Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 DVD Camcorder
I want to use editing software other than imagemixer and can not upload video (either by finalized disc or usb connection) any where else other than in sonys own software. I would like to save in "my videos" but it will not let me. Any suggestions
That's one of the inherent disadvantages of using a direct-to-DVD Camcorder.
2 solutions that immediately come to mind are
1. Export the unedited video from imagemixer or whichever proprietary software you're currently using. This is done in the same manner you'd otherwise output video to digital files. Chances are, it'll be under File>Export. Output the video as a quicktime, MPEG, AVI, WMV, or other widely accessible video file system, and it should be easily opened in other software.
2. Use a DVD ripping program, such as Free DVD ripper from GoBuySoftware (http://www.gobuysoftware.com/Free-DVD-Ripper.html) for PC or Mac the Ripper for OS X (http://www.mactheripper.org/), both free, to export to an exchangeable format.
I hope this does the trick! If not, please let me know what specific gear you're using :)
