Sony DCR-TRV38 Transfering video to dvd at a high quality.

I am trying to transfer video from my camcorder to my computer at dvd qualtily so I can burn it with my DVD burner but the ImageMixer software that came with the camera is super low quality. Is there any other software that will read off my Sony camcorder, if not what do I need to do to get DVD quality images off my camcorder and save them to my machine? Thanks.

Many 8mm camcorders were analog. As such, you will lose a little as the content is played and digitised. But having done this, the degradation over time will be arrested. The drawback to many is the time involved. I figure about 4 hours of work for each hour of video. Not all that time is me at the keyboard, but as the computer does it's work.

Wait a second. You have a DVcam which is at that quality so how can you get to DVD quality? You may need a better camera!

Transfer video to computer (sony dcr-trv38)


I had a same issue but now I found one way using the fireware that comes with the DCR-TRV38. I tried on my windows XP service pack 2.
1. hook up the fireware cable both in sony and the computer. If your computer does not have fireware card, you need one.
2. switch the camera button from "off" to "camera"
3. after few seconds you will see new hardware found and will ready for use. you may also see pop up window to capture the video if you have Microsoft Windows Movie Maker (WMM).
4. open the editing s/w and capture the video. I used the WMM which gives many option to capture the video (ie:DV-AVI, high quality format and many more)

hope this helps.

Sony DCR-TRV38 - cannot burn movie to DVD


I found the best way of editing the footage from these cameras is to put the DVD disc into your computer and copy the contents of the VIDEO_TS folder onto another folder on your hard drive. The uses a video editing application which is specifically designed for the MPEG format. I would highly recommend the low cost "Womble MPEG Video Wizard" which is available for a 30 day trial at www.womble.com.
