    Poor video from Elgato video capture
    HI, I am transferring all my old analog 8mm video to my MacBook pro.
    I am using Elgato video capture.

    The system is very easy to use, but the darker shots are almost black when downloaded.
    I can see through the camera's view finder that these shots are not that dark.

    I can enhance the images using iMovie, but the quality is not very good.

    I am probably going to return the Elgato and try something else.

    Any ideas?

    Also of note...when a clip ends, the quality goes up as the picture fades out...odd!

    Elgato Video Capture
    regarding the elgato video capture and dark conversion - go into the preferences and you can increase the brightness level. You can also change the contrast which may help a little with blown-out highlights.
