Question: Imported DV is missing sound
Using iMovie 10.1.8, I'm importing some old video from a Canon ZR25MC. The first challenge was with connectivity since I needed to get a Firewire400 to Firewire800 adapter, and a Firewire800 to Thunderbolt adapter. That seemed to work fine since iMovie is able to see and control the camera. Importing video worked fine except it is missing audio. When I enable "show waveforms" in iMovie the audio portion is completely empty.
I've tried two different Macs — an iMac and a MacBookPro, both running HighSierra and iMovie 10.
I've seem some mention online about Quicktime missing some codecs, but that was always in the context of importing compressed files. Here, I'm just trying to import raw DV straight from a camera.
