Formac Studio FS10 Video Converter will not convert Wii signal?
I have borrowed a Formac Studio FS10 from someone as I'm looking to buy something similar for the purposes of recording Wii Game footage.
It takes Red, Yellow, White IN and Firewire 400 OUT. I can then import into iMovie.
This works with a PS2, a DVD Player and a VCR. However the signal from the wii arrives in iMovie with flashing pixels, screeching beeps and the picture frozen.
I am sure I am doing the same as I did with the other devices, is there anything I can do, or is there a similar device that would work?
followup to my earlier comment... I tried using my Canopus AVDC-100 DV analog converter and confirmed I can successfully record video output from the Wii to the Mac.
one caveat: when using iMovie'09 to record, I can't see the video output in the preview screen (only get a blank blue screen) - however the video IS imported and recorded into iMovie, and I can view it in the app once recording is done, and export the video from iMovie. It's been a couple OS version updates since I've used this converter, and digging around a bit finds there are reports of some issues importing DV over FireWire and Snow Leopard with the Canopus box
but then I tried another video capture program called Vidi and that seems to work just fine, both video preview and record of DV stream over FireWire
Maybe give Vidi a try? I notice they mention support for Formac converters
