There are two sets of plugs on the VCR. If you need to change any switches, make sure you disconnect the firewire cable to remove power from the unit first. Both do essentially the same thing when it comes to analog to digital video conversion.

arvc110 So there it sits. The ones on the front, which are the wdvc110 colors but don’t say anything. And, the Canopus manual may be deliberately vague on this point because perhaps some users use a program other than iMovie which works differently, or a later version of iMovie may have a different format? That aside, you need to have iMovie or whatever NLE you’re using open if you want to capture any footage.

Given that the Canopus ADVC Manual is written by Japanese monkeys with no understanding of the workings of either the English language or the converter, I’ll state step by step what I have done so far and maybe anyone who actually knows how to use the device could tell me what else I need to do. At least sdvc110 are not entirely heartless! Thank God when I went to Applications the other day to check, it was still there but I had no idea there was a way to keep it on the dock.


Helpful answers Drop Down advc1110. Even the Tin Man had a lot more heart than that.

Maual course that’s some PC deal adding still pictures to audio but still makes me want to hurl things. Computers and anything manula man-made can have problems.

We are hoping these materialize and he can keep his business. Still, the ADVC does everything it says it can do. Another concern was because it wasn’t on the dock, I was afraid it might have disappeared, as one person on the Apple Support forum said theirs did, but that was when another version of iLife or something took out their old version and didn’t put in the new one.

I think the iMovie manual is digital, not printed–so instructions can’t be checked while working unless printed out. Well, I did that much, but was confused I think by memories of capturing audio only.

The ADVC unit connects to all analog and digital video cameras, decks, and editing systems. Anyway, the kid just clicked a button to “auto-adjust” the photo -if the ad copy is to be believed at all. I have the VHS tape cued up to where to start converting.

In later versions of iMovie, you can edit video out of your project, but it remains on your hard drive, taking up valuable room. Final Cut isn’t easier than iMovie. From reading your posts here it is clear you are not technically oriented by any stretch of the imagination. The last month or so has seen us recording many i I don’t remember every step except that there was something tricky about it the manual didn’t go into, which is one reason I haven’t tried it in over three years and therefore don’t remember except that there was some difficult little detail of which the manual does not inform the user.


I’m pretty sure the Firewire cable connection is right, based on the facts that the ADVC lights are always on when connected, and I got material from my video camera to the computer before. If you are using an AC adapter, then you can use either a 6-pin to 6-pin firewire cable or a 6-pin to 4-pin firewire cable connected to the front of the ADVC Your cable should have yellow, red and white plugs something like this.

And although Canopus doesn’t officially support this feature on the ADVC, we figured we’d give it a try anyway. If the panes remain empty, then you are not capturing anything.

Still, if you need AC power, Canopus offers an optional power supply.

Nor are we aware if Canopus or Grass Valley will continue to allow this awesome feature to keep working. I was going to set the switches to the default position to begin with and hope for the best.
