what editing software to use with my Sony DCR-SR200

by paulabeem / November 25, 2008 1:27 PM PST

Hello, I recently bought a Sony DCR-SR200 (movies are store in the hard drive) to replace a Sony DCR -TRV250 (image was in tape and transferred via Firewire). I always used Pinnacle studio 9 plus to edit my videos without any problems, but now with the new camera If I use pinnacle to edit, the sound and the image are off, the image frezees or gets distorted. Could any one tell me if there is a better software to use with my camera or if there is something I can do to make editting easy? Is there an incompatibility problem? codec?..please help

All codecs and software is installed so that there aren't any incompatibilities. But there aren't enough details about your computer to see whether or not you have sufficient processing power to handle the job. Please come back with those.

That *could* be the problem....

MPEG2 video requires more processing power than when you used the tape camcorder. I would try the demo of Sony Vegas Studio to see if it works for you.
