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.

Which laptops support Firewire I bought a Sony camcorder model DCR-HC26.It has Mini DV cassettes. I ultimately want to burn onto DVD the footage on the tapes.Thinking of buying a laptop with firewire?

I have a Toshiba Satellite M65-S9092, and I really like it. It has 1 Firewire port, and I have no problems with my computer. You can add a firewire port to your computer if it has a PCMCIA card slot. Just search for 'PCMCIA firewire card' and you will find a bunch of them online or you can get one from your local computer electronics store.Most newer computers have them built in but it will depend entierly on the model#ALL Apple Macs have built-in Firewire, as well as built-in software to edit movies (iMovie) and burn DVDs (iDVD). Side note: Firewire is an Apple-developed technology, but it is an IEEE standard (IEEE 1394), also known by its standard designation and other names, including i.Link (Sony).You can also use a video transfer service to convert your miniDV tapes to DVD. StashSpace.Com has a free software you can use to import video from your miniDV camera onto your computer yourself with a firewire cable. Or you can send them your tapes and they will transfer them for you. Costs $7 per tape.


How can you get a video from a video tape camera to the computer?

You will need a firewire cable (not included with camera) to plug into your computer. Your computer will also need a firewire port, or else you need to buy a USB to firewire cable. There's too many variables to know how to answer this question, but basically the steps look like this: 1. Figure out what ports the camera has to get video out 2. Figure out what ports you computer has to get video in 3. Figure out what software you have or need to record video 4. Buy the necessary adapters and hardware 5. With cable connections made, play the video in the video player 6. With your video computer software, record the incoming video stream. EXAMPLE 1: I have the camera that created the video 1. I have a Canon Digital8 camcorder with a firewire port. 2. I have a Macintosh with a firewire port 3. I have iMovie 4. I have a Firewire cable 5. I hit the play button on the camcorder 6. I hit the import button in iMovie. EXAMPLE 2: I don't have the camera that created the video 1. I have a Canon Digital8 camcorder with a firewire port and analog video in port. 2. I have a VHS player with composite video out, and a Macintosh with a firewire port 3. I have iMovie 4. I have a Firewire cable and a composite RCA to 1/8" video/Audio l/r cable 5. I hit the play button on the VHS player, and send the video through the Digital8 player to convert the analog signal to a digital signal 6. I hit the import button in iMovie.

How do you convert Mini Digital Video cassette into DVD or computer?

You can do this yourself with your camcorder and a firewire cable on your computer or you can send the tape to a video transfer service like StashSpace.Com and have it converted for you (they charge $6.95 per tape). To do it yourself you need to import the video from the tape into a video capture software like iMovie, winodws movie maker, or StashSpace.Com's StashBox. Just connect a Firewire cable between the video source and the computer. You can edit the material in iMovie if needed. Then, from the Share menu, send the video to the Media Browser. You can then load the video into iDVD and create a stylish DVD. Full instructions for each of these stages are available from the Help menu in iMovie.

HOW TO VIDEO FROM Vcr to mac?

You need a digitizer or a DV videocamera. There are two basic types of digitizers: Firewire and USB. Most camcorder that have the mini DV tapes also have the jacks to connect to a vcr and a firewire cable (also called iLink) goes from the camera to the computer. You'll need to check your camera manual for how to connect it and how to start the process) Generally speaking, the camcorder circuits handle the analog to digital conversion and iMovie and other video editing software have an Import button that starts importing footage automatically. As for the digitizer approach....Here are some manufacturers who make the little boxes that convert plain old analog audiovideo coming from your standard VCR and pipe it into your computer via a Firewire cable: In no particular order: Pinnacle, Canopus, AVerMedia, Dazzle/Hollywood, Plexor, Elgato) There are tons of additional features on these boxes. Some have a TV tuner so you can watch tv on your computer or use your computer like a VCR to record shows. Others allow you to compress video without putting more work on your computer's processor. The basic components you need are Inputs: Composite and S-Video. Outputs: Firewire (or USB) Composite and S-video
