    MCF not finding my HD VCR

    Having just downloaded MCF, spent several hours trying to open DVCAM footage within the program - without success to this point.

    The user video pretty much glosses over the specifics of connection, and source doesn't reveal my camcorder. Figure it's got to be simple, but it's certainly not obvious.

    Can someone advise me please?

    I think he wants to connect -- firewire ? -- his vcr to mcf. I assume that's not possible with mcf.


    Also strange--dvcam is sd not hd.
