normally I use Movie Studio v10
Strictly this is pre-Vegas . . . as I have some clipos about 10min long of wildlife - and the blighters are only present for a few seconds . . . .
So, I'm wondering if I can "edit" the clip before saving it?
(I save to PC "video" HDD and some external HDDs - so the "wasted" footage will be increased by at least 3x )
In the past I've saved such files and then deleted them from the SDHC card - with the result the camera sticks new (eg tomorrow) files in their place, creating vid clips that are out of date-order. This may be the way I've set up the camera, but I'm willing to try creating a shorter file (of the same number) so when the original is removed, I can record a short-replacement using the PC . . . . will the camera notice, I wonder?
I understand that if you edit files on the vegas(or any Editor) Timeline, then the file is likley to lose "something" - rather like continually opening a jpeg . . . . perhaps someone can advise...
Any suggestions . . . or improvements to Method, etc...?
In the days of Cine (ahhh), you could pause your camera, so only "good stuff" was recorded . . . but now you have to close the file, so Reopening it causes a massive delay (unless you have PRE- I don't) - so I let it run, and run, and run.
