    Specs:
    iMac 27" late 2009, MacBook Pro
    Converting VHS-C tapes to digital
    Hi all - new to the forum, so please forgive me if I'm a bit clunky! I have a load of VHS-C format tapes and also a fair number of mini DV tapes that I wish to capture and edit using Adobe Premiere Pro CS 6. I have a late 2009 iMac. Can anyone tell me if I can run these tapes from my old camcorders (both Sony with Firewire output) straight into Premiere Pro without any conversion process in between?

    Any answers much appreciated

    Depending on the specific Sony camera I would say probably. I have an old Sony that uses mini-DV tapes that I have done FireWire import into iMovie. Never tried it with Premiere.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Thanks very much for that. I think I might be ok with the mini DV toes, but I'm not so sure about the older VHS-C. I shall give it a go.

    Sorry - I only joined the forum an hour or so ago. Didn't realise what forum I was in until I posted.

    Thanks for the guidance.

    Not a problem. That's why I moved the original post for you.
