I have a JVC miniDV/VHS deck that has firewire. With that I am able to connect to Final Cut Pro and change the options in FCP to “non-controllabledevice”. VHS is analog so it has to be set to “non-controllable device.” From there I would press play on my deck and click on the “Capture Now” button to allow for real-time capture.Hopefully you have something like that in your program.
If you do not have a firewire deck you may need to purchase an RCA to firewire converter. You would connect the VCR to the converter with the RCA wires and then connect the converter to your computer with a Firewire.
