AV equipped Macintosh computers are capable of recording movies with sound from either a laserdisc, VCR or video camera. Just sounds can be recorded from any audio source, such as a microphone, a tape deck or a CD player. The files are saved as QuickTime movies that can be included in multimedia presentations. Unfortunately, this type of file requires a large amount of disc memory to save and playback. Therefore, it is usually best to limit the movie/sound to only a few seconds, and to store the files on a 3.5” disk. The video output from the VCR or camera is connected to the video input of the Macintosh. If sounds are to be recorded along with the movie, then the audio output/input connections are made in a similar fashion.
Some type of movie making software, such as Hyperstudio™ or QuickFLIX!™, is required to record and edit the movie segments. The Power Macintosh computers are shipped with the audio/video capture program, called FusionRecorder™, that can be found in the Apple Extras folder on the hard drive. To start working with FusionRecorder™, use the following procedure:
Videomicroscopes can be used to display and capture images of microscale reactions, such as crystal growth or copper with silver nitrate solution. Commercially available videoscopes usually range in price from $900-$2500. An ordinary videocamera, either with a standard microscope or by itself, will also work quite well for microscopic study. A styrofoam donut should be cut out to both fit over the eyepiece of the microscope and rest against the lens of the camera to prevent scratching the lenses. The camera should be mounted on a tripod to hold it securely in place. Focus the microscope on the object, then use the zoom feature on the camera to focus the camera. Plastic 24-well reaction plates, ziplock bags or clear, Tic-Tac mint containers are suitable for reaction vessels. Use a desk lamp with a piece of white construction paper taped over it to serve as a light source for back lighting the objects.
