Capturing from your iSight with QuickTime!

This is a very useful tip to use QuickTime Pro as a quick and easy capture application. It can be used to capture from any camcorder hooked up to your computer with Firewire. What is even better is that if there is no camera hooked up to your computer, you'll automatically
get the video from the built-in iSight. Even though I often edit movies in Final Cut Pro, I think the QuickTime interface is so much simpler for capturing. To use it, you simply have to go to "File" and choose "New Movie Recording". A window pops up where you are ready to
hit "Record" and capture the video from any camcorder or from your iSight.

That's a terrific tip. It's nice to be able to capture without all the baggage of other programs. Thanks!

you can also record video through iMovie, which is nice if you don't have pro

Another quick way around this is through a program called Sofa Control. To use Sofa Control, you must have a remote for your mac. Once you have gone through the small set up, the program allows you to completely bypass "Quicktime Pro's" restrictions.
