DVD Capcorders are typically not meant to edit videos on a computer. DVD Camcorders are usually meadfor someone who doesn't have a computer and simply wants to watch their movies on their TV. I don't believe the DC210 has a firewire (IEEE1394) port on it, so that means you will need to "rip" the video from the DVD.

First, Finalize the DVD following the instructions in your manual
Next, place the DVD into your PC. If it plays in your PC, then we know that your computer can read the disk.
Next, download a free application called "HANDBRAKE" available from handbrake.fr
Handbrake will extract the video and audio from the DVD (it will not damage the DVD) and place it on your hard drive in a format that a movie editor can handle. An AVI file will probable work the best.
Follow the instructions in handbrake and let it it chug away. It will probably take an hour or more to finish. Once it is finished you should be able to to import it into your favorite movie editor.

If you get serious about video editing, I would recommend a tape or flash memory camera with a firewire (IEEE1394) port. The quality will be much better

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.

How do i edit footage from dcr-dvd105e on my laptop


If you are running Windows "XP" or "Vista" on your lap top you have Windows Movie Maker on your machine. If you run that program with your camcorder connected via Firewire it should be detected automatically. WMM allows you to edit your video and output to EMail, CD and DVD. Use the WMM "Help" facility to get you started. Good Luck.

How Do I Edit the Film?


Look for the output jacks on your camera, hook them to your computer's audio/video input. Try accessing the recording utility on the computer then upload footage through NTSC format. You can then edit the footage. If your camera and computer utilize S-video, use them for best resolution

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.

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.
For more information, see HD and Broadcast Formats and the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express User Manual, available under the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express Help menu
