Hi,

I am trying to help an old friend who is trying to add music

tracks to the video clips he has made on his Panasonic

DMRE95. ('Dubbing??')

Surpisingly, this is the first time he's tried after many years of

having the unit.


I would like to help, and I am familiar with basic Video

editing on a PC, but not with the Panasonic DMRE95, and the

problem is compounded by the fact I have to talk over the

phone. I have just downloaded the manual, and I don't want to

lose sight of the wood fort the trees.

I am assuming he is still better to do this on his Panasonic

DMRE95 rather than try to edit on a PC using more software.


The end result he wants is to be able to make 20 copies for his

friends for Christmas. I assume he will use DVD +R but I

would like to take your advice about whats best to use as an

output format for the Panasonic.

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum.


Unfortunately I have to disappoint you here.

This sort of manipulation, dealing with a separate audio track is just not possible on this sort of recorder.

It could only realistically be achieved by feeding in an external video source and feeding the music audio source simultaneously. Very coarse and unwieldy.

That kind of editing really needs to be done on PC.



Regarding output ... '+' type discs are always best avoided on Japanese origin machines such as this because the material is always limited to 4:3 aspect.

That may not matter if the original material is 4:3.... Otherwise use DVD-R.

Thanks Gavtech.

At least I know where to go on expediting this. Appreciated.

Final questions from anyone.
---------------------------------

I'm confident that he will be able create DVD -R backup disk at the higher quality setting, in order to 'get the video off the unit'.

The outcome is to create DVD -R disks

  • What video and audio format is the output from the Panasonic on the (backup?) DVD -R??

  • ...and then what do you recommend to use on the PC to edit?
I am simply going to advocate he uses Windows Movie Maker on XP to make his learning curve easy..... but is WMM appropriate for the Panasonic DVD's, and does this actually need Nero on his PC???​
  • Or would you recommend another free alternative to edit/write to DVD on the PC ??

Thanks in advance
