    You're not an idiot. The people that wrote the instructions are the idiots. I cannot figure out how to get my videos from the computer or the video camera onto the edit screen of the motionmd studio software.

  • Mongrol Apr 29, 2009

    If ya think editing was screwy, wait till ya try to add music.

  • cladeira885 May 25, 2009

    I have the same problem. Problem is also that when I try to edit the motion clips, the software did not recognize my DVD and/or would not output my movies in file format. Therefore, I can only watch the movies on this software and computer. I cannot watch it on a TV. I took the movies of the memory card and now can not watch them anywhere else by the computer...


    I would never buy anything from panasonic again...

I had much the same issues with my Motion SD Studio manual...pretty much useless. On screen help? Forget it...it won't find it. Again..useless.
So the only way I learned to use it was by just digging in and doing it. Once you have it figured out, it really isn't that bad to use. Although it is rather basic as far as editing goes. I quickly outgrew the program and now use Magix Movie Edit Pro 14...MUCH more versatile! But I still need Motion SD to load the files into the computer and render them into the proper format for MEP.

SO the first thing you want to do is load your video clip into the computer. Make sure your power cord is connected to the camera. Then connect the USB cable th the cam and computer. The camera will ask you if you want it to be ""pict-brigge or as a USB drive. Choose USB drive. Cancel out of the window that pops up.
Now start your Motion SD studio software. In a few seconds a box will appear asking you what to do. Yo want to upload files from the camera. Pick this option and a new windoe opens up displaying the videos in your camera on the left and a preview screen on the right. Simply highlight the clips you want to inport and then click the "import" button below the preview screen. This process may take some time depending on the length and number of clips you import.
Once importing is complete, it will ask you if you want to edit the images. Hit YES anf the edit window will open up.
Then drag your clips tio the timeline and begin editing.

I hope this is helpful to anyone having trouble getting thingd going with this software. Remember, I had to learn this on my own due to insufficient manuals and a lack of online help. I can offer further assistance if anyone might need it.

Try using Pinnacle Studio Plus v12 (Link below) They let you try for 15 days. This software is compatible with my Panasonic cam SD files and provides compatibility with a cross section of media including Real, iPod, WAV and many more. It also imports music from iTunes, windows etc. Use the Plus ($79) version for wide screen video. You may be entitled to a 20% discount if you have a Panasonic camcorder. Check your box for coupons.

How do I pause when recording?


I understand that you wish to Pause and Continue recording to record several scenes in a single file. Unfortunately, HDD Camcorders(regardless of manufacturer) do not have the option to pause and record in a single file. Once you press STOP, it will save the current file and When you press the Record again, it will start record as a new file. This is because of the characteristics of the HDD media. If you wish to have the video as a single file, please use a video editing software to combine the videos.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Don't know how to upload it to my comupter


You would have got an application Motion SD Studio for edit videos on the computer. You need to insatll that and use the USB cable that came with the camera to upload video or read the SD card directly on the computer tp upload video. A user manual for the S/W will be a PDF file on the CD or the SD card.
If you did not get the S/W you may be able to download on line

How do i upload a recorded dvd to my computer


The term you are refering to is actually import a dvd. There are several programs out there to accomplish this. I use pinnacle studio 12 as it is the easiest to figure out.
http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us/Products/Consumer+Products/Home+Video/Studio+Family/

If you dont want to use this then you will need some video editing program to import the dvd from the DVD drive in your computer. This will give you a Video file that you can edit in the same program and then burn it to DVD. Feel free to check out our web site our to give me an additional e-mail to ask more indepth questions.

I cannot get my videos to load onto my pc lost the manual


You will need a program to do it such as Pinnacle Studio and a cable. I believe your computer has a DV or firewire cable for it. Once it is plugged into your computer and the camcorder is turned on, your video editing software should load up and allow you to transfer the video to your computer.

Driver are not needed for Windows XP or Vista. They are already built into the operating system.

Windows Movie Maker is pretty limited. I think Microsoft gave up on software like that. Especially since it creates files in version 8 format. I think there up to 11 these days.

Pinnacle Studio is a good program to use. I have used it professionally for over 5 years now and have produced 100s of videos and DVDs with it covering everything from You Tube videos up to a wedding I shot for a client this last weekend.

Once you connect your camera to it and turn it on, it gives you the option to start it up.
