I just ran an experiment with iMovie and Videator to record from a consumer DV camera and the iSight in my MBP laptop. One stream went to an external drive while the other went to the builtin drive. The result suggests it works fine.

I doubt you could do a whole 8 hours. I susspect you'll hit some hard size limit. But perhaps you could record 2 to 4 hours. You'd likely have to experiment.

Also Videator is not the right tool as it can't export it's format to DV at the correct framerate. At least NTSC. I kept telling it to use 29.97 and it kept setting my export to 30fps.

The other site for possible answers would be the forums at lafcpug.org which is a group for FCP users.

P.S. Are you this Paul Lynch?
