Guide for transfering data to pc
Utilizing a USB computer connection and Hitachi's optional PC Editing Kit Software (DZ-WINPC3W), the DVD camcorders become external DVD home movie drives. Video can be transferred from the DVD camcorder to the PC for editing. After editing, the video can be transferred back to the DVD camcorder and recorded. This is where the strength of Hitachi's multi-format DVD camcorders gives consumers an unprecedented capability: 1. Record video utilizing the rewrite-able DVD-RAM format
2. Transfer the footage to the PC
3. Edit the footage on the PC
4. Transfer the footage back to the DVD camcorder and record it onto DVD-R for compatibility with most DVD players
Or if available, the video can be transferred by placing the disc into a PC's 4.7G byte DVD-RAM or DVD-ROM3 drive.
Editing steps to note:
Getting your Hitachi DVD ram vro to video cd or dvd! *note just changing the vro file to mpg does not work, what happens is you only see the 1st segment of your recordings. I went through insane amounts of hell figuring all of this out. The below method to my knowledge is the only way to do it without going insane!
Only Two Programs Needed:
Basic steps are here, let me know if you need more detail:
-Copy your .vro file to your hard drive
-load the vro file directly into dvd2avi
-do a save project (that will create 2 small files)
-close dvd2avi, you're done with it now
-now open tmpgenc
-load the video portion of your dvd2avi project (the d2v file)
-load your audio portion of your dvd2avi project (the other one)
-you're set! just output the file to svcd or whatever you like!
-need to edit the file? use tmpgenc mpeg tools and segment the clips you want, then merge them back together as 1 mpeg, it works great and no need for re-encoding!
if you still need more help regarding software for editing,here is the link
