Should I Buy This Product?

Question

I just upgrade to Mac OSX Lion. I am using iLife '11. I have been reading reviews on this product at amazon.com and now I am leary to purchase. Does it work well with Lion? I have both a MacBook running 10.7.3 (Lion) with 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB memory, and a MacBook Pro with 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB memory running 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). I have also built a virtual machine that runs windows as well. But I only use that for work. I prefer to work in the mac world. So should I buy this product? Will it run correctly for me with my specs? I have probably 20-25 Mini DV tapes that I need to transfer to DVD. But I don't want to pay someone else a ton of money to do it. Any opinions? I would love any advice I can get. Thanks in advance.

Do you still have your DV camcorder? If so you should be able import those tapes to the Mac without having to do an analog-to-digital transfer. The miniDV tapes are already digital so it's just a matter of transfer, not conversion.

 

That said, the new capture application bundled with the Easy VHS to DVD for Mac is a great improvement over the older application. So the reviews you read are probably based on the old version. The new one is called Roxio Video Capture and captures either as a h.264 MPEG 4 video or as an Apple Intermediate Codec video. The old version is called Easy VHS to DVD Capture and captures as MPEG 2 which is nice for quickly making a video DVD but not for much of anything else.

 

The new version is very good at the price. But you shouldn't need it.
