should probably try it first. The slowness means your computer is too slow for the load, but that may be improved since the latest Vegas version is pretty efficient. If that doesn't work, you may need a faster computer. You should probably post your computer's specs.
i just bought the HG20 camcorder based on the cnet editor and user reviews...i like it but have a couple of problems:
all videos i make play well on the camcorder. however, when i export the videos to my pc, they are jerky and skip several frames when i play them in the image mixer 3 se software that was included? is this due to a setting i messed up on the camcorder? i have it setup to run the highest resolution and the standard high quality 24mbps, frame rate is 60i. i don't have the best pc but it's not horrible either: vista home basic, 2gb ram, intel pentium 4 cpu 3.00 ghz
also the video is grainy...i haven't set any effects to the camcorder. for the highest quality video i wouldn't expect it to look that bad.
i haven't really changed any settings. i am very new to using camcorders, so it's probably my mistake...i just don't know what to do.
also, how do i export videos so something other than image mixer can play them? does anyone recommend a video editing/viewing software for me to get? does the sony vegas software only asupport sony camcorders?
thanks for any help to a complete newbie!
