Big question (and I hope the answer isn’t what I think it is):
When using a DV tape to record and transfering from the camcorder to the computer via firewire, must one do so in real-time?
Is there any work arounds to this incredibly inconvient process?

No. Tape captures in real time. If you shot an hour of video, it will take an hour to capture. More like 2 hours: 1 hour to log the tape, 1 hour to capture.
If you think that’sinconvenient, go use a tape-to-tape editing machine for a while. Then you’ll be psyched when you go back to DV tape.

Yep, it’s all realtime, and like Robert said, there are definitely fates worse than DV transfer.
If you want faster transfer, you can either buy a firestore drive, or you could record directly onto your computer.

Friend, what Robert and Jimc adviced you,and that is all you have to do. Capturing equals recording time.
God bless you
