Not sure this is the right section, but here goes.
I've recently bought a Sony HDRCX350V so I can video the grandkids...or annoy them, whichever your take
Also using Pinnacle 14, which I've gotten my head 'round for getting pic onto computer, & basic editing - at this stage. My problem is saving the finished vid.
Done so much reading here over the last couple of days, but in the dark I remain :(
From camera to computer, the file/s get saved as #####.MTS, but what do I save them as once I've finished editing/cutting out the rubbish bits?
I've saved my test shot as .m2ts, .mp4 & a few in between. Some are hugh, some are small - & terrible.
Below are screen shots of what's available in Pinnacle.
