SOURCE: Transfering video to Mac OS X 10.4.11

found this post on apple message board- Re: importing video from a Panasonic SDR-H40.

I have the same camera, and after spending frustrating time w/ Panasonic, Apple, Crutchfield.com support and clerks in Best Buy, etc...the fact is that the camera is currently not supported by iMovie for automatic import. Having said that, there is a workaround, which has been posted in numerous other forum topics, which is the following:

You will need to convert that format into a DV format that imovie can use.

MPEG Streamclip (http://www.alfanet.it/squared5/mpegstreamclip.html) is free and Apple's QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component http://www.apple.com/quicktime/mpeg2/
is about $20.00. They are the tools that you need to download to convert these files.
Once you have done that, export to DV Stream (.dv) and import it into iMovie.

So you download both programs from the websites above. When you connect the camera by its USB2 cable to the Mac, it will come up on the desktop as a hard drive. Open the folder where the video files are kept, and you will see files with both .mod and .moi extensions. Open Streamclip and drag the .mod files into the main window and it will open the video clip. Next, choose Export to DV in the file menu, and export it to whatever folder and with whatever name you want. Finally you can import this .dv file into iMovie.

It's a bit of a pain, but I hope Apple will at some point update iMovie to deal w/ these kinds of camcorders, as they get more popular. Lastly, there are many technical aspects of converting these files, as you'll see in Streamclip. I don't know the ins and outs, but found the 'remove interlacing' gave me a better final video file. You can play w/ the conversion settings and see...
Good luck!

SOURCE: transfer my video from panasonic sdr - h40

try to use USB to plug your device to your computer. make sure that you have an installed driver for your camcorder to recognize your device on your pc. all brand new camcorder came with an installation software cd. now your ready to transfer your video to your computer. use any movie maker application like ulead movie maker, nero movie maker or windows movie maker edit it and save it. burn it to your vcd or dvd burner to play on your dvd player. if you dont have a driver i will find one for you. hope that helps!

SOURCE: Need Panasonic SDR-H40 software download

You can connect to any computer with a USB port. It appears as a hard drive after you tell the camera to connect (in the menu). Then just copy the .mod files to a spot on yor computer; there will be one for each movie clip.
Your next chore is changing them into MPEG files at the correct aspect ratio. If you shot in 16:9 they will be squished together unless you use the SDCopy freeware utility to set the widescreen flag. It also renames and downloads files for you, and it's small. There's a link from this tutorial page, which also explains a lot about aspect ratios and such:

SOURCE: Hi am wanting to put some footage from panasonic

Your Panasonic camera has a USB port on it as associated by the accompanying cable that plugs into it and has a USB end on the other cable. Note that if your videos are on the SD card, you can take it out and put in your computer via a SD adaptor to USB. The hard drive files though are a little more tricky... you have to have the camera being fed by the AC adaptor instead of the battery.. (it looks like the battery and plugs into its hole on the bottom with a cable hangiong out that plugs into the battery charger.. You will not be able to transfer the files unless you have this power configuration.. this is to keep the transfer from being disrupted by running out of battery power. The files are MOD files which are MPEG2 files just renemed. You can rename them to MPG instead of MOD once you copy to the computer. The USB connection forces the PC to make a drive letter for the hard drive in the camera. I hope that helps out

Than ks!

Panasonic SDR-H40-Date/time missing when transfering video to PC


get a capture card, an AV cord ( red, yellow and white cord) and record it onto the computer. This will push the date and time stamp onto the video. There really isnt any other quick solution :-(, unless you sport 800$ for a highend camera, then all harddrive cameras have this problem.
