The free trial allows you to import one tape only.
A simple Mac app to import, share, archive, and edit video footage from your old camcorders. Support for MiniDV, HDV, Video8, Hi8 and Digital8 (D8) tape formats.
There is a known issue with Canon camcorders and LifeFlix. The audio will not be imported if you simply click "Import". To learn how work around this limitation please go here.
Free one time worked fine with limited access to controls does what it’s designed to do .
I used iMovie to capture on old dv tapes and due to degradation of them, the time tracking was off and I lose audio and every tape was cut into many tiny parts that don’t necessarily connect. With Lifeflix, it’s not perfect but I’m able to capture greater length of video, greater amounts of audio, and am able to retrieve tender moments once again that I presumed were lost. Thanks Lifeflix!
The software was very helpful to me, I imported some 50 DV tapes. It would be nice if the filenames would contain the timecodes. Perhaps this could be a future option.
I was able to digitize Hi8 video footage via a SONY EV-C100 and SONY TRV30 MiniDV and download in real-time directly to my Mac. The TRV30 digitized the Hi8 analog signal and transmitted it to the Mac via Firewire and processed by LifeFlix. Works great!
The application works well regarding capturing the dv tapes. It however is not possible to close the application with the menu item. Have to always force quit this application.
I had 400 hours of raw interviews from a WWII documentary I produced. They are on DVCAM tapes and I needed to digitize them, but FINAL CUT didn’t recognize the video players anymore. So glad I found LifeFlix DV importer. Works great.
One of the best I’ve seen! You make the setup (one time), and than just click the button and it works! Excellent!
Imported all my DV tapes to my mac painlessly. Needed a minor workaround to import audio from the canon camcorder.
Kinda overpriced for what it does, but it does import, organize and allow super-simple edits...and is much more reliable than iMovie (at least at importing direct from external sources), and works on my old 2009 PowerMac. Works well with Sony Hi8 camcorders.
