Mini to Avidgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread
How can I go about getting my miniDV footage onto an Avid express that does not have fire wire ports?

The camera you shot with most definitely has Analog output. It will probably be a mini into the camera with a three part white / red / yellow wire coming out. Use these wires to connect to a beta machine (post house) and give that beta tape to your avid editor.
Hope this helps,

i did this twice. i shot a PSA and a proposal video on an XL1 and both times I just hooked the camera itself up to the Avid Xpress using the analogue output... it would have been nicer to copy it to a beta, of course. it's a bitch not being able to shuttle... but i was rushed. so sue me.
