I have waded through the hundreds of posts in the main HD700 threads before and I am not going to go through it again.

What I need is a software that I can at least joing all the MP4 files into just one, either as its native MP4 files or change it to another format.

Adobe Premiere that came with HD700 is painfully slow (I have dualcore CPU and 2G ram) as it was trying to join a 10 minutes movie in estimated 4 hours! Of course I did not go through with that.

On the old C6 days I used MP4CAM2AVI which was very good. Actually I tried that with my HD700 files and it happily join many MP4 files of 20 minutes in length in just 2 minutes. But the resulting files was not playable.

I know I can do it within the cam itself but I like to do it on a PC.

I want the resulting file to be playable in PS3 (as the original does) and can be burnt to a playable DVD.

Any recommendations/experience?

try and download a newer version of MP4Cam2AVI as it works for me with the HD1000 files or install klite codecs in order to play the files.

Thank you. I did not think of that. The latest MP4CAM2AVI does work in joining them and playable in PC while the older version I had did not.

ButI just need an application to join all the files WITHOUT altering anything so that it can play directly in PS3, as all the indvidual files do play in PS3.

MP4CAM2AVI change the contents to AVI (and reduce the files size to about half) and it is not playable in PS3.

This isn't the best editing software in the world, but it is almost free:

Try the freeware yamb,you can join and cut (to find the right cut position you can use the freeware riverpast) mp4 clips without re-encoding. If I remember well, I did it with my Sanyo HD1000 files.The joined file was playable on my HD1000 again, named as SAN0....MP4.

totally agree 3.00 is well worth the two Arcsoft programs simple H264 editing from QT-to- asf qt avi , any type can go in and a few transitions can be added. a lil slow but well worth a start

I came across that before but surely there must be a catch.

Arcsoft is selling the software for over $100 so it cannot be right.

I think it requires license and is tied to tthe video cam Aptek is selling. Therefore I made no attempt to buy it.

Thank you.I have just tried that.

1. It takes 70 minutes to join various clips of total length of about 24 minutes so it is slow. (my PC is not slow though not super fast)

2. It does not work. PS3 shows as corrupt file.

I suppose I was making it a bit more complicated than it is.

So the simplest/easiest/fastest way to do it is in the camera?

I'm not sure that it will play on a PS3 and I don't think there is a catch. I can't remember the exact install procedure, but I believe that there is a serial number on the disc, not the camera.

I also don't think that this is the full version of Arcsoft Total Media Extreme. At least I hope not. This version isn't up to par with the Uled or Magix editors. Have you tried either of these editors? They aren't free but they aren't too bad either.

The other thing that is nice about the Arcsoft software is the player. On my PC (3GHZ, 3GB RAM) it worked better than most of the freeware players and a lot better than Quicktime.
