SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Can't upload video from Canon Vixia HG20 camcorder

My knowledge in video editing is limited, but here's what I could dig up.

m2ts is also referred to as AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format which most computers cant render properly since most computers render in progressive format. You have to convert it to MPEG2, AVI, WMV, MOV or other movie file types in Progressive mode, a process known as "Deinterlacing" in order to edit it. Depending on how big the file is and how fast your computer is this could take several hours. Also, you cant view AVCHD files on normal televisions, you need a high-def TV.

If you want to edit high-def videos with post-effects and music etc, for dvd or blue-ray, you'll need a more powerful computer. The "recommended" minimum is a 64bit dual core processor, windows vista 64 bit, a seperate 500Gb or bigger hard drive and at minimum, 3-4Gbs of RAM with a high-def TV monitor. (1080i) Rendering High-Def videos is process heavy and can take up to 12+ hours to render a single 30-60 minute video with post-fx like music, logo's etc. The reason you need a 64bit processor and 64bit windows is because regular XP and Vista wont recognize more than 3Gb of RAM.

You could get by with a 32bit dual core processor and 2 gigs of RAM on windows XP, it's just going to be slower. You will still probably need a high def monitor if your going to edit in high-def mode.

High-def is new technology to mainstream consumers. Supporting technology hasnt caught up yet including most software--however most of what I read stated that Sony Vegas Platinum can do this pretty well.

Your camera is capeable of recording in progressive mode. You'll have to read the manual on how to do this. This will record it in standard mode which is not high-def. (For future reference)

To sum it all up, the camera's technology is more advanced than most PCs. I downloaded AVS Video Converter and converted the AVCHD, (MPEG4) a high-def Interlaced format to HD Video 720p: WMV9, 7000 kbps....... on the drop down screen of the AVS program. I now can view my videos in Progressive Standard mode with NO choppy play back or problems. Please note that 720p is a non digital standard Television view.

Hope this helps.

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

I never expected canon would supply such idiotic software. It combines files before creating a disc. Does anybody know how to write a disc without combining files? Is there any option in the ImageMixer 3 SE software to disable combining files? Worst part is, they dont even supply proper help files or instruction files. I wish i had bought some cheaper camera now instead of canon.

SOURCE: cannot download PIXELA ImageMixer 3 SE from my cd,

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.

They are greyed out when the camcorder is not plugged into the computer, and a power outlet. Try that.

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.

Mac G4 won't recognize Canon FS10 video output


This is only a suggestion: If you want to use the software that comes with the camera, PIXELA ImageMixer 3 SE, this needs to be installed first. Also make sure the camcorder is set on Play mode and that you have chosen which memory you want to transfer data from.
Alternatively, you can transfer the movies through iMovie, which is usually the easiest way. If you are not familiar with transfering and editing movie clips, I would recommend this.
Apart from this, as always, I referr to the user manual. Good luck!

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.
