    The camera you have is a hard-drive based model. It records video in MPEG format which is awkward to edit. Your editing options will open up if you convert your clips into DV AVI files before editing.

    There are many threads on these forums which discuss such conversion. Have a search and see what you can find.

    Good luck.

    This might do it: STOIK Video Converter (STOIK Video Converter 2.0) and it's free. Choose DV file output.

    Ah.

    Stoik might be struggling with mpeg2 files.

    Try Super instead: (Download links towards bottom of page)

    If I was intending to convert the footage from your camera into a format best-suited for editing, I would choose these settings for best output:

    1. Output Container: avi

    2. Output Video Codec: DV Digital Video

    3. Output Audio Codec: WAV-(pcm.....)

    4. In Audio Box, set Sampling Freq to 48000

    I notice that Super has loads of output formats, including 'vob DVD compliant'. I really haven't played about with this setting though.

    There isn't much help documentation for Super. However, if you're feeling brave, you could take a look at their user forums:

    SUPERforum.
