Sony camcorder file incompatibility

  A&D 21:10 06 Jan 2006

Having been given a Sony DVD203e camera for Christmas I was eager to try producing my first movie. It took me 2 frustrating days before I discovered that the mpeg files produced by this camera can only be read by the Picture Package software provided and not by any editors like Adobe Premiere (yes I had gone out and bought that!). I can get round this by using Picture Package to create a vob file on the camera DVD first which Premiere can then read. But why doesn't Sony say this in their literature? I'm writing this in case other novices are thinking what I was thinking!!
