Yes.  Many other common Mac graphics applications can read TIFF also,
including Canvas and Photoshop.

Video Spigot is such a card that is inexpensive ($400 for nubus mac, other
models for LC and SI) and links to many kinds of video input -- VCR,
camcorder, TV.  I haven't used one.  I'm looking at the blurb for it in
MacWarehouse mail order catalog.  Phones: 800.622.6222,  Fax: 203.855.1386,
paper mail: MacWareHouse, 47 Water St., Norwalk, CT 06854.    Other Mac
mail-order companies will also sell this.
