    Does anyone know how I can use 2 firewire camcorders on a mac?
    Does anyone know how I can use 2 firewire camcorders on a mac?

    I want to be able to switch between the two cams so I can show different angles in a live webcam type stream.

    I've seen the Belkin Firewire Hub and wonder if this will work.

    I know it enables multiple camcorders to be plugged into my mac, but how would I switch scenes..... live?

    Thanks

    Specs:
    MBP/2.53GHz i5/4GB RAM/500GB HDD/15" LED Screen/Intel HD Graphics & NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
    What programme would you be using for the live webcam? You might be able to select the video input on the programme.

    Its called "justcamit lite"

    I can only see connections for one main cam in the prefs

    Think I need a hardware switcher of some sort
