Simple to use, and I finally have my old DV tapes on my computer! - I've been procrastinating forever - even though I have the equipment and software to capture my DV Tapes without this, I never wanted to go through tedious process of capturing the entire tape then shifting through it with an editor, finding the parts I wanted - import in, export out, save it here, compress it, upload it to Facebook…find out the compression and size wasn't right for online, try again with a different codec, upload again. argh, forget it - so when I saw Lifeflix could capture and organize in the background without me doing anything, then allow me to just post whatever clips I wanted to Facebook straight from the import with one click, it was worth trying out. Wow! Simple! Time saver from the boring parts of capture - still, be prepared to get sucked in and lose track of time watching your old videos...

Nice idea, poor execution - Often starts tape playing, but records nothing. Restarting app sometimes fixes that, but not always. Does not record first scene of movie. Canon HV20.

Review by Stuke

OK but needs more inputs - DV, yes it does this. But loads of us have VHS-C and perhaps even VHS. We have the equipment to send in the analog tape signal, so why can’t LifeFlix DV Importer just be LifeFlix Importer? If an update appeared that allowed me to send in my VHS-C footage like it does with my DV footage, 5-stars…no question about it. As is, it is a partial solution to everyone’s problem.

Easy to use and great to have! - I am a video professional and have been editing for 30 years. Finally a program that digitizes clips at original resolution with no loss and allows you to instantly combine all of the clips from a tape with one touch of a button. My professional edit systems don’t do this. You can, but requires editing, especially when the clips go out of sync, and way too time consuming! This is the perfect answer to saving your personal tapes in bulk with little fuss! I have over 65 tapes that I need saved and this does the job. I have only had 1 issue so far with the 10 tapes I have digitized, and that is a pretty good track record I think. I could still digitize it but not combine the whole thing, and I can live with that. It has digitized all the tapes that my professional program couldn’t so far, and I am pretty happy. Great job with this program! Look forward to updates. The cost is more than reasonable, so thanks!

Review by Hi-8

Life Saver - I had a lot of old 8MM tapes from the late 80s unit the 90s. I did not even have a working camera. After a long search I found a friend with a Sony 8mm. I got the correct cords to connect the old firewire to my new Macbook Pro and was disappointed iMovie would not import them. What Now? Then came Lifeflix and I am so happy! I did a search for a program like this and I was supprise to find such an nice working one that bridges the old with the new.

Review by HaleVideo

Beware! This may not work with your equipment! - Using a Canon GL-2 and a Canon ZR40 this program failed to import the sound. Transferring a Hi8 analogue tape using a Sony Digital 8 camcorder yielded a file with both sound and picture. Tech support acknowledged the problem and informed me that an update was just released; however, the update has not as yet appeared here on the Apple Store. I’ll await a little longer for the update to come and then revise my review. If it does not soon come, I’ll request a refund.
