i keep seeing posts from people here about using the HDWriter software. Admittedly, i haven't read all 46 pages of the thread,but is there something wrong with just pulling out the SD card and then copying the files over using Explorer, etc?
I don't plan to transcode for mobile, or create physical disks, most will be played as files via MediaCenter/MPC-HC, etc..
How do you get the files that are stored in the Camera's memory?
I use HDW for simple edits like clipping segments, adding some simple titles and joining the clips. It was one of the few software that could handle 1080/60p video back then. I got used to it and never bothered to learn other more full-featured apps to do this simple editing.
