"The SDR- H60 ships with a very limited bit of software for editing"
This seems to surprise many but for years you never got video editing software due to the costs involved. Now they ship limited versions so nothing new here.
Let's see what software allows editing?
"You can record high-quality MPEG-2 footage and deliver more than 500 lines of horizontal resolution, depending on camcorder quality. Some video cameras will also record in AVCHD or H.264 formats, giving you more flexibility for recording." - Cnet.
So there you are. ANY video editing software that (a) runs on Vista 64 that supports (b) those video formats is good to go.
Look at Sony Vegas.
To anyone who can help,
I bought a Panasonic SDR-H60 a few months ago. Just recently my computer crashed and I purchased a new Dell Desktop that is really nice. The only problem is that it has stupid Vista Ultimate which I have learned is a 64 bit operating system. The Videocam Suite 1.0 software that came with the SDR-H60 was written for a 32 bit operating system. I called Panasonic who was not helpful at all, and learned that they don't have any software that is compatible with a 64 bit operating system! None! So they told me that they could not help me at all. And could not tell me how to get my video to my computer.
I am not an idiot with technology but I have zero experience with video. Is there a 3rd party software that is free, or cheap that can do this? Can I do it with moviemaker? Basically, can someone tell me how I can move my sweet videos of my little 2 year old to my home computer and how I can edit them!
Thanks in advance...
