    Default Newbie having problems with HDV footage I want to edit

    Hi There,

    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

    I would recommend re-capturing the tape as a .avi file. Except you probabley don't have the camera any more so you can't.

    You should be able to play the file in media player. To convert it ? You give THIS a try. They claim to be able to do it.
