Up Up And Away – A video response to A J Croce’s Which Way Steinway

T 34 B Mentor

A rare treat. A jump up in a WW2 fighter plane trainer.Joe & Nadia, thank you so much  – and a good word for The Glass Tulip, Nadia’s  brain storm.

Joe, help me,,,What is the model name again of your magnificent flying machine?

Joe & Nadia Responded:

Hy, the aircraft is a T34 “B” Mentor. It was stationed in Pensacola , FL with the Navy c. 1955-1957. It was refurbished in 1975 ,with approximately 5 owners since then. Hope this will help… Nadia

Small fist size HD camera editing difficulties:

I am trying to figure out the best way to edit the 100+ gigabytes of Sony mini-cam Hi Def. from our MiamiToNewYork…And Beyond To  The Arron Island ,Expedition . So far the SUPER GREAT difficulty in editing SONY’s digital files has been excessively difficult. But we shall surely overcome SONY’s unpublicized, unwarned, of difficulty in using SONY over-promoted, not ready for the consumer market, as are  any Hi Def cameras.

Far better warnings of the editing difficulties would be reasonable and are necessary.

We Shall Overcome.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly applauded and appreciated. Google has not been a great help. Is there a good 1 to $ 200-  program to edit the SONY unwieldy complication?

UPDATE:

1. SONY itself:
I spent hours typing back & forth w a Sony rep. no help.
Then spent hours with a Sony Techie. Seemed to be a great help. But afterwards when I moved a file around, all went to shreds. They all reverted to the 
the excessively difficult original format.

2. Suggestions from friends

I have received many suggestions. Paul's are at the top of the list.

SONY VEGAS & Adobe Premere Pro.

My 3 year old $1,000- Adobe box collection is of no help editing the HD Camera videos.
Indeed it is worse than no help w HD video (complicated by innumerable names & file extensions.
I am trying Sony's $100- Vegas 30 day trial program. It is somewhat of a help.

Where It’s At:
