Newtek SpeedEDIT -short cut to editing MP4 clips

I found a shortcut to edit the Sony EX1's raw MP4 media clips in SpeedEDIT.

NOTE: SpeedEDIT can edit the raw MP4 clips. But using the Sony Clip Browser put each clip in it's own seperate folder, requiring extensive time to open each folder to copy the clips one at a time.


SHORTCUT:

-Put your SxS card in card reader.

-Open Explore (right click on the Start button). Do this twice so you have two windows open. Create a new folder for your MP4 media.

-Right Click on the BPVA folder in the reader drive and open Search.

-Type in *MP4 and search.

-Copy all MP4 files to your new media folder.

-Start editing in Speed Edit. SpeedEDIT will edit raw MP4 files.



I hope this Shortcut will help others searching for a faster way to get your MP4 clips to your timeline.

I have looked at Speed Edit from time to time.

How long have you used it? and what sort of length projects do you work on.

Any major criticisms of Speed Edit?

I have had it for a year and a half and love it. I was looking for Fast & Easy and this is the fastest and easiest of the NLE systems IMO. No criticisms. My project lengths are from 15 to 120 minutes in length. I average around 100+ GB of media shot per project.

I would love to try speed edit but there is no trial download. This is a business mistake on thier part. I have contacted the company and they advised that I could get a copy from a vendor. I contacted a vendor and no results. This could be a fantastic product but most of us will never know for sure

I agree. I saw a demo at a trade show and spoke to several friends that had it and loved it.

Try posting on their forum and ask if anyone in Atlanta would be willing to let you try theirs out. Maybe you can visit someone and try it out.

I think it's one of the best kept secrets in fast and easy editing. I had been editing with Media 100 since 1996 and didn't want to leave it until I found sometimes as fast and easy, SpeedEDIT fits my needs.
