      hi all

      quick question. Someone wants to record video directly from camera into
      iMovie. I know you can do this via built in camera, I'm pretty sure you can
      do this via FireWire (but there seem to be no low end camera's that come
      with firewire anymore), can you capture directly (live) via USB 2 into
      iMovie? Have had a look around but have failed to find a reliable answer...

      help and collective wisdom appreciated.

      an appropriate closing

                      external video camera that captures straight into iMovie. It is for the
                      recording of circus performance auditions and they use it live in the

                        I know iMovie06 would let you record from any video source. It can
                        still be downloaded: http://goo.gl/ScbK

                          Normally firewire in, though. That's the problem, many cameras/laptops today
                          don't have that firewire port. And the usb webcams don't have viewfinders,
                          zoom etc that one takes for granted on a regular camera - meanwhile, for
                          reasons I've never been able to fathom, camcorders just don't stream video
                          out via usb.

                          So, one can use a USB capture device, yes? However even that is fraught with
                          problems, for instance, say, the only USB device the latest version of
                          Livestream's Procaster client will recognize is the Black Magic Intensity,
                          which in turn will only work with USB 3.0 , which itself only is implemented
                          on a few not cheap laptops because it uses a different Intel chipset.

                          My own workarounds for live streaming have included mounting a separate
                          webcam on the top of the camcorder that I am taping on. My current set up
                          consists of feeding composite signals out of a couple of camcorders into a
                          $20 Radio Shack switcher and then an Avermedia
                          Gold<http://www.amazon.com/AVerMedia-MEZUSBGDR-DVD-EZMaker-Gold/dp/B000J5GZDC>USB
                          capture device. This works with an older version of Procaster, or
                          Flash
                          Media Encoder - and presumably would work for iMovie too.

                            ebay for $99 (it went for $800 three years ago). Nows the time to
                            stock up on old quality hardware before they stop selling it and the
                            stuff gets too beat up.

                            What I have just started using for this purpose is a Toshiba Camileo - there are two versions the H30 with 5x Zoom and the X100 with 10x Zoom. $135 - $155.

                              $155. Running on battery or mains power not only will they capture HD
                              (albeit in an a ridiculous x.264 in an avi wrapper format that has to be
                              converted to edit) onto SDHC but also they have composite 'tv out' - which I
                              feed into my cheap switcher. The downside being that, as soon as one plugs
                              in the tv, the viewfinder switches off so they only work for static shots,
                              but very handy..
