Chapter 7. Importing Footage > Importing Footage from an Analog Camcorder

Importing Footage from an Analog Camcorder

The process of importing footage from an analog camcorder in iMovie is much the same as when importing from a digital camcorder. However, you need a go-between device that converts the camcorder’s analog signal to digital information on the Mac. Products such as Dazzle’s $250 Hollywood DV-Bridge (www.dazzle.com) feature a FireWire port for connecting to your computer and RCA-style inputs for connecting to your camcorder; some devices may also include an S-Video port (Figure 7.6).

Figure 7.6. Analog-to-video converters enable you to use a non-digital camcorder with iMovie.
