Thanks Russ H
I have iMovie as well and the same happened. I don't have QT Pro but maybe worth getting.
I do have a ADVC 300, so wondering if it would be better to connect via annalogue from camera to ADVC, then digital out to Mac?
Would rather be digital all the way, but think ADVC may correct TLC issues?

@Al, I learned something new from your reply. Thanks. I never know that QTX could capture from tape. According to the thread I linked to it brings it in as h.264. Good to know and I'll have to give it a try.
