Chapter 3. iMovie > Connect a video camera

Connect a video camera

Before you can import video footage, you must connect your digital video camera to your Mac. If possible, it's best to connect the video camera's AC adapter for power while you import video footage to preserve the camera's battery power. Insert a video tape in the camera that has footage on it you want to import.

A video camera FireWire cable usually is a “4-6 pin” cable with a 4-pin connector on one end and a 6-pin connector on the other end.
