I lately bought a Cannon VIXIA HD. With three computer's, all Vista, one Vista 64 I believed it might be straightforward to switch recordsdata from the Cannon to my computer's.
Effectively, not precisely. One of many promoting factors for me was a video by Dave Helmly, Adobe vide guru, singing the praises of the digital camera, it's functionality, and ease of use on Youtube.
I suppose the center of this challenge is the comparatively new, not fairly prepared for prime time file sort. I perceive new capability leads standardization – however my expertise is quaint.
I began by studying from the digital camera reminiscence – utilizing my first computer and couldn’t learn in by way of a USB port. I spoke to Canon and was suggested to try the USB port on the again of my computer. Utilizing that port made the distinction and I used to be capable of learn straight from the digital camera! Clearly, this compressed knowledge, with it's excessive pace switch necessities really seems within the distinction in a single port on a computer having the ability to learn it, one other not. The primary computer has Adobe CS4, Premiere Professional, software program which might learn these mts2 recordsdata however 'Home windows' doesn’t acknowledge them.
My second, barely newer computer, with most likely a sooner USB port, doesn’t have Premiere Professional CS4, Adobe's newest software program launch. It's Premiere Professional CS4 that acknowledges the mst0 file sort, not the working system. So you possibly can open the file with Adobe's software, however Home windows doesn’t acknowledge it? That's a technique of it.
Now the enjoyable half is studying the detachable SD reminiscence card. My second computer with sooner ports, acknowledges the cardboard, presents the recordsdata within the inflexible AVCHD documented listing construction – however doesn’t acknowledge the recordsdata. The primary computer doesn’t acknowledge the SD card. I place the cardboard within the SD reminiscence slot, and … nothing, no 'ding', no sound, no new drive. Nevertheless when you place the reminiscence card in a USB converter, then place in USB port, both the USB port in entrance or sooner port in again, it doesn’t acknowledge it. That is the computer with CS4. I can open recordsdata with Premiere Professional or After Results. Adobe CS4 does help this new format.
Sound a bit difficult? Effectively, it’s!
Most of this unpredictable habits belong to the lag time between new know-how and desktop techniques catching up.
It's type of 'future now' humorous too, habits we now have. Like when you possibly can immediately learn knowledge out of your SD reminiscence card, copy to your computer, make a composition, create a film, you start to comprehend, there's no want to repeat the whole lot backwards and forwards!
It's too straightforward to learn straight out of your reminiscence card with no tape studying time, with 'immediate' film accessibility!
I've had fairly a time with my first few days of excessive def, mts2 recordsdata.
So what’s AVCHD? A mix of excessive def compression with dolby sound that requires a really quick learn time. Despite the fact that Premiere Professional acknowledges the file format – you’ll discover a lag, as you’re monitoring the timeline, previewing your films. It merely cannot learn it as quick.
'AVCHD is a format for recording and playback of excessive definition video. Video is compressed in MPEG-Four AVC / H.264 format, and audio is recorded in Dolby Digital.  AVCHD and its brand are emblems of Panasonic Company and Sony Company. 
I do consider the long run is now. When your medium is little strong state reminiscence playing cards, when there is no such thing as a tape in your digital camera, while you notice you possibly can learn straight from these playing cards really a lot sooner than your onerous drive, and … however for backup for actual initiatives (versus experimenting , discovering your means by way of the mts2 woods), there actually is not any want to repeat to your onerous drive, you do really feel like the long run is now.
And we now have not even gotten to the manufacturing half but.
It's awkward, and I've tried copying the whole lot backwards and forwards on laptop computer, vista, vista64 – and there are some easy definitions –
One easy one is: CS4 is aware of AVCHD / mts2, and any earlier launch doesn’t.
However is it value it? nicely, in a phrase, sure. These pictures are good … and for all of the comedy and clumsiness of working by way of the file varieties and SDHC reminiscence and USB converters, and swapping between computer's –
there's a brand new world of shade and definition, HIGH definition for our Net pages.
And hey, we're simply getting began.
