Is there an older version of LWKS that supported import from Firewire that could be installed to enable import from miniDV tapes?

How far back would I have to go for a PC? How far back for a Mac?

According to the user guides, the V10 public beta, V11 and V11.5 could import using firewire.

And answering your second question, I don't believe that there was ever a version for the Mac that supported firewire.

Thank you. I will search for an older exe download.

If I can’t find an old exe file for the older versions, are they currently available from LWKS?

I don't know - they could be. If you have no luck I'm pretty sure that I have some squirrelled away somewhere. I'll see what I can find.

I'm not sure if you'll have trouble registering it or not. I can't recall the point at which the current licensing system was introduced.

A fire-wire card for one's computer would also be required - they mightn't be an easy find. Have to face it - Firewire is very much a legacy format.

We used ScenalyzerLive 4.0 software - which read the live Firewire DV stream and wrote an .avi file from that. That software is no longer available.

Back than we did quite a lot of DV work - it was the favourite child of docco makers - we also used it on some TVCs. A major problem was the fragile nature of particularly the miniDV tapes - they simply did not survive production level shuttle/search/play - so there was never a 100% guarantee that if on-line editing from DV tapes - every shot used in the edit would be accessible from tape.

On anything serious - like real-people-testimonials in TVC production - shooting was on DV tapes - then they were all dubbed to DigiBeta as a post production source format.

Back then we had a Sony DSR2000 with SDI I/O - some of the results looked pretty good - if the camera person knew their craft - that deck is long dead. We still have a DSR45P with component I/O - that model VTR is not too shabby either - ours has about 8 hours on the heads and is pretty unlikely to ever top that.

If you use a Windows PC, AVS4YOU utilities can capture from firewire and record to MPEG2 for editing.

onlinehelp.avs4you.com/avs-video-recorder/index.aspx

You can buy the whole suite of utilities right now for just $59 lifetime license including all future upgrades.
Well worth the investment. Lots of useful problem solvers.

I use it to transfer footage from my old Canon GL2 tapes on occasion. Mostly use it now for transcoding audio formats. It does a great job of converting 16 bit audio formats to 24 bit 48kHz PCM for editing.
