Question about Video Cameras

1 Answer

Hi. I have video footage on a friends HiDef camcorder. When we transferred it into the enverio program and burnt it onto a dvd it wouldnt play in the dvd player. My friend said that its HD so will only play on a blu-ray player. How do i change this HD footage into a format that will play on a standard dvd player?Is it because there are two type of Enverio program? One that is HD and one that is not?

    Thank you.
    Yes Free ware would be great so any more links would be appreciated.
    I hope this works.
    What about if the HD file has been compressed which I think my friend did with the footage. How do I compress it first before I convert it with the link you gave me???

    Thanks your help has been great.
    Its hard because all the footage is still on my friends computer in the enverio program and on their camcorder.
    To get the footage onto my computer what is the best way??

    Should I download Enverio onto my laptop then go to my friends and transfer all the footage from the camera onto my laptop that way??
    Or can you suggest a better way.
    I have already tried copying files from his enverio program onto my external hardrive... doesn't work
    and have also tried burning it onto a disc using his computers enverio program.. that created the disc I have that wont play on a normal dvd player and that windows wont recognise on my computer

    Let me know what u think
    Thanks again

    Thanks again for all your help...
    I think once I have the footage all your advice will work
    Its hard though because at the moment all the video footage is on my friends computer in the enverio program and still also his camcorder.

    What is the best way for me to get the footage?
    Should I download the enverio program onto my laptop them transfer the video footage again onto my laptop into the enverio program??
    Or do you know a better way?

    I have already tried plugging my external harddrive into their computer and copying the files from his enverio program ... but it does't let us
    and I have also burnt the video footage onto a disc using his enverio program but all that gave me is the disc I have which cant be played on the dvd player and windows on my computer wont recognise it....
    and I also have the files as they were first given to me but I think they are compressed or something is wrong with them because when I play them in my laptop they are all pixelated and not fully clear.. do you know why this is?? These files have extension .m4v

    Any help now in regards to getting the footage onto my laptop so I can work with them

Yes this is the issue to make sure it is read in most dvd players you have to download into the computer (referring on one already made) and use a converter to make readable ..and after that burn it to the disk using a dvd burner like nero ..or Iso burn ..
for the other s in the future just switch to normal record and avoid this ..
I will link a converter ..but Im not sure if it will do the job in the free version ..
Anyway just try and let me know ..and I will look for another one ..
you probably will need something like this is not free but I will look for one to do the job if this is an issue ..:

    just try to insert it in that converter to see if it is recognized and try to convert in dvd or avi..Most players and all computers these days supports avi format ..and it saves space ..cause a 4.7 Gb dvd disk ..ripped in avi will take just about 700M..but you can also try to convert it in normal dvd ...and after that burn it with nero on a disk ..
    when you want to put a dvd movie on the disk make sure that is not bigger than the disk space ..
    I will link a good nero here just in case you dont have one ...and I dont think it needs decompressing cause it wil be done during the converting if this converter will see the format..
    also here is another one ..that seams to have a free trial ...

    Here you will find a Nero & with key and key generator ...just install and generate a key with one of the keygens..they work both ..
    you can also choose from nero menu to burn standard dvd ..and add the Hd file ..for to see if it is converting them during the process ..
    have a great day !

Getting footage from a cassette onto a mac

Sorry but the only way to transfer the tape is to be able to play it in a compatible camcorder or player. Then use one of the analog to digital converters "available on the internet" to transfer it to a PC.
Best bet is to ask some friends if they have an old camcorder that will be able to play that video cassette for you.
Sidenote: If the cassette is fairly new it might already be recorded in digital format, in which case you only need a compatible camcorder or player and a USB or Firewire cable to import it into your Mac

Hope this helps, don't forget to vote if the answers you seek are helpful.

How does one transfer videos and stills onto cd/dvd and/or a pc?

I find the best way is with your own computer. Using a system like iMovie you can hook up your camera, import the footage and from there burn it onto a CD/DVD. Hope that helps.

SHARP Viewcam z vl-Z500H-S Camcorder

To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!

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.
