Hi, I am having difficulty pulling the digital recordings from my Canon HD HF10 camcorder onto my MacBook. The Software supplied (ImageMixer 3 SE is not mac compatible). Does anyone have any ideas if there is another movie editing software that I can use that will be compatible with my Mac and canon camcorder?

Have you got imovie8 installed, your camera seems to be on the compatible list.

As mentioned by plod, iMovie has a bunch of supported cameras out of the box, so if you have a firewire cable, try starting up iMovie and plugging the camera into the Macbook via firewire and if all is peachy it should just work!

You will probably have both iMovieHD and Imovie 8 installed as part of the standard iLife suite,
do a spotlight search for imovie or have a look in the Applications folder,

Just plug you camera into the macbook and see what opens

I am able to pull off still images from the camcorder into imovie hd but no moving images. I got my hands on a firewire cable but it does not fit into the small usb plug socket. So will have to go source another one to see if firewire is the way to go.

imovie HD won't do it, only the latest imovie 8 will. How old is the macbook?
