Panasonic P2 Cam files want to edit them in vegas 9 platinum?
Question by : Panasonic P2 Cam files want to edit them in vegas 9 platinum?
Shooting a short with a Panasonic AG-HVX 200P
When I transfer the files to my pc the show up either as pics or broken down into folders that say video audio clip etc.. Having a hard time trying to get the pieces on my pc so I can start my timeline and start edditing.. Anyone gone thru this issue and know a cheap solution.

Sony vegas movie studio is not a professional video editor. Only the Sony Vegas Pro can work with DVCpro P2 files. P2 files are 50mbps datarate and movie studio is limited to 25 mbps data. you need to upgrade to a professional editor to use the P2 files. If you have a Panasonic AG dvx 200 camera, it will downconvert the P2 files to SD miniDV which can be loaded into vegas movie studio, or windows movie maker for that matter but you lose the HD resolution.
