I am running 10.6.8, have a 2010 imac 27" with 8gb ram
I want to start importing my video footage into either imovie or FCP connecting an old VHS to my Canopus ADVC-100 and then the Canopus to the mac
I am guessing i just need a firewire converter or something? Can someone advise which cable i need?
The Canopus has the small and normal firewire ports of the past (see manual here: http://finearts.uvic.ca/sim/equipment/manuals/_av_convert/advc100.pdf)
I haven't had any need for this new firewire port on the back and wondered if i invested in a firewire converter it would work or whether the hardware is too old for the imac?
Sorry if this is a daft question
