You need to connect your camcorder to your computer through a firewire. Next you need an editing program. If you have no software, someone may be able to suggest free trial downloads. If you are interested in purchasing software, I suggest Final Cut Express if you have a Mac computer.
Try googling “free video editing software” or similar phrases to look for a software download.
