Thread: Software recommended for Sony HDD

    Default Software recommended for Sony HDD

    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering if anyone can recommend some software that will work with the files (Mpeg2) directly from my Sony HDD camcorder as it seems Windows Movie Maker doesnt support them. The simpler to use the better, i will only be doing basic video editings - free software is preferable

    Thanks for your help in advance

    First thing is mpeg video is hard to edit and come out well because its already compressed but since your stuck with mpeg I'd suggers vegas 7 its not free but you would not be happy with the free crap, remember you get what you pay for, Vegas has a lite version called studio platnum under $100 and its better the pinnacle studio and premiere elements plus you can upgrade to the full vegas later at a discount.

    If it must be free then stick with windows movie maker. Just convert your mpeg files to DV AVI files and edit from there.

    You could use a program called Vitrualdub in conjunction with a DV AVI codec. Read this thread for more info http://www.videoforums.co.uk/camcord...o-hdd-cam.html

    Hi Guys,

    Trying to use this VirtualDub to convert to DV AVI. Ive installed the codec but whenever I try to import one of the files from the camera I get this message:

    MPEG Import Filter: invalid pack at postition 3: marker bit not set; possibly MPEG-2 stream

    Any ideas whats wrong - ive tryed the stable and experimental verisons.

    Thanks
