best way to download video

Postby andra » Wed Sep 25, 2013 3:22 pm

I have about 4 hours of footage on mini dv tapes that a friend wants to put in his computer and on usb flash drives...no editing needed....my camera has dv ports and s-video and rca jacks (panasonic agdcv7)....computer has usb ports and the typical a/v input for a laptop.

What is the best way to do this?

4 hours?? I would use Low Tech. 8-) Put on USB thumb drive and overnight ship to customer.

I'm guessing that would be the easyist and best way too...basically just take the laptop outa the loop and plug a usb flash drive into one of the usb slots on the back of my prestige and send it there. Should work I guess....I've never tried it before on the prestige...

Btw Bob it's not for a client, it's for a friend in the Army who is in Bosnia (yes...we still have a few soldiers there!?)lol....it's footage of his son and daughter in little league football action...she's a "mini-cheerleader"! It's four games and halftime action of the lil midgets! They're so awesome...it'll put a smile on his face. :mrgreen:

I don't think there's a feature in Smart Edit software that will allow to export video to a thumb drive. I think you may have to load the video into a PC and then from a utility or editing program in the PC export to a thumb drive.

Using a Prestige with "not many bells and whistles" I think I would use the fire wire output of the camera into the prestige and just make standard DVDs. best chance of not running into any compatability issues. Even if his computer won't play it,(which it could with a Codec patch) a DVD player (with region code 1 or universal region code) would.
