Use the Sony software to transfer to the PC. It will bring in full clips and rename to the date and time they were taken and place in a directory named the date of transfer to the PC. I use Edius to edit and use native files. I also have Vegas 11 and PP CS6 they will all edit native but need a powerfull PC. PP needs the most power Edius the least powerful to edit realtime. I would not convert unless you have to because your PC is not powerful enough.
