    So, I am running parrells with Sony Vegas.. My problem is parrells does not support FireWire.. If I get an adaptor from FireWire to USB would that work? Need FireWire to import video from a Sony HVR-Z5U camera...

    There is no firewire to USB adapter. Your best bet is to use bootcamp and run windows natively. I've used Sony vegas to transfer some files over firewire this way (I have Vegas Studio 10 running Windows 7 on my MBP).

    As a side note. Why not just import into FCP7 or maybe FCP X on the Mac side?
