I’m about to transfer home movies from my camcorder tapes to a hard drive for ultimate viewing via ATV/aTV Flash. Some of he tapes were recorded 20 years ago and some recently (different camcorders, both analog, both non-HD). I also plan on doing the same with video recorded in HD on my digital SLR camera. Some, if not all, may be edited in iMovie.
I do not want these to be associated with iTunes. I have previously transferred ripped (via Ripit) DVDs to the external (Primary) hard drive, synced via FTP/Cyberduck, and would like to do something similar with the home movies, preferably in a different folder than the ripped DVDs or in some manner to segregate “commercial” movies from “home” movies.
I’m looking for suggestions! What format to use? How/where to transfer the home movie media onto the external HD?
