I have the HG20 that had the same problem. I called Canon support (very nice) turned out that I was using the USB port on the front of the computer. Disconnected and used the USB port on the back of the computer (motherboard) now everything is working fine. Apparently there is a USB hub problem when using the front USB ports. Hope this helps.

How can I download the software for ImageMixer 3SE? I have misplaced the disc for this software and need it for my Cannon camera Vixia HFR100


You can download some software for the Vixia HF R100 here: https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/camcorders/support-high-definition-camcorders/vixia-hf-r100 . However, ImageMixer 3 SE is third-party software that is only available on the driver disc that came with the camera. Some companies will send you a replacement disc for a small fee. You'll need to contact Canon support, https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/ , to ask if they have discs available.

ImageMixer 3 SE is available here: http://www.pixela.co.jp/oem/canon/e/imagemixer3_se_canon/ . However, this is only for updating the software on a computer that already has the program installed.

I hope this helps.

Unable to transfer videos from Canon FS300 to my pc or network drive


MOI is a computer file format used primarily to represent information. MOI files are associated with MOD or TOD files whose content they represent. The Pixela ImageMixer Video Editing Software should allow you to save your videos to your hard drive. But you may need to install the latest version of Quicktime Player (free) to view the the .mov files as an alternative to the ImageMixer program's viewer.

I installed the Pixela Imagemixer and hooked the hadycam to the computer. Everything is fine accept the sound. How can I get the audio problem solved?


The currently bundled PIXELA software does not default to the correct audio settings. In the ImageMixer [Tool settings], confirm the USB Capture Device settings are set for an available [USB Audio Device]. This setting is not defaulted to the USB streaming mode.

The available USB audio device may be displayed as Sony Digital Imaging Device or USB Audio Device. When these choices are available, the Sony Digital Imaging Device should be selected.

If you are having any installation questions or problems with the PIXELA software, please let me know.

Thanks for understanding.

Cannot download PIXELA ImageMixer 3 SE from my cd, it is scratched and the website doesn't allow me to dowload it can anyone help?


Canon makes all kinds of promises about what you can do with their wondrous Pixela software, most of which is untrue.

Like most bundled software, it's really bad. It says you can burn directly to a DVD. You can't. It conveniently forgets to inform you that if you record in MXP 24mbps mode, the file will be downconverted to 18mbps. It says it can write to a DVD-R or DVD-RW from the computer. It will render for a long time (10 minutes for a 6sec clip) then attempt to write to the DVD, THEN tell you that the WRITE FAILED without explaining why.

Bottom line, this is terrible editing and logging software.

ImageMixer 3 SE for SD. Can't Create Disc, Save Files to PC


This has to be the shittest software ever! I've edited my clips in the editing mode but can't do anything but save it as a working edit. The file format is useless for anything but this program so all you can do is edit to your hearts content and then edit some more. Complete waste of time. I tried connecting the camera (Canon HF10) and that took away all editing options. Could only burn straight to DVD or upload to computer. For such an expensive camera this is very disappointing.

Canon HS10 camcorder and Imagemixer 3


To play the audio you need to download the AC3 filter pack here: http://www.free-codecs.com/AC3_Filter_download.htm. I have no idea why Canon didn't bundle this codac with all of the software they provide, but it worked for me. I use a Canon FS100, and had no sound in WMP (or any other Windows apps except VLC Media Player) until installing this.

Problem installing ImageMixer 3 software on my Mac.


I just got off the phone with Canon support. I have a Canon HF 100 and was experiencing the same problems. If you have the newest version of iMovie (in iMovie '08....but I would bet '09 would work fine as well...'06 is questionable), you shouldn't have any trouble getting the files off your camera onto your Mac.

Steps:

1. Plug in the camera and turn the power on (or plug in the memory card via a card reader)
2. Open iMovie
3. Wait a few seconds to see if your camera connection automatically opens, if it doesn't, click on the image of the camera on the far left side of the middle bar in iMovie.
4. It should recognize the video information you have plugged in at this point. If it doesn't, in the bottom of the import window, see if you can select a camera from the drop down list next to where it says "camera" in the bottom left.

I was told by the tech support people that I need to update my Final Cut Express software in order to read the video files, however I think they're wrong because I'm pretty sure I have the newest version. I also just found this information on Apple's website useful (see the video entitled "Built in AVCHD"): http://www.apple.com/finalcutexpress/ If you're using Final Cut Express 4, go to File -> Log & Transfer (or hit SHIFT + COMMAND + 8 on your keyboard) and if your camera/memory stick is plugged in, it should show a list of your files right there. Much better than iMovie.

Here is some information on the stuff I am using if it's useful:

iMovie '08 version 7.1.4
Final Cut Express 4 version 4.0.1
Canon HF 100 Digital HD Camcorder
Mac OS X Leopard Version 10.5.6

Hope this is helpful. I doubt that I will check back to this forum, so please email any questions you might have (I may or may not be able to answer) to bbaumgar@ucsd.edu. I would recommend, assuming you have a Mac, going out and buying iMovie '09 ($39 - $79 depending where you buy it), Final Cut Express ($100 - $300 depending where you buy it), or Final Cut Studio 2 ($400 - $1200 depending where you buy it) before spending money on another software that won't let you do as much. The Imagemixer 3 software that your camera came with is supposed to let you basically do the same things, but doesn't work on Mac. It looks like you can buy the Mac version from Pixela...but I would encourage you to contact Canon or Pixela support first and demand a free one, since you paid so much for the camcorder and should be entitled to the software.

Canon tech support was pretty useful as well: 1-800-828-4040. I only had to wait about 5 minutes. (The total call was around 15 mins).

Good luck.
