A little vague. What do you need help with? Plug the camera in, open the software initialise the capture window. Log the clips in and out points, buy hitting in then out then log (allowing at least 3 secs around time code breaks). Select the clips you want to capture and batch digitise. If you are having difficulty locating the camera, make sure it is in VCR mode or that you have a driver for that type (google the camera type + driver download). If this is not the problem, do you have device control but can't capture....?

You will need to capture using a firewire cable.
If you are using a firewire cable and it does not work try another brand of cable as some have a reputation for not handling DV capture.

Macbook pro doesnt recognize the panosonic pv-gs9 when connected with firewire


I take it that your macbook pro has imovie on it. If you open up imovie and plug in your camcorder it should recognise the camcorder and give you access to putting the movie onto your mac. Have a look at http://www.apple.com/support/imovie/ it should help.

Panasonic PV-DV953 video transfer to pc


I think, yes have to work.
Because the RCA in a PC. is for capture AUDIO and VIDEO.
Of any source.
But you have to be sure they are INPUT.
And the respective program to capture video with. RCA inputs in your PC.

I have on my PC.. Video capture program with a security camera System. That work in the same way.

Just with a different program.

OK I hope this help..

Capture digital video using Panasonic PV-GS12 and USB


Here's what I learned. 1. Connect with FIREWIRE. It's all of under 10 bucks if you shop around. 2. Use WINDV to capture if you need to. Hint: Free. 3. Use better software than what comes with the camera.
