Film Transfer update 23

Finally figured it out and things are moving along quite well. Have a new rig, for lack of a better term, setup for the import and editing process.

  • My Mac
  • My recovered Western Digital Firewire drive
  • iMovie ’08

Here is what I’ve done and/or am doing.

  • Copied all .dv files to my ext. hard drive
  • Imported all .dv files into iMovie

Next step will be the edit and organization for burning to DVD. The way I’m planning to do it is to keep each separate in editing and exporting, and just burning a bunch of them to dvd with menu choices. I think it’s going to work out fine if not terribly time consuming.
