Re: software for Mac application lost

Your Mac video program should have or be able to download the appropriate driver for your camcorder when you want to capture the video from it. I have been using Final Cut Pro with no problems with the Canon Optura XI.

Hello, I want to download video clips from my Optura 50 tape onto my mac computer, and I have various adobe software applications available like final cut pro

You will require a firewire cable to connect to the Mac. Usually a 4 to 6 pin cable, the newer Macs use a 9 pin version.
iMovie will do the job as will Final Cut.

Hello, could you advice where I could purchase Panasonic NV-GS150 DV Camera MAC OSX 10.5 Support? I cannot connect my Panasonic NV-GS150 DV camera with my MacBook Pro. Thanks a lot for your help!...

Panasonic usually includes the Mac software program "Imagemixer 3" that imports the videos/photos you have on your camera. If the software isn't included with your camera, try Googling around for the program and it should come right up! I hope this helps. - Omn1cide

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.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Deleted Files?

First things first: DO NOT take any more photos or videos with your digital camera (memory card) that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.
Then here are some software programs that may help you out.
For Windows --> Data Recovery Tool
For Mac --> Mac Data Recovery
Here are the steps:
1. Connect your camera (memory card) PC or Mac which has installed the recovery program.
2. Scan for the lost files (photos, videos etc).
3. Recover them.

Software for applemac

Hi, Well, congratulations on the new Mac upgrade.
You will be pleasantly surprised to hear that there is no mac software for any video camera.......
Because all the necessary software for any and all digital video cameras is built right into the MacOS and the iMovie application and the iPhoto Application.
So, all you have to do is connect your camera to your Mac, using the cable that came with your camera, either firewire or USB turn on the camera and then launch iMovie and the Mac will automatically recognize that a camera is connected and it will ask you if you want to import...
Voila Fantastic merveilleux hooolala !!
