Firewire in widget for NV-GS50

I have read that you can get a 'widget' to re-instate the inward feeding firewire connection to allow the recording of edited movies back on to the camera tape.  Where does one get this 'widget' and how is it done?

Hi I would like to down load onto a dvd the film I have captured


Hello,
There are several solution for this issue.
  1. connect to a computer through firewire(IEEE1394) and download to an editing software e.g Windows movie maker native with windows or third party software such as Adobe premiere.Some editing is required to top and tail your video and export as a suitable file for making DVD. import into Nero or Roxio for final burn in DVD format.
  2. If you have access to a DVD recorder, connect camera to DVD recorder through Firewire cable and make DVD straight away.Do not forget to finilise the disc for compatibility with other DVd players.
Hope this helps

How to edit / remove the Attribution Widget from a blogger page


Most if not all blogger templates come with a attribution widget that you are unable to remove however you can edit it although this is limited and you need to know where to look on the HTML template.

When you have completed this simple edit you will be able to remove the widget like all the others.

First search for these lines of code about 3/4 way down the template.

With the older templates all you need to do is to Comment-out the code that displays the Attribution gadget, by putting it inside these characters <!-- --> so it ends up looking like this you must also make sure that you have checked the Expand Widgets Box. Accept it then save the widget.
Then save the template and that is.

In the newer XML all you need to do is to change the locked='true' to read locked='false' this will allow you to remove it should you choose to.

Plz tell me how to download a latest video editing software for my sony handycam


Losing your Handycam software is the best thing that could have happened to you all. It stinks. Firewire eliminates the need for the crummy camcorder software. Basically, you need to install, or have installed, a Firewire card in your PC, then buy a Firewire cable. Then WinDV software will work perfectly to import video. USB connections, and the USB cable, are ideal for downloading digital still images from cameras. Running footage requires a very large bandwidth, which basically is the throughput from camera to computer. Think of a funnel with a small opening. The small opening is USB. Make the opening 4 times as large and nothing backs up in the funnel. The large opening is Firewire. Anyways, by using a Firewire connection, you can bypass the camcorder software and use "real" video editing software.

As for the video editing software
You can use Sonys movie studio http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/moviestudiohd
Or
Windows Movie Maker - The best video editing tool for Windows that's free and chances are you already have it installed on your computer as part of XP SP2. Microsoft Movie Maker has all the basic video editing tools plus a good collection of transitions and video effects.

There's an in-built movie titler that lets add you styles to text titles including ticker taps, zoom and even the scroll effect. And if you are feeling lazy, just hit the AutoMovie command to have the entire video produced for you with intervention.

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.

Can't record audio


I have converted home videos on my PC this way. I have a Sony camcorder whose output connects
to my firewire card in the PC. I also use windows Movie maker. While it is recording, I don't hear the audio. After saving the file and playing it back, I hear the audio, along with seeing the movie. Windows movie maker allows me to stop, start, and record the movie. It has complete control over the
Sony camcorder by using the firewire port on the PC.

Filming transfer


Several steps are involved. You will need a firewire or USB cord to connect your camera to your computer. You will need a video capture application on your PC. Macs come with this program, I-Movie. Once captured, the movies can be edited. Your PC will need a combination drive to burn a DVD from the captured material. An easier way: Take your camera output and feed it directly into a DVD recorder. No editing, but it is a one-step process. I use both methods.

About transfering data from camera to pc


OK. To transfer the movie to your computer you need the following.
A "firewire". It probably came with your camera, look up the manual to identify it. If not buy one, they are only a couple of $$$.

The firewire plugs into your camera (behind one of those "little doors" on the camera), then into your computer. You must have a firewire connection on your computer. If it is modern then you will find it there, if it is older then you may have to buy a firewire card. They are available for either PC or laptop (provided your lap top is reasonably modern).

You then need to install and start your NLE (Non Linear Editor) in other words a video editing programme. Panasonic usually includes one with the camera. If not then you will need to buy one as Windows Movie Maker, that comes with Windows, works OK but is a bit limiting, but if you want to use it.. go ahead it will work OK.

Failing that if you are a beginner the i would suggest Pinnacle Studio 11, it is easy to learn and until you get more advanced it will do everything you want it to do. Just don't "rush" the programme, if it wants to wait and work, then wait with it!.
Adobe Premiere Elements as a medium experienced user is good and sets you up for its big brother Premiere pro (which is what i use) Other than that, Sony Vegas or Edius. There are lots of very usable NLEs out there, just chose one and learn it.

With the camera and the computer connected via the firewire, Read the NLE manual and learn how to capture to your NLE. Then "voila" your video is in the NLE for you to edit it with. Make sure you have enough battery power to take you through the capture process, or hook up your camera to the power cable that came with the camera.(best)

Please forgive me if I have been too simple for your level of knowledge.

Can't transfer dubbed audio (secondary sound) using firewire.


Audio Dubbing on DV: Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output. Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings. Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.
