Editing videos from a JVC GZ-MG360 camcorder.

by GodfatherITB / July 27, 2008 8:50 AM PDT

I just bought a JVC GZ-MG360 today. I took some videos and was able to get them onto my computer with no problem, and I can play them in Windows Media Player, but I can't edit them in Sony Vegas. Apparently the file type used for the videos can't be opened in Vegas. It says on the box "MPEG2 video recording", which I thought could be edited in Vegas. When I put them onto my computer the file type is ".MOV".

Does anyone know how I can get the files to change to something editable in Sony Vegas? Any help would be much appreciated.

That's called TRANSCODING.

Or conversion from one video type to another. I just finished such a conversion and used a freebie. NO! It's free and not entirely friendly so I expect some will be troubled by it's interface. But it did the conversion albeit I don't have your files so I can't test it.

Here it is ->

YES, it didn't list .MOV but did a conversion on a file I have here.
NO, I don't offer support for such but hope it works for you.

Thank you for the feedback. I can't seem to get it to convert my files, but I'll mess around with it for a while and see if I can get it to work. Thanks again.

I wondered if it would handle your file.

There are other titles out there including what came with the camcorder.
