I have read your review and I think it is not entirely correct. It is true that if one has "stopped & started recording numerous times as I did, LifeFlix creates new“ scenes ”meaning it will not be one continuous file / clip but numerous clips." But you don't need to use Final Cut Pro or IMovie. Lifeflix already has the right tool to solve the problem both in the first import phase and also later. Just highlight all imported scenes and then hit the "combine" button. One will get one file only in one scene. What is certain is that if during the recording with the camera you used the "fade in & fade out" these parts will continue to exist. One can also do one more thing. You can keep the original import and then create "one new tape" then with the "Import Movies Files ...." button select all the scenes of the original import from the LifeFlix folder. Once imported, select them all again and press the "combine" button and we will have a single scene. Once this is done we can then also transform this single scene in HD, if the originals had not already been transformed. Advantage of all this? The advantage is that we will have the original import with all the scenes and that will allow us to do all the subsequent edits that one wants and, at the same time, have another "tape" with a single scene that will flow smoothly and without interruptions. That's what I'm doing. Only warning: when one has imported all the scenes (if they are really many) he must not transform them in HD before having transformed them into a single scene with "combine" because in doing so the program stopped me and canceled the import.
LifeFlix DV Importer is straight forward. It recognized my camera no problem. Converting footage to HD does make your footage look better, but keep in mind, the resolution of footage shot years ago is less than what it is now, that being said, for the most part you will be happy with the result. One big note. On your Hi 8, Digital 8 footage if you stopped & started recording numerous times as I did, LifeFlix creates new “scenes” meaning it will not be one continuous file/clip but numerous clips. To attach all your clips together you will need Final Cut Pro or iMovie for Mac. Overall I am happy with how my footage looks, I just have tons of individual “clips” for each hour long tape I downloaded.
This app fulfilled all expectations after a number of compatibility with Apple IOS Moterey problems were solved.
I have now imported 20 digital DV tapes onto my iMac.
I couldn't get LifeFlix to recognize my Canon Vixia HV30 camera on a MacBook Pro running Monterey OS. Today (08.31.2022) I downloaded the new free version of LifeFlix and it worked perfectly. Thanks for the fix.
I am very happy with this app. It makes importing miniDV files a breeze. The interface is also intuitive, the tools easy to utilize. Easily the best $100 I've ever spent on a video app.
캠코더에 영상들 다 mp4화 하려고 많이 알아보다 이프로그램이 유일무이하다고 생각이듭니다.
After my switch from Windows to Mac, I had to look for a new video editing program.
DaVinci Resolve was the best choice for me. But, unlike with Pinnacle (Windows), I couldn't upload a Mini DV anymore by the program itself. I couldn't find a program that transfers my tapes well until I found LifeFlix. What a fantastic tool. I can archive my old movies, and also get them divided into the correct timeframes.
A rescue for a lot of personal history.
LifeFlix was very helpful in asisting me to download my digital video tapes to my computer. I managed to download over 80 hours of tape with very few issues once I learned how to use the app. Not sure what the Editor 3.5 is but my main focus was securing all of our precious memories which was successful.

LifeFlix saved my life! I've been trying to figure out a way to extract my mini DV's into an older iBook. LifeFlix was compatible with my system and it was off to the races! 30 mini DV'S later finally digitized!! Thank You!
