To tell you the truth, I haven't even looked at the content management utility. Sounds interesting and if it works as suggested, it may shorten the workflow. I promise to check it out. Thanks for the suggestion.
First of all it isn't called "content Management Utility" but I knew what you were talking about.
Curiosity kept me up another hour on this!
Well this is a game changer, indeed.
The procedure is pretty simple:
1. Connect your TD-10 to the computer with USB. Suggest you connect the power supply.
2. Ignore the PMB if it launches automatically.
3. Launch Vegas Pro
4. Select device explorer and your TD 10 will show up as a drive letter. In Device properties you can select a folder to import the selected clips. Then just select Import! Simple.
Cool features- You will get a complete breakdown on the clip meta data in a format that is easy to see. You can preview the clip before importing. and you get a thumbnail to see what the clip is.
Once your clip is imported you can put them to the timeline for editing.
Using the Device Explorer, you will get a slight variation to tne file name. It is better than either direct copy or PMB. The name begins with the MTS camcorder sequence number followed by the Date followed by the time of day separated by underscore_. Finally the file extension is MTS, not m2ts.
More good news: Like in PMB the clips that exceed 2Gb are properly stitched together for one clip file with synced audio.
I think I just retired PMB!
If you can't locate the Device Explorer, just do a search for it in the Vegas Help file!
