Hi

If you are using Imac then this will work with IMOVIE O8. You have to:

Step 1: Plug in camera with Firewire with the camera OFF
Step 2: Turn ON camera
Step 3: Start imovie


You can also try to connect your I-link to Firewire cable then, start Imovie and also turn on the camcorder (does not matter which order). On Camcorder touch screen press Guide, then Connect Guide, then the Icon showing the computer, then ok the first screen ( should show the inline to I link cable), then Press HDV. After this Press No. Press okay, then okay again, then end. If still the issue is not resolved please check these links:

Sony HDR-HC5

Sony HDR-HC5 Connections

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

50p/60p Converter-Transcode CX360 MTS to ProRes for FCP X Editing


Merge/Edit Sony CX360V 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD to ProRes 422(HQ)(*mov) on FCP X with Highest quality <br /><br />I used Sony HDR-CX360V to record 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files, which are not compatible with FCP X. So in order to edit the movies on FCP X, conversion from <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">MTS in 50/60 progressive mode to ProRes</a></b> is necessary. <br /><br />I've tried Clipwrap, Toast and Aunsoft to carry out the conversion. Clipwrap failed because it cannot export 50/60 progressive mode; Toast completed converting but the quality is badly affected. <br /><br />Only Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac successfully converted the 50p/60p MTS to ProRes 422 with no loss of quality. I really want to say that it is the best software to <b>Transcode Sony HDR-CX360V 1920x1080 50p/60p AVCHD MTS footage for FCP X</b> that I've ever used. <br /><br />Here is the step-by-step guide to quickly <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/07/transcode-sony-cx360-50p60p-avchd-mts-footage-to-prores-422-hq-for-fcp-x-editing/">Convert/Edit Sony CX360 50p/60p MTS to ProRes 422 (*.mov) on FCP X</a></b>. <br /><br />1. Importing 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac <br />Use a USB cable to Connect Sony HDR-CX360V to Mac. Follow the popup window and wizard to complete the import. <br /><br />2. <b>Merging and converting 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files</b> to what you want. <br />After the MTS movies are imported, select one or several videos you would like to convert and then drag and drop them to Movies tab. You can choose the files to be joined as one whole, or create a single movie for each file. Then click the "set parameter" button. Choose Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) under Final Cut Pro as its output format and choose "50" (or 60) for the frame rate. <br /><br />3. Export Apple ProRes 422(HQ) for editing on FCP X <br />After setting the output format and frame rate, click the "Export" button and conversion from <b>1920x1080</b> 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files to Apple ProRes 422(HQ)(*mov) starts. <br /><br />After the conversion is completed, <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Import and Edit ProRes 422 (HQ) on FCP X</a></b>. <br /><br /><b>Tips:</b> <br />If you want to join/merge Sony HDR-CX360V AVCHD MTS clips and <b>play on WDTV Live with original quality</b>, you can use Aunsoft Final Mate to import MTS files and flawlessly export MKV without transcoding.

sony-hdr-fx1.jpg
Sony's HDR-FX1 is the first three-CCD HDV camcorder to hit the market. The Sony HDR-FX1 HDV camcorder can record and playback both in high definition and in standard MiniDV formats, so the choice is yours. What's amazing is that with this camera, you can play and record both formats on a MiniDV tape!
With the Sony HDR-FX1, Sony developed a special compression engine. It encodes in MPEG2 at the same bit rate as DV. As a result, you can use the same miniDV tapes you're accustomed to buying to record at stunning high definition. Moreover, when in high definition mode, the camcorder records audio in MPEG1 Audio Layer II, providing excellent sound quality.
Sony HDR-FX1 Handycam Camcorder Supported Format:
Audio system: MPEG1 Audio Layer 2 Stereo;
Dolby Digital Output : MPEG1 Audio Layer 2-Stereo (HDV), PCM (DV)
Video: Digital Video Format: MPEG-2
Video Recording System: Real-Time HD Codec Engine, HDV/DV Recording
Still Image Format: JPEG
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Sony HDR-FX1 Handycam Camcorder:
Advantages:
1.Sharp and vibrant three-chip HD images;
2.Native 16:9 capture;
3. Ability to downconvert video for use with existing editing systems and displays.
Disadvantages:
1. No XLR inputs or independent audio-level controls;
2. No 24P;
3.Somewhat difficult to control and monitor focus manually;
4.Limited HDV editing and distribution options at this time.
Final Cut/Abobe Premiere/Avid/Canopus/Pinnacle/Ulead Support Sony HDV/DV files Editing
Along with the announcement of the HDR-FX1, Apple Computer is announcing support for the HDV spec with their popular video editing program, Final Cut. "Native HDV support in future releases of Final Cut will enable our customers to create high quality HD content with affordable HDV cameras, including Sony's much anticipated HDR-FX1 camcorder," said Rob Schoeben, Apple's Vice President of Applications Marketing.
Adobe has also stated that they will be releasing an HDV plug-in for their popular Premiere editing system later this year. "The Sony HDR-FX1 is a milestone product, bringing HD-quality video at resolutions of up to 1080i at a price that will encourage widespread adoption of HDV across the industry. In keeping with our commitment to lead the HD revolution, Adobe plans to release a HDV Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro later this year," said Steve Saylor, Vice President, Digital Imaging and Video, Adobe Systems, Inc.
Avid, Canopus, Ulead and Pinnacle also announced support for HDV. Editing support has been a big issue for HDV in the past, with third party companies supplying solutions for Final Cut and Adobe Premiere.
Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac Supports Native Sony HDV/DV files Converting
With the release of Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac, no matter what usages you want to deal with Sony HDR-FX1 recorded HDV/DV files, for sharing on your websites, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Motionbox, Myspace, etc, for playing with your iPad, iPhone 4, iPod, Android Phones, Xbox 360, etc, for making forever collection by burning to Blu-ray or DVD, etc, it can help you to convert Sony HDV/DV files to MOV, AVI, WMV, 3GP, MP4, FLV, F4V, etc formats you wanted.

My computer does not recognize my Sony hdr Hc5 camcorder. I cannot download my videos. I use firewire. I am using windows xp


Take a look at the firewire port on the camera, you should see four "pins" for lack of a better word. On mine, one of them was bent and I had to use a fine needle to bend it back in place, then presto everything works

Go to manufacture's website. Find the download or support tab. Then look for the very latest drivers for your camera. Then download onto pc, double-click to extract and install the driver, then restart pc, Then turn on camera first, then start any programs you are using, then finally connect with usb/i-link/HD cable.

When pc doesn't recognize a device, it is due to the driver.
