    ALL MiniDV tape based camcorders record in DV (standard definition) or HDV (high definition) formats. To get the digital video from the miniDV tape to your computer, you need to connect the DV port (not USB) of the camcorder to the firewire port (not USB) of the computer. The video editor will Import the video - when the camcorder is in "Play" or "VCR" mode.

    To get the video into avi or wmv or mov format, the video editor will have an export or Save As... function that renders the video to that selected file type and compression.
