Transfer TO DVD after editing

After I spend alot of time editing the info, I don't seem to be able to save it as a 'movie' and stitch all the pieces together and download it onto a disk for keeping a hard copy. Any ideas? Should I buy a third party software program to make it easier? Thanks for the help. Traveling with my handycam in Central America

How can I transfer my 8mm tape to my computer? I need to have the film on a flash drive or dvd.

Assuming that you want to do your video work later (editing,DVD burning)in your PC.

1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on).
2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device.
3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV.
4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture.
5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode.
6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam.
7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture.
8.Start your editing work.
9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.

For beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but effective enough for home-movie work.Once your project is completed,save your movie in original .avi format for later burning to DVD,etc.

BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.

Can not find software to run my ccd-TRV138 camcorder on windows 7.can i be helped?

Sony CCD-TRV138 is analog video-8 camcorder that can not be hooked directly with computer because computer needs digital data file where as this camcorder is an analog and has no digital file format.

If you want to transfer CCD-TRV138 movies in computer, you need to convert its analog Audio-Video signal into digital format then save it in computer for further process/ edit etc.

Hook CCD-TRV138 with DVD Recorder in AV Input and burn a DVD, this process will convert analog movie into digital data format, put that CD in your computer and copy-paste files in computer.
Hope this info will help you.

Filming transfer

Several steps are involved. You will need a firewire or USB cord to connect your camera to your computer. You will need a video capture application on your PC. Macs come with this program, I-Movie. Once captured, the movies can be edited. Your PC will need a combination drive to burn a DVD from the captured material. An easier way: Take your camera output and feed it directly into a DVD recorder. No editing, but it is a one-step process. I use both methods.

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.

Use firewire cable to coonect to a computer. Transfer the movie from camcorder to the computer (for example using Microsoft Movie Maker - included in Windows XP). Then you can edit it in Movie Maker and save the final movie on the hard disk, DVD or back on DV cassette.

Transfer Video From Camcorder to Computer

Here is what ya need to do, that is get the correct cable(s) to connect your Camcorder to your PC, usually USB or Firewire. Then install the software that will allow you to transfer the movie from the camera to your PC where you can then manipulate the files as ya wish with Movie Editing software. The "Other" way is to burn them to the small Camera Disk, place that disk in ya PC's CD/DVD then simply "Copy" the "Movie" to ya PC, and then once again ya can use Movie Making/Editing software to Join, Edit your movies. Another way is to connect the output A/V of your camera to your A/V input on your PC (if you have one).. using you Video software capture the Camera Video to the PC & Edit the resultant file, as B4. Windows Movie Maker works OK, but there are many Freeware programs that one can use.. have a "Google" for these programs .... AnyDVD, convertXtoDVD, Moive joining software, ShrinkDVD, I am sure you will have no trouble finding what ya need.
