I do love my Sony DVD 201 camera but I find the Pixela software that came with it, Image Mixer 1.5, very difficult to use. I was thinking about going to Elements or Corel's Paint Shop but I am concerned that no software but Image Mixer will actually read my files. Should I be concerned or can I expect that I can use the Image Mixer to "capture" the movies and stills from the camera and then use Elements to edit and publish them? Even better, I have Xp operating system, maybe there is a way to get the movies and stills out of the camera and onto the hard drive without using Image Mixer at all?
Can you tell I'm a newbie?
Any help is very much appreciated!
