Video to PC questions

I got a Video Cam for Christmas (Canon ZR45) and Im trying to figure out how to transfer video from the camera to the computer. Right now Im using the USB connection, but plan on getting the Firewire card this week with some of the $$ I got. I figured that with as much video that I see on this site, that someone would have the skinny on it so I dont have to comb through the book.
Thanks,
Chris

Uhh, get the firewire cable, plug it in, then use your video editiing software to donwload the video and edit it... I recommend Pinncale 9 because I know how to use it.

Re: Video to PC questions

If you're using Windows XP, you can use Windows Movie Maker free.... Should be on Windows Update as a download.

Re: Video to PC questions

Ive got windows Moviemaker now... Used it a bit at that. Can I send movies from MiniDV to the PC with the USB until I get the firewire?

I think it depends on your camera. Mine you can not... only Firewire. Most older DV Cams can only use the firewire as USB2.0 had not been as available at that time.

Re: Video to PC questions

I went and bought the firewire card and cable today. The wire was more than the adaptor Rockin and rollin now! I have 5 tapes as of now, and plan to get in the habit of going from DV tape to DVD as soon as possible with all my videos, so 5 should do me for a while. So far Windows moviemaker has been good, but I may try out pinnacle as I have heard good reviews...

Re: Video to PC questions

If you want some decent video editing software, try Pinnacle Studio 9. Frankly, I think USB2.0 is good enough for what you need, Firewire is faster, but I didn't think USB2.0 was slow at all.

Try Studio 9. Very simple program, and yet powerful enough to look semi-professional (it just takes time). I use it all the time for vids and stuff.

Be fast or be last.
