I have just been given a Samsung VP-DC165 which is a DVD camcorder. Me and my brother edit in Sony Vegas 5, until now we could only edit videos in .avi from my small Canon digital camera (not camcorder).
My mum has given us this DVD camcorder and we have discovered it isn't the easiest to edit. Mini DV are supposed to be better.
If there is a way to edit in Sony Vegas 5 I would like to keep this camcorder instead of changing it to a Mini DV.
We have downloaded VirtualDub MPEG2 and like this we convert files to avi, in order to edit them with Sony Vegas 5. The sync between the audio and the video is bad, and gets worse as the video plays.
Does anyone use Sony Vegas to edit videos from a DVD camcorder? What do you do??
Any advice of any sort will be appreciated. We feel dissapointed as we have spent a lot of money and can't edit the videos!
