I have an old video Camara (Panasonic MC20) that uses the old VHSC (Pal) type of cassettes. The camera has the yellow (video) and white (audio) out plugs (female) to transfer the video out of the camera. I can successfully connect the camera to a modern TV through this out connections. I have around 30 VHSC (Pal) cassettes from my family that I would like to archive and edit.
I would like to transfer the contents of the cassettes to my MacBook Pro (Mac OS X Version 10.7.5) in order to (first) archive the videos and (second) edit the videos with Final Cut Pro.
- Can I use the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for Mac? I do not want to directly create a DVD from the cassettes, but to transfer the contents to my hard drive in a compatible format with Final Cut Pro (example mpeg4, I believe) to edit it afterwards.
- The pictures of the connectors of the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for Mac (on the web) seems to be "female" type. In my camera I have "female" connector; thus, I would need "males" connectors to connect the camera with my laptop. Is this available? Is there any adaptor from "female" to "male"?
- From the information about the program, it seems that it is possible to edit the contents in iMovie. What about Final Cut Pro? Is that also possible?
Any other suggestion for my enterprise?
Thanks a lot for any help that you can give me. Regards, Inigo
