Very stable and easy to use software. Much less hassle than iMovie and Adobe Premiere in my experience..
Just the app that I needed
This software is the easiest most powerful tool for converting those miniDV tapes to raw (or compressed) digital. I use a Mac, Thunderbolt 2, Firewiree 800<>400 converter, firewire, camera.
Other software programs did not always find camera, and then I would have to render movie. This does it all easy peasy!
1 hour of minDV RAW = 10 GB. Or you can compress. But I wanted to save my memories in highest quality.
I rarely leave product reviews, but appreciate how helpful LifeFlix was in helping me convert 100 hours of tape!
I found the software really easy to use worth the money for the workarounds and headaches it has saved me.
I bought a cable to connect a Sony Vaio to a Sony camcorder about 20 years ago but gave up as the results were useless. I was attracted to the trial version of LifeFlix importer as it allows a single complete import and edit. I have a mid-2012 MacBook Pro connected to the camcorder by the original Sony cable to FireWire adaptor.
I was so impressed by the results that I bought the full version as I have so many memories to share with the family.
The software splits up the longer recordings into clips which can be joined in the editing process. The only thing I would suggest if you have a really long recording, is to import in sections as the impact on system memory may cause a few ‘jumping’ frames. Apart from that I’ve been extremely happy with the software.
After checking current pricing on taking in my DV tapes to be "professionally" converted, and looking into other software options, I was happy to find LifeFlix. It is fairly easy to work. It seems a little glitchy on selecting files at times, and I'm not a fan of the way it stores them in a teared folder system- but I like the way it separates clips. I would also like to see improved import options in which when you click "Import" there would be an option that doesn't automatically rewind your dv tape to the beginning. It can be tricky at times starting at different spots on the tape when working manually. Finally, I like the HD conversion option. Good software, Not worth $100 - $50 seems more accurate.
LifeFlix Importer & Editor 3.5
Excellent product. Works as advertised.
It just works
Lifeflix does exactly as it advertises. Great to automatically get scenes for each tape.
