    Hey guys, i know this is kind of hopeless, but im giving it a shot. For one of my classes I need to make a sort of movie documenting a historic event, and my brilliant idea was to use halo to make it. I have no experience in this what so-ever, so can anybody here help me?

    I would be using Halo 3, so the forge and theater might come in handy. And also, has anybody connected thier xbox up to thier mac? That would also help alot.

    anyways, its a long shot, but thanks in advance.

    You have two choices, really.

    a) get a capture card and ouput the 360s video out to the capture card in order to record it (best quality)

    b) use a camera and do it that way off the tv screen (worst quality)

    I don't think that you'll be able to use a capture card on the Mac, hell I don't even know if any VIVO devices such as that exist for Mac but I'm sure someone here would know if there is such a thing.

    Windows support - you're golden there, no problems at all.

    Wait, I thought you made a Halo 2 video of your l33t skills a while ago? Killing all them folk with the sniper rifle without zooming.

    Heh, I thought it was you! nevermind. Yea. A capture card is what you need. But you can get EyeTV devices for cheap now. I don't know what the latency will be like if you're recording the game but it would definitely work.

    Elgato makes the EyeTV for capturing video on a Mac.

    I love google, unfortuantley I have found nothing about how to do it with halo 3, and for halo 2 it is in very limited detail.
