Chapter 11. Make an iMovie > Don't have digital video?

Don't have digital video?

You can get a special converter box, such as the Sony dvmc-da1 or dvmc-ms1 av adapter, that will convert 8mm, Hi8, vhs, or svhs format to the dv format. This converter box has standard s-video and rca input/output ports for video and audio from your media, with a FireWire or i.LINK port (mentioned on the opposite page) so you can send the movies in to your iMac and edit them in iMovie. If you use a converter box, though, iMovie will not be able to control the camcorder like it can a digital camera.

Check the Sony web site at www.sony.com or a local video electronics store for more information about the converter.
