I have tried to look up the answer but the more I looked the more confused I got. So I decide to get helps directly. I would like to record HD video off the computer screen of my MacBook Pro. I found out I could record the video directly onto a Mini DV Pro camcorder, which supports resolution up to 720p and 1080p. But my school does not have a converter that will allow me to output signal from DVI to the 4-pin firewire port on DV camcorder. I am not sure if I only need an adapter as an interface conversion between Mac DVI and DV camcorder? Or I need a video format converter? And which model will do the job?
