GO DIRECTLY FROM YOUR VIDEO CAMERA INTO QUICKTIME

There's a very cool feature that snuck into QuickTime Pro 7 that has kind of flown below the radar so far. It's the ability to record directly from your digital video camera (or a microphone) right into a QuickTime file, without having to go through iMovie, Final Cut Pro, or any other third-party application. Just connect your digital video camera (or even your iSight camera), launch the QuickTime Pro Player, then from the File menu choose New Movie Recording. A QuickTime window will open showing you a preview of what your camera is seeing. Now just click the round red record button at the bottom of the QuickTime window and it starts recording. Click the Stop button when you're done, and you've got an instant QuickTime movie. It works the same way for recording audio using your Mac's built-in microphone (provided of course that your Mac actually does have a built-in mic), but instead of choosing New Movie Recording, you'll choose New Audio Recording. Note: You have to upgrade from the standard QuickTime to QuickTime Pro to have access to this feature.
