The Sony Cybershot is a still camera. How did "import a tape" from it?
How did you get the video from the camera into your computer?
Sony Cybershot DSC-W350 also records HD video. And it fits in your pocket. Great for getting footage at concerts, on rollercoasters, etc. But I can't edit the video I get on it, on FCP.
My last attempt to edit that footage on FCP resulted in advice on Codec, and me eventually downloading something called Handbrake to convert the files into something I can work with in FCP. This just barely worked. The clips were only slightly more accessible. It was very difficult to play them in FCP, find edit points, etc.
I'll check out those links from John T. Smith and do some more research, but meanwhile if someone has a quick answer, it is much appreciated.
Welcome to the forum.
Along with the questions posed (and steps to answer them) in John T's reply, do not forget to list the steps that you have performed, per Steve's questions. Those answers will be very important, and like hold the clues.
