Wondering if anyone else in here has run across this issue before... I am using a Sony TRV-480 camcorder's pass through function (av-dv) to import a home movie. It seems my new copy of final cut express wont work with my av to dv pass through camera. I called tech support and they suggested I use iMovie to upload the movie then export it to a quick time movie. then import it into final cut express... This sounds like a lot of work... Has anyone in here had any luck with resolving this issue? Thanks.. or.. how is iMovie.. I have 30 other tapes to go.
