Our community have been loaned a Canon HG21 and Mac G5 with Final Cut Express so we can produce videos. There is a combination of street action shots and more importantly animations , interior and close ups.
What we can't do is link the video camera to the Mac so we can see the action on the screen.
The HG21 has a usb port, mini HDMI and a Component output with phono jacks for TV ( I assume this
output is a Canon only one).
The mac is running OSX 10.6.5 and has 2 x 800 firewire ports and a Mini Display port
When we connect video by usb to the mac, as expected we see it has another drive and can access it.

Here's the question what can we do and what else would need to so we can see the action on the Mac monitor.
