Thought it might be good to have a thread discussing how to work with NEX video footage.
I'll start it off with my newbie questions... I would like some help/advice on how to work with some video footage that I've shot with my NEX-7.
I shot using the AVCHD in 60p 28M (PS) mode. Now I'm trying to figure out how to download the video footage to my PC (Windows 7 64-bit) in a usable way.
A few specific questions:
What's the best way to download the video (which sits on the camera as a set of files in a folder) to my PC so that everything stays intact? LR4 only recognizes the .MTS file - is that all I need?
What is a reasonably priced video editing software that will allow me to work on these files to do fairly basic edits (trim/clip/fade, music overlay, etc). I don't need anything really fancy, but need something that can work with this AVCHD 60p video footage.
If I want to post the footage online using something like Vimeo, what do I need to do to convert the video footage to appropriate format? I'd like to post HD video, but not sure how all the format conversions work.
Thanks in advance for any tips on these questions.
