"IEEE1394 Support In LiVES And Kino My JAD box includes an integrated standard 6-pin IEEE1394 port. The camcorder takes a 4-pin connector. I bought an overpriced cable from Staples, hooked it up to the camera and the computer, then I fired up LiVES. I was pleased to discover that the FireWire interface worked perfectly out of the box. I loaded no drivers and made no adjustments to any configuration files. I plugged things in, turned on the camera, selected the Import From Device dialog from the File menu, and everything just worked. Sweet.

"The Import From Device dialog includes a transport control panel (Figure 1). With the panel controls I can operate the camcorder to play a recording through its viewing window and grab any or all of the video to LiVES during playback. The resulting DV files can be loaded into LiVES or any other DV-capable video editor for further editing and processing."
