I'll be shooting more video as we unload this evening. I do have a USB cable I found and I have a successful hard connection from the video camera to the Macbook. I am having a hard time in getting iMovie to toggle to change the video input from the video camera. It show no other selections listed in the toggle menu. I've played with iMovie preferences and the MacBook preferences, and don't see where I can change the input selection away from the built in video camera to the external movie camera.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
