    I have a Sony TRV480 camcorder and I trying to convert VHS tapes into iMovie 5.

    I know I can copy the old tapes to digital tape in the camcorder, but can I bypass this step and record directly into iMovie? Sony is no help.

    Is there a site/source that gives me step-by-step instructions to this?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Well, it appears that your TVR480 does have a DV/Firewire interface, so you should be able to use it as a digital passthrough source.

    Here's a Macworld article about going from VHS to DVD. You should be able to just stop at the iMovie part and be all set. Here's the link
