Exporting them out to a compatible editable format can be somewhat tricky if you haven't worked with the hd-mpeg2 format very much.
Experience is the best teacher. I would start by working with short clips of about 2-3 minutes each.
You can use
"Share -> Create Video File -> HDV -> HDV1080i (HDV) which yields 25000kbs (TransportStream Format - TS), mainly used for writing back to tape.
"Share -> Create Video File -> HDV -> HDV1080i (For PC) which yields 25000kbs (Program Stream Format - PS), Most common for general playback.
"Share -> Create Video File -> Custom & set all the parameter settings the same as exporting in MovieFactory 5 or 6.
"Share -> Create Video File -> "YOUR HDV TEMPLATE"
***NOTE: The HD-DVD Option for 1440/1920 uses "Lower Field First", if your video is upper_field_first this option should not be used.
***My preference would be to use the " HDV -> HDV1080i (For PC)" Selection
How to create a "HDV Template":
Ulead Website FAQ:Tools -> Make Movie Templates Manager -> Mpg Format -> Compression tab = MPEG2 (then set all the encoding parameters appropriately) save this template and apply it when going to "Share -> Create Video File -> Your Template".
Questions can be posted in the Video Studio Forum.Q:
When I import video from an AVCHD camcorder, is there anything I need to watch out for?
If you wish to capture the video from your camcorder (Hard-dsc or DVD) you should start VideoStudio first, then connect your device. In the capture step, select ¡§Import from DVD/DVD-VR¡¨ and select your device ¡V it will usually show up with a drive letter like a hard drive. Then click import, and it will offer you the choice to select the clips that you want to import and edit.
