  • First, you have to connect your DV camera to your Mac. This is simple. Your Mac comes with the FireWire cable you need, just plug one end into your digital camcorder's FireWire output (if it's a digital camcorder, it almost undoubtedly has a FireWire output), and plug the other end into your Mac DV's FireWire input. Then turn your digital camcorder on. When you launch iMovie, it immediately detects your camera. Now it's time to pull some video out of your digital camcorder.
