Hi all,

I just got a new iMac and I need to take out video signal to my camera (export video from iMac) am creating a video tutorial for using MacOS and I need to capture in TV format 720x480 NTSC.

Some one told me that I can make a firewire port as video export signal but am not sure if that is true.

Thank you for your comments.

Regards, :eek:
