Loading video from Vixia F100 to Mac computer

Hi,

I recently purchased the Canon Vixia F100 camcorder. A disc was included in the package to load videos to PC but there was no software included to load videos to Mac computers. How can I load videos to my Mac laptop (Mac OS X, Version 10.4.11)?

Thanks for your help!

How do I download videos from Canon Vixia HFR10 to my Mac?


If you have Final Cut (most versions can do this), File, Log and Transfer, (make sure your camera is on, connected via usb, and in the display mode), after files finished loading, highlight the files you want on your computer, and select add selection to que. TADA! I really hope this helps. If you don't have final cut, I'm sorry, but I do not know. :/
