    Hi,

    My mac pro lacks a video in/output (i have the 7300 graphics card).
    Upgrading my graphics card is no option for me. My sporadic use would not justify such an investment but i like to fiddle around with video now and then.

    I still do have a functioning MiroMotion DC30 PCI card in my old G4 though.
    Is there a way to get this card to work in my Mac Pro?
    I know this mac does'nt use PCI cards anymore but i wondered if i could get it to work with some converter maybe.

    All suggestions are welcome.

    Does it have a Firewire port? If so, you can capture DV, HDV and DVCPro HD via Firewire for use in iMovie, FCE or FCP. No need for a "video in," which no Macs come with anyway.

    Off course, Mac Pro has firewire ports. I just don't have camera equipment with firewire-out ports, just video-out.
    And then i still have no video-out from my mac.

    Are there other (affordable) options?
