To transfer video/audio footage from a Digital Video (DV) camera to your computer (importing):
If you want to capture live video from a DV camera directly to your computer then refer to the section Capturing from a Digital Video Camera.
Video Edit Magic imports from a DV camera and saves the output as high-quality DV AVI format. This format takes up a lot of disc space. Depending on the output size, a typical 15 minute can take over 150 MB of disc space. The Capture tool therefore displays updated information about the drive's available disc space and used disc space.
