch it if you wanted to and adjust as you go...
Can come in handy...
You can't do this with either CS3 or CS4, but it has been an oft requested feature. There are instances where it would be nice to have even if it is a digital transfer. For example, if the levels are a little to low, by increasing them during capture, you can save doing that step in the future.
So, again no is the answer, but we're aware of this feature request.
Since Microsoft has announced that Win8 or Win9 will be using a 128 bit kernel, I rather have Adobe put effort into a 128 bit version, than these requested features. CS5 with full 64 bit architecture and possibly 'optimized' for 128 bit and CS6 with full 128 bit architecture would be at the top of my feature list.
