General - Question: Using Hitachi DVD camcorder files with Apple’s iMovie and iDVD

   
             
     

How can I use my Hitachi DZGX3000 series DVD camcorder files with Apple’s iMovie and iDVD?

     
           
             
         
   

General - Answer

   
             
     

Apple’s iMovie and iDVD were not designed to work with MPEG files which have become popular with the invention of DVD and HDD camcorders like the Hitachi DZGX3000 series.

Pixela’s Capty MPEG Edit EX can convert files from MPEG-2 format (used in the DZGX3000 series) to Digital Video (DV) format so that you can easily import your files into Apple’s iMovie and iDVD applications.
