What type of connection are you using to do this? What is the exact model of the camcorder? Once I have more information I can assist you properly. Please don't request more assistance until I have the needed information.
Thank you,

    Macintosh

    Pixe VRF Browser EX

    This allows you to import the images recorded on DVD-RAM/DVD-RW/DVD-R loaded in the

    DVD video camera/recorder into Macintosh as an MPEG file.

    When importing an image, you can designate the import range.

    ImageMixer VCD/DVD2

    You can create a DVD-Video (DVD-RW/DVD-R) from the images imported into Macintosh

    using Pixe VRF Browser EX.
    First do you have the software listed above that is required to import as an MPEG?

How do I download video, if I can onto my mac?


  • You can connect the Camcorder to the Macintosh Computer using i.LINK interface.
  • The Camcorder has 4 pin i.LINK port
  • You can use 4 to 4 pin or 4 to 6 pin i.LINK cable depends upon the number of pins available on the i.LINK port on the Computer.
  • Once you connect the Camcorder to the Computer using i.LINK cable, you can use the iMovie Software to capture the videos.
Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Does the sony DCR-HC20 supports Macintosh computers? i have this camcorder and i recently got a new mac, can i find drivers for this camera and drivers that are for mac??


You shouldn't need drivers for this, just start iMovie and plug in via a 4pin to 6pin FireWire cable, then power up the camera
iMovie will offer basic control of the camera to import the footage as QuickTime files.

I have a Sony HDR-SR1 with video on the hard drive. When I connect it to my iMac via as USB cable, I can see the camera on my desktop, but can't seem to import anything via IMovie. What am I doing...


It is a Hard Disk type Camcorder. Follow the steps as mentioned on the Link given below to transfer the video from the Camcorder to a Mac Computer.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C455202


NOTE: Movie player applications must support MPEG-2 for standard-definition video or AVCHD for high-definition video to open and play these files. Refer to the software manufacturer of the movie player application you are using for additional information and any available updates.

The Apple Macintosh Web site offers MPEG2 Works 4 Advanced 4.2 for download.

The Apple Macintosh Web site has an MPEG-2 Playback component for Quicktime 6 or 7 available for purchase.

Troubleshooting information about importing MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 clips with Apple iMovie software is available on the Apple Macintosh Web site.

For the Apple Mac OS X operating system, DVD authoring software (Capty DVD/VCD 2 ) and MPEG editing software (Capty MPEG Edit EX) is available for purchase from the PIXELA Web site. These applications are for standard-definition video only.



Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cant import vids onto imovies on mac from image mixer 3


Mac's camera editing only goes as far as iMovie. Importing more footage is almost impossible. You may be able to find a few back routes though. Hope that helps.

Imac and downloading video


Though I am not familiar with this camcorder, it probably creates an MPEG4 file. To get it into iMovie (depending on your version of iMovie) you may have to convert it to something that iMovie can understand. Try opening the file with a free program called MPEG Streamclip (www.squared5.com). If it is recognized, export it to either Quicktime or DV. IMovie should be able to open one of those.

Can't download video to macintosh from the canon zr100


Unfortunately, it looks as if you may have one of the macs that just doesn't want to co-operate. If the FW cable is brand new, i highly doubt you've got a defective cable. After doing a Google search, Canon knows of this problem and hasn't offered any real support or a solution. I could only assume it's the camcorder and not the mac. Give me another day or so and I'll get back to ya, I'll see if I can borrow my friends camcorder and try to get it to work on one of my other macs. 
In the meantime, try opening imovie , connect the camcorder while it's off, turn it on and set up imovie as if you were about to capture ntsc footage. Next play the tape in the camcorder and see if imovie recognizes it then.

Downloading to Macintosh


Hello! I guess you cannot download a video from your Sony DCR-TRV22 to iMovie not unless you have to capture it first. if you gonna capture a movie from your handy cam you need an appropriate software and then load it to iMovie so you can edit or whatever things you want to do with it. And be sure that the extension file name of the movie is .avi, cause it is how iMovie could read it.
