Question about Cameras

2 Answers

I have a Canon HG10 Video Camcorder, however I can't figure out how to transfer the actual video files to the computer to be edited by programs. It is a hard drive camcorder meaning that all the information is on a onboard hard drive on the camcorder itself, the manual tells you how to transfer pictures and how to "back up video files to the computer" but the files are not viewable on the computer and must be "transfered back" to the camcorder to be watched... help.

For editing software Avid Studio, Corel VideoStudio Pro X5, Sony Vegas, etc... all handle AVCHD format video (the .MTS video files from the HG10).

Later versions of Windows Media Player now will play this format. Many other players are also available.

Hi there
your camcorder records in AVCHD format which is a bit specialised at the moment, so your going to need special software to edit it.
you can get sony vegas movie studio 8 from amazon for about £30 ish and that will do the job nicely.

be warned .............. you will need a large hard drive (100 gig ish) as it takes a large amount of room to work, also a 3 gig cpu and a mid to high end video card.

hope this helps

My Sony Multi-Function DVD Recorder does not recognize my Canon HG10 USB connection, for creating a DVD directly from the Canon HDD. Is there a work around?


You could put it on your computer and use an editing software and then burn it on to a DVD.
For basic editing softwares: Windows has Movie Maker and Apple has iMovie.
Hope this helps.

Canon Hg 10 Vertical line on image


This camera outputs interlaced video files. That can be the lines you are talking about if you are playing it back on a PC. The camcorder itself will de-interlace the video during playback on the actual camera, but not the file. You have to either play it (60i) with a hardware or software player that de-interlaces in realtime, or export your video file into a progressive (or deinterlaced) format. Some cheap editors dont deinterlace. I use Adobe Premiere Pro and Sony Vegas.

Uploading video from Canon HG10 HD 40GB


I CAN HELP ON PARTS OF YOUR PROBLEM. FIRST, MOST CAMERAS DOWNLOAD IMAGES THAT ARE COMPATIBLE TO WINDOWS SYSTEMS, NOT MACS. FOR DOWNLOADING TO A MAC I'M AFRAID YOU'LL HAVE TO GO TO THE MAC WEBSITE. I'M A WINDOWS VISTA USER.
AS FAR AS THE HDMI PORT, THAT PORT IS AN OUTPUT PORT TO CONNECT TO A HIGH DEF. TV. YOU DO NOT WANT TO FORCE ANY CABLES INTO YOUR CAMERA ETC. CONSULT THE CANON WEBSITE FOR INFORMATION ON DOWNLOADING TO MACS. A STANDARD USB CONNECTION SHOULD BE FINE TO DOWNLOAD. I HOPE THIS HELPS SOME. SORRY I'M NOT UP ON MACS, BUT I'VE BEEN WITH WINDOWS SINCE WIN3.1 OR EARLIER. GOOD LUCK!

Edit and transfer to DVD


I use Handbrake ( http://handbrake.fr ) to turn the minidvd files into Mpeg4 files. I have a canon dc 220 and I hook it up to my computer with the supplied USB cable. I then copy the files onto my laptop and use Handbrake to convert them to the mpeg4 format.

Dvd question


DVD-RWs can be initialised in either VIDEO mode or in VR mode. In your case you have initialised the disc in VR mode - hence the .VRO file extension.

VR mode allows you to edit the disc on the camcorder and is a newer format than VIDEO mode, which is the format used in most films, and which most DVD players 'understand'. VIDEO format cannot be edited on the camcorder, and can be edited on a PC. A VIDEO mode disc has to be finalised before you can use it on a PC.

Use VIDEO mode if you want to upload your video to a PC.
