Do other companies have there own flormat? Why couldn’t they just use like MPEG or .avi?
Is it a good flormat to record in or will it be obsolute later in the future…like should I return the camcoreder?
Also do video cameras for $500–does the video get pixelated when you enlarge the video to full screen. Mine has been and I was wondering if the editing (Studio) is making the quality lower. I know I am recording in the highest level of detail!
Will more camcorders use the .mod flormat in the future?
Hey Ryan3078, I do have that converter and it is working but I have to wait for it to import in real time, also the audio will get off with the video and that is one of the reasons why I bought this new camcorder! I think the new versions of Premiere
Elements and Studio support .MOV so I will try that.
Those employess at Best Buy know NOTHING about videography!
I am using Studio 10.
It wants something (Studio) to convert with.
Have you heard of a camcorder that would do this before?
I have tried to change the extention to .avi but then it wants some extention to edit two layer audio and video again.
I got this from some JVC person in Japan that can’t speak English…but I am not exactly sure what it means…does it mean that I won’t be able to edit the video AT ALL?
"I understand you are inquiring about transferring your files to your pc.
Unfortunally at this time in order for you to edit your files or see
your files on pc you will need to install the software that came with
the camcorder. You will not be able to convert the MOD. Files to
anything else unless you use the software to do so. If you need
assistance with this you will need to contact cyberlink at
http://www.cyberlink.com . Please open the attached file to download the
software guide. I’m certain this will help you in your efforts.
We, at the JVC companies, regret the difficulties you have experienced
with your JVC product, as well as any inconveniences those difficulties
may have caused."
I can’t believe someone would make a camcorder this horrible! After all the positvive reviews I have heard with it!
I hate to post again, but I looked in the manual and it shows the files as .MOD files! How will I edit the video?
I looked at this page on Camcorderinfo.com
Video can be copied directly to a computer via a USB 2.0 connection, however, footage appears as .MOD files. You can manually change the file extension to .MPG to view the footage, but audio will not accompany the file.
Does that mean I won’t be able to edit the video on the camera at all as long as I have it!? Are there some cameras that aren’t editable? I forked over alot of $$ and now this is making me dissipointed! }:-@
WAIT! it is actully in .mod
when I import it into Pinnacle Studio I have to purchase an activation key for it to allow "two level" encoding and decoding…hmm.
Do you know how I could get it in like a standered flormat like my old Hi8 camcorder did.
I am off to Chicago for the next three or so days!
So thanks again for all your help and any new help would be awesome!
I am using the Power Ciniama software like the manual said to get it off the hard drive. IT is coming in at that flormat as .MOD — is this good? IT won’t work with my video editor…how can I change this.
I access the data by using the USB cable and PowerCinima starts. This lets me access the back up part. (JVC told me to do this) then it backs it up to the folder I had made…and then when I open it it won’t beacuse it is an .mod file. If I change the extention to .avi it will work.
What is wrong? Will I have to do this every time?
How will I put this into my editing software (Pinnacle Studio) since you don’t really "capture" anything?
