Excellent software

Imported all my DV tapes to my mac painlessly. Needed a minor workaround to import audio from the canon camcorder.

Chuck White (Clermont, US)
Simple & efficient video import tool

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.

Transferring Mini DV tapes to computer

I found LifeFlix OK but I couldn't transfer the audio as well as the video. I don't know if this is a camera idiosyncrasy or LifeFlix. I have now borrowed a Sony DSR11 from a friend and am able to capture video and audio perfectly

Easy as pie

Great program with nominal need for literature review. Very intuitive and without issues upon implementation. I have already transitioned from iMovie. Utilized Sony camcorder without incident!

Onne van der Wal (Jamestown, US)
Copying mini DV tapes to my Mac.

Works like a champ even though I have to use the work around due to the Canon/Mac thing. perfect! So simple to set up and use. Thanks!!

Good Option

Trialed LiteFlix with their free option to check compatibility.
My handicam was not recognised and despite good help from their support team have been unable to rectify the issue so now looking at a video capture device.
Thanks for your help.
