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!

How can I transfer from tape in camera onto dvd


The best way to do this is to download the video onto a computer. Using video software (there is a lot available on the internet), edit your video and then send it to the DVD burner.

How to transfer from the tape to computer to burn a dvd


Hi,
To transfer your canon data in tape, you need to install driver of canon mini dv in your computer. Then paired your canon with computer trough usb to make data transferring. To burn a dvd disc you need to install software for dvd burner like Nero S in your computer to edit your AV and burn into DVD disc. Make sure your computer have DVD R/W to do so.

Panasonic SDR-H18 Camcorder I get no audio


I found, from the Best Buy Geek Squad, that all Hard Drive Video cams use a audio format that only works with their hardware. If you burn a DVD (using their software) is audio will be present.

Can not make DVD from ImageMixer.


The reason they are not compatable is the software may be set up for a particular type of DVD, or may be configured for " overburing " Usually reducing the size of the video using compression is your best bet. If this does not work, you may be able to convert the video into an mpeg, mp4 or avi format, and use another software to create the DVD for burning. Nero has such tools to create DVD's.

Also, be sure that you are converting the movies to DVD standard format. Some software allows you create the video, and then does not convert it to DVD format.

You may also check to see if there are patches / updates available for your software.

Video memory full on camcord, how to burn it onto a dvd?


First be sure to have installed ImageMixer software that came with the camera. If you can't find the disc go here... http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=DCRSR40&LOC=3 then select your operating system and then select imagemixer to download.

Step 1:
Place camera onto docking station, connect usb cable to computer, open camera door, turn on camera. Imagemixer should open automatically, if not open up imagemixer.

Transfer to Computer:
Select "Viewing and Editing", then select "handycam" tap, click on "▼" (arrow) facing down, then click "movies". Place a check mark on each movie you wish to move to the computer then click "Options" tab (lower left corner) and see where the movies will end up once you click "Import to computer".

Burn to DVD:
Be sure you have a DVD drive that can write to DVD's. Will have DVD R/RW on the face of the drive. Place a blank DVD into drive. Follow Step 1. Then click "One Touch DVD Burn" from the imagemixer menu. Follow any instructions on screen.

Or you can choose to use Windows Explorer and select the drive letter that is your camera's harddrive and move/copy/cut/paste files directly from this location to another.

Panasonic VDR-D250 - I want to transfer the video taken on the 4" disc to usable DVD probably via pc - help please


Pinnacle Studio will work with your camcorder. You can either plug the camcorder into the computer and capture the video to your hard drive or you can import the DVD into the hard drive.

Looks like Imagemixer isn't available anymore according to a Google search.

Sony HC40 - Burn DVD w/o Sony PC


Don't worry about the manual. You just need to get a firewire cable (since you have a laptop, you probably need a 4 pin to 4 pin cable, but check the port in your laptop to make sure it is a 4 pin. If the port size is the same as it is in your camcorder, you need a 4pin to 4pin cable). For transferring video to your laptop and burning DVD, use the software which came with your DVD burner. If you do not have one, try Dazzle software, it works well.

How Do I Transfer My Videos To DVD?


In order to transfer your videos to DVD, your computer must be equipped with a DVD Burner and you must use the software provided with the burner. Contact your computer manufacturer for further assistance. If your computer is equipped with a CD burner, you can transfer the video to a CD after you've converted the video to AVI or MPEG format. Playback of the CD will be limited to computers and possibly DVD players that support those formats.
