    Transferring Video8 to Final Cut Pro

    I have Video8 format tapes recorded on a Sony TR511E and am looking at buying a Sony DCRTRV320 to do the transfers to Final Cut Pro on my Mac. Would this work? Please help!

    Re: Transferring Video8 to Final Cut Pro

    Hi, I'm new to this forum after discovering it on the web through google...

    Knowing nothing on the models, I looked up the specs on the user manuals online and I'll make the assumption that the CCDTR511E model is analog and the other one is digital. I imagine what you would do is a device to device transfer over analog, and then use the IEEE firewire (digital) interface to go from the DCRTRV320 to the Macintosh. Everything else is fairly straitforward as the Final Cut pro handles the DV capture quite well. Some models of camera's I'm told support trasport device controll over the firewire and others do not. If it does, all that means is that you can use your computer to start, stop, and rewind the tape. If it doesn't then it is a matter of pushing 'play' on the DCRTRV320 device and 'record' or 'capture' on the Final Cut Pro DV capture utility.

    Hope that helps.

    Canon GL2 does a good job of converting from Video8 to DV.
