HELP!!!! Panasonic GS180

I recently bought a GS180, I have edited the footage that I have taken but would now like to either put it back onto tape or burn it onto DVD. I have tried various ways of doing this via the USB. It basically says its not compatible and I am only able to save it as an AVI file and it's huge!!! (and won't fit on a DVD (6 GB??) - what am I doing wrong??? I've heard a lot about Firewire - could somebody please tell me what it is, what it does and will this solve my problem of downloading edited footage from my PC back to the tape???? Please help a.s.a.p Thanks laney123

Re: HELP!!!! Panasonic GS180

Firewire is an apple gift to the video etc . world ( also called standard : ieee 1394 ); it solves some problems better than usb because it is a peer to peer connection ( all devices communicate with each other ) and your editing will be easier with it ;

I have recorded footage for a fashion show at high quality for a client. When i attempt to edit the footage on imovie on my mac the footage comes out very jittery. The footage is fine when played back...

Hard to say without seeing it and more details of the video coding of the files you recorded but I think you shot it interlaced and you are trying to edit/view progressive, or the field dominance is wrong.

Have a look here, this should sort it either way

I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Black horizontal lines accross screen


Initially, try a video head cleaner. There are versions that are at the same size of your video tapes but contains a cleaning strip. A cleaning solution is likewise added.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If you have Head Cleaning Cassette play it at 10 seconds or use new Cassette for 10 minutes play or record. Otherwise Video Head damage

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view time code...nothing. Recently recorded footage plays back fine though?????

If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

Cant import vids onto imovies on mac from image mixer 3

Mac's camera editing only goes as far as iMovie. Importing more footage is almost impossible. You may be able to find a few back routes though. Hope that helps.

HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera

You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

Time code problem -- footage disappearing

Menu setting - the time code is simply resetting itself.  If you intend to edit your footage with NLE software this will be a problem, otherwise no issue.

Transfer footage from DVD to Computer for editing

I use ISO Buster to read the AVCHD footage into my computer and then edit with Pinnacle Studio. With ISO Buster, you place the 3" AVCHD DVD into your regular DVD Rom drive on your computer and it will rip the raw files directly from the disk. You cannot transfer the movies from the DX1 to Pinnacle or any other editor using the USB cable.
