Four Special Cases Live Camcorder Recording iMovie is also happy to capture video straight from a camcorder that doesn't contain a tape. In other words, you can use your camcorder as though it were an iSight, sending whatever it "sees" directly into iMovie, live. Figure 4-8: When you move the Camera/Edit switch into the Camera position, you'll see a tiny down-pointing tri- angle next to it. From this pop-up menu, choose iSight. At this point, the Monitor window shows what- ever the iSight camera is "seeing." Click Record with iSight to begin (and, later, to stop) recording. The video arrives in the Clips pane just like any other footage.
