LifeFlix DV Importer software makes it easy to rescue all those precious memories trapped on MiniDV tapes. Attach your camera, click import, walk away! Then watch, trim, combine videos into your own movies, save and share.
Imagine those memories sitting in that drawer, weddings, birthdays, parties, vacations, baby's first steps... When is the last time you watched them?
All you need is LifeFlix, an old DV Camcorder, a FireWire cable and a Mac to rescue your precious memories.
Hurry before it's too late! MiniDV tapes don't last forever.
What's New in Version 1.5.8
- Added external hard drive support, now save your imported tapes directly to a hard drive.
- Combine undo speed improvements
- Fixed crashing bug during undo of multiple scene combining
This app saves and converts my old DV videos so easily, was just what I needed and have almost completed my conversion of about 50 tapes of home movies. Well worth the money to bypass the complexity of iMovie if all you want is a compressed version of all of your tapes to archive or share easily.
No delete button, no confirmation
I wish it had a delete button or a confirmation when scene or tape is about to be deleted. Deleting entire tape is very slow.
Works great, but a little more needed
I got this because new iMovie crashes all the time. Simple, easy to use, gets it done. It has saved me, but some improvement is suggested: In save to options, iTunes should be added as well as Photos app (iPhoto is dead now). Many people store movies in iTunes. Second, have a feature to rewind the tape automatically when done importing. Third, and most important, provide a way to move the saved file location from an internal to an external drive. These files take a lot of space. This easy solution cannot be accomplished easily in this program once your save location is chosen. To do so involves copying a .plist for backup, moving the files, and editing a .plist manually for each “scene” recorded. If this is not done or done correctly, all links will be broken. That being said, I do love this program and do recommend it.
