Import Video files from Camcorder to Computer
Some camcorders record the video to tape, the older
Mini DV camcorders using DV-Avi
However most High Definition camcorders record
the video to either memory cards or internal hard drives, its these types
I wish to discuss.
|Using Video Studio to Import Digital
Video Studio can also be used to transfer the video from the camera's memory cards using Import Digital Media.
Again connecting the SD card or camcorder to USB.
Using this method the files will be re-named to use a date format
The date is the actual recording date/time which can be useful, the downside is the length of file names.
Unfortunately there is no options to set our own file names.
Right click the timeline and choose Import Digital Media -will import to the timeline.
From File - Insert Media File to Library - Insert Digital Media will populate the library
Create a new library page before using this option.
Now you should see the Select Import Source Folder showing to the right
Navigate to the Stream folder and select -- press Ok
|This window may display a list previously
selected import folders, but should include the current Stream Folder
Select the folder and press Start to open the main import window shown below.
Here we can select the individual clips to import by placing a tick on the thumbnail.
If we require all clips to be imported there is an icon to do just that "Select all Clips"
To the bottom of the panel select our Working Folder, this is where the files will be saved.
Finally pressing Start Import will copy the files from the SD card to the working folder
and insert the a clip to the timeline or library.
