If you have an 8 mm camcorder can you buy software to make home videos on your computer from 8 mm tapes?

You need video editing software and a way to get the images into the computer. As an 8mm camcorder has only an RCA Composite output, this will require you to have a comparable input on your computer. You use the camcorder to play the tapes and input them into the computer. It will be necessary to purchase and install a composite video input card.
