Fujitsu ScanSnap Fujitsu announced that it would not be releasing Catalina drivers for some models of their ScanSnap scanners. This means that the problem is not unique to Catalina but it is something that affects the entire macOS system. Here are some of the possible reasons why some users are having trouble opening DMG files: If your Mac is running Catalina, check the version of the app you are trying to open. Catalina no longer supports 32-bit apps. Diamond Multimedia VC500MAC USB 2.0 One Touch VHS to DVD Video Capture Device (MacOS) $ 39.99. The Diamond One-Touch Video Capture VC500MAC has become the most versatile and easy-to-use device on the desks of many video capture enthusiasts. It takes all the stress out of converting video from almost any source and converting and preserving them.
Originally I used my 2005 Mac with a Canopus 55 with a “normal” VHS player to achieve poor video quality with many stops based on tape glitches.
I have read lately that VHS capture is best with uncompressed looseless or MPEG-2 as too much quality is lost with H.264. Lossy ProRes422 also apparently works. I also realized that a better VCR, such as the JVC HR-S9500U with integrated TBC makes a world of difference in quality and those glitchy start/stops during the process. Many also say PC’s make the best choice to avoid getting defaulted into H.264.
My question is then, with my iMac Pro running Catalina, is there an external capture device that quality results for the VHS analog tapes Or do I need to run Bootcamp for PC software and capture device to achieve high quality results? FCPX is my editing software.
Thank you for your input and support
What will the kit copy? What won't it copy?
You'll be able to copy all your own homemade videos and most things recorded from TV. Each shop-bought video we tried converted fine (Ivor The Engine, The Clangers, and the Bond movie Goldeneye)
Anything else you have, on what looks like a regular blank tape, should be transferable.
You can connect any older camcorder or VCR - we supply a one metre phono lead and a phono to Scart adapter.
How easy is it to use?
Just plug the Scart adapter into the back of your VHS video player, attach the phono lead, connect the USB capture device to the phono lead, plug the USB adapter directly into your Mac. Install software provided. Capture to Mac. Burn to DVD.
What spec Mac do I need?
Any Mac made in the last ten years will be fine providing it runs one of these versions of Mac OS:
El Capitan (10.11), Sierra (10.12), High Sierra (10.13), Mojave (10.14), Catalina (10.15) and Big Sur (11.4)
Technical info : The software supports PAL & NTSC devices. Both S-Video and Composite video inputs are supported by the software & USB hardware (we supply a composite lead). Even and odd fields are combined into single frames that can be captured at full frame rates for the applicable standard (VHS Upscaling). The maximum supported frame size is: PAL (UK & Europe) 720 x 576 (DVD quality) @ 25fps / NTSC (USA) 720 x 480 @ 29.97fps. Suitable for use in UK, Europe, North America and Australia. Captures video & audio via a USB port to a standard MP4 file. Our adapter performs time base correction on the incoming signal, which means even your wobbly & wavy 1980s wedding video can be transferred, providing it plays back okay on a TV. You can attach VHS-C, Video8, Hi8, Digital8 & Mini DV camcorders via RCA phono outputs, as well as any VCR with a Scart output. You can also attach more modern devices like, Freeview, satellite & cable, hard drive recorders - basically anything with a Scart output. Also, if you have an older pre-Scart Betamax or VHS player with separate Video & Audio out sockets, we can supply a free BNC bayonet to RCA phono adapter, just ask. (Please note that this newer version of Video-2-Mac no longer supports NTSC433 mode, which is what you use when copying USA NTSC tapes on a UK VCR with NTSC playback. If you want to do this and aren't using Catalina or Big Sur, order the OLD version of Video-2-Mac instead Add to Basket )
In addition to the USB adapter, we also supply a Scart adapter (UK and Europe only) and a one metre long RCA phono plug to plug lead with all orders, so the kit can be used with all VCRs and camcorders.
Our kit will grab from any VCR or camcorder at DVD resolution with no loss of quality. It will keep recording until you run out of hard drive space. Video & audio will stay in perfect sync. Edit using OpenShot, iMovie or Final Cut Pro. Burn to DVD using iDVD or Burn OSX. The DVDs you make will play in any DVD player.
