(Possibly cheaper, certainly higher quality alternative)
Install the required items. The BMD card(s) can go in any slot, as far as I know ''except'', according to some authorities, #3. You will have a graphics card in one of the slots, so that means you can have two cameras coming into this system via BMD cards. If you want to add any more, they'll have to come in via Firewire capture devices (for example). I have only tested this system with one BMD card. Once you have installed SoundFlower, look in its folder and you will see another app called SoundFlowerbed. Run this and also add it to your Login Items. Check that you see the little flower in the menu bar top right.

Wirecast is relatively expensive ($450US). You can download the trial version and see if it's for you, before you shell out. If you decide it's too much, you can do the following simply with a single BMD card. Capture video at 720p60 or 720p50 (see below) using either:
