Question about Sony HDR-SR12 HDD Camcorder

1 Answer

Can't download video from camera to imac for use in imovie or final cut express.

I hooked my brand new sony hdr-sr12 to my imac (uses leapard os) and it will not recognize the camera in either imovie or final cut express. I tried to open the icon on the desktop and drag the files to both programs and both acted like they were opening files and then said they were not readable files. There is no port for a firewire which is what my computer is telling me to use. It will open iphoto and import still photos from the memory disk pro. I want to be able to edit my video. What do I do from here?All the video I have tried to download is recorded in HD.

It is a Hard Disk type Camcorder. Follow the steps as mentioned on the Link given below to transfer the video from the Camcorder to a Mac Computer.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C455202


NOTE: Movie player applications must support MPEG-2 for standard-definition video or AVCHD for high-definition video to open and play these files. Refer to the software manufacturer of the movie player application you are using for additional information and any available updates.

The Apple Macintosh Web site offers MPEG2 Works 4 Advanced 4.2 for download.

The Apple Macintosh Web site has an MPEG-2 Playback component for Quicktime 6 or 7 available for purchase.

Troubleshooting information about importing MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 clips with Apple iMovie software is available on the Apple Macintosh Web site.

For the Apple Mac OS X operating system, DVD authoring software (Capty DVD/VCD 2 ) and MPEG editing software (Capty MPEG Edit EX) is available for purchase from the PIXELA Web site. These applications are for standard-definition video only.



Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
