    Hey guys, my parents have offered some money to convert their old vhs tapes to a dvd and edit them. So I bought the roxio easy vhs to mac software and usb capture thing that comes with it. The only options i have are either high or standard video capture, but the format is still mpeg-2.

    Final cut express won't open the file so it kind of makes the device useless.

    I'm going to return it and get the elgato video capture that outputs in h.262 and mpeg-4.

    What I'm asking is : Is there a way to import the .mpg files EASILY
    (without taking a couple hours to convert a whole vhs copy of an .mpg file)
    so I don't have to return my current product?


    Thanks guys :)
