If you recently purchased a Canon HV20 you might be a bit surprised when you go to try and use any of the High Definition video you recorded with it. Canon didn't bother to include software on the CD to actually use the video you record. You might try hooking up your camera to your Windows XP machine via Firewire but that won't get you very far either. All I was able to do was to get it to the point where it would transfer DV, which wasn't acceptable to me so I didn't even bother to see if it would work. Instead I installed Windows Vista Ultimate on my desktop tonight. I installed my old Firewire card, hooked up the HV20 to the machine and I had Moviemaker importing video in no time, in HD even! I will let it import tonight and see what all I can do with the video in the morning. I have a tape with about an hour's worth of content on it, some of it for www.project240z.com so I hope to get that posted online tomorrow. Posted from...
Well... I'm back onto Vista yet again. I started running Vista on my main desktop back in the fall, sometime right around the RTM date. February came and I was getting sick of it. I was having a horrible time with Vista, I reinstalled XP and came to find out that most of my problems weren't actually Vista, but my network in my house, my domain controller was down, but up, and killing the network. Once I got that cleaned up XP was flying again. So this past weekend I got a Canon HV20 camcorder, and XP just won't handle it with Windows Movie Maker, which I use for all the videos I put together for my Datsun 240Z over at www.project240z.com. So tonight I reinstalled Windows Vista Ultimate. I just finished reinstalling Office 2007, and now have some more things to install, configure, and play with. Hope to try to transfer some video later tonight.... More on that if it happens! Technorati Tags: Vista, Videos, Windows Movie Maker, Canon, HD, Camcorder, HV20 Posted from...
