Hello all, I pored over the forums and I did not see this question in any discussion topics.

I have a Canon Vixia HV40 camcorder that uses the mini digital cassettes. It does NOT have an RCA output.

It does have several multi-pin outputs. I have not purchased Roxio yet because I am not sure if it is compatible with my camera. I simply want to put the many cassettes of my grandkids onto DVD's. If this is a good route to take, thanks for your input. If you know of another way to get the footage onto my computer, great. I do not have any place on my PC to put  PCI input hardware. Thanks for your feedback. Please excuse if this has been addressed and I did not see where to find it. I am new to this site. Madeleine (aka flyinferg)

You don't, or should not, import the video, from your camcorder, directly to NXT 3, but you do use it to get the video to your computer. You transfer the video,from that camcorder,to a folder on your computer, via firewire. See page 81 of your users manual for the information that you need to transfer it to a folder, on your computer.

You would then bring that captured video,into NXT 3 VideoWave, for edtiting.

Life is good!

The Firewire (1394) is only for video output to a TV that accepts or a used with a Computer Capture Card and Software that supports it. Roxio does not support that type of capture...

 

Your camcorder does have an RCA cable however it can only pass SD Video. But it also has both HDMI as well as Component cables and both of those do HD Video ;)

 

But in the end you still need something to Capture with!

 

Compare some cards as well as Roxio's GameCAP HD Pro. (The RGC would still need NXT to make a movie)
