Sorry If I am at wrong section or this has been asnwered before.
I recently hired a SONY HVR A1E (HDV Tapes) and recorded an event in the top quality setting 1080i.
I then migrated this via firewire onto my laptop but the only prog that would see the camera was MSMM and it transferred the file as a MS DVR file ?? I have done some mess about editing before using a Videora product but it couldnt see camera and I would like to use this again.
I try converting to AVI/MP4/MOV and it takes hours only to be out of synch music / video and bad quality.
I am thinking of giving up and handing tapes into a company who will transfer onto DVD for £30 but the idea was to let me do this as a mini-project / intro into editing.
Any help would be appreciated but currently the MSDVR files work perfectly(Large as they are) and I do not have a camera presently to try and transfer. (waiting on payday) therefore I have to either go to company for transfer or convert files I have currently.
Thanks in advance for any advice
