    Capture VHS with FinalCutExpress (USB)
    I am attempting to capture VHS source material into Final Cut Express. I am connecting my VHS player to my MacBook with an EasyCAP DC60, but FinalCut
    isn't finding the device/connection. Please help! Thanks

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    EasyCAP isn't officially supported for OSX, someone has however reverse created a windows driver ported from Linux... Linky Link: EasyCapViewer ?*bentrask.com

    Hope this helps

    Thanks! Evidentally, it is a driver issue...I downloaded the OSX driver, and the video shows up in the viewer, however there's no audio.

    Suggested A/D Converters
    Could you suggest a good A/D converter for Mac (prefer under$100), specially which Final Cut will recognize? Thanks

    I'm no expert on the A/D side of things but here is a forum with a thread that could be useful to you...
    Mac OS X Audio • View topic - New Pro Tools rig - A/D solution ??

    Hope it helps
