    Video Editing

    Morning all,

    Some of the kids have recorded footage from their GCSE projects on to a sony handycam dcr-dvd100e.


    I am trying to import the footage into Sony Vegas software as recommended by sony. It appears to import it ok, I can see the footage. But there is no sound.

    Files on the camera:
    VR_MOVIE.VR
    VR_MANGR.IFO
    VR_MANG.BUP

    Do i need to convert them to something different before going ahead with an import?
    Or should I try a different piece of software?

    Thank you

    Import

    I have found thaT THE QUICKEST way to do this is to hook the camera up to a dvd recorder if you have one ( I bought a vhs /dvdrw 80 ) then use Firewire or usb or rgb to connect to recorder and record straight to DVD.
    You can then load this into editing software if required if not saves loads of space on my SAN

    I had exactly the same issue using a sony hard drive based camcorder, they're absolute piles of carp.

    Unless you've got a A/V capture device?

    Copy the largest file to a HD and rename it .mpg. Might work.
