I have a collection of DV tapes I want to capture, and I have an old DV camcorder for playback, but I don't have a firewire port on my MBP. I was wondering, will the adapter work just like hooking up a stright firewire connection, i.e. will I be able to control playback & capture through Premiere? Anyone have experience with this?
This is the adapter:
(As a second question, does anyone have a recommendation for some sort of external capture box with RCA or S-Video inputs that will connect via USB3 or Thunderbolt? I also have some old VHS and VHS-C tapes I want to capture).
