Firewire Video Capture Software Mac

  1. Firewire Camera Software
  2. Firewire Video Capture Device
I have a Canon Vixia HV 30 which I was previously able to connect to my PC when I had Windows 7. Now that I have upgraded to 10, the Windows Movie Maker is gone, so I tried installing some of the apps which said they made DVDs, but none of then have the ability to capture from firewire. I did some searching and tried WinDV and DVCapture, but neither of them worked. The camera shows up in the device manager under the 'sound, video and game controllers' and it says that the driver is the latest and greatest.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
