InterView 2.0

At a Glance
  • XLR8 InterView 2.0

If you're looking for a hassle-free way to capture video from your camcorder and display it on your USB-equipped Mac, XLR8's InterView 2.0 is the way to go. The latest release fixes bugs and adds a few bells and whistles--such as a utility for capturing the video window and displaying it full screen. Version 2.0 also updates the bundled movie-compression utility and includes a 30-day-evaluation copy of Sorenson Broadcaster. Although compatibility with various video-editing and Web-cam applications has been improved in InterView 2.0, we noted sound-sync problems when we were capturing a clip using Adobe Premiere 5.1c.
