Importing video from 8mm video cassette's to my macbook
Posted on 2007-11-19
I'd like to import my old home movies from the 8mm video cassettes to my macbook and then clean them up using Imovie, before burning them to dvd. I do see a lot of posts with similar questions, actually too many I guess, so I decided to ask my question directly instead.
I took a trip to the Apple store and the coverter they pointed me to was expensive and it appeared to be intended for appletv... I am leaning toward the converter because I have about 30 tapes to convert and I think I could leverage it later for pulling data from other sources. Perhaps it's possible to leverage my DVR for some of this, but I haven't seen any postings to that affect, so I doubt it..
I'd like to get an experts opinion on how to approach this.
