I'm debating wether or not to open a specific project to keep my video files organized with my new cam.
Here's the Run Down: My new cam records video files in an MP4 format. Now I'm currently working on a project that has some clips from my JVC Everio that is now placed as a rear cam. My new cam did not come with any editing software, my current software is Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 11. My JVC cam did however come with editing software that I use to shorten my captures and convert to video files before I import them to a new project.
The problem is that I don't want my captures with the new cam to start piling up! I was thinking of having a specific project just for keeping my clips with the new cam so I don't have to keep shortening them in the current project I'm working on. My plan was when I do capture something worth saving, import it to the file to the specific project, shorten it to the right length, then render it out. Sounds a bit tedious, but it's just an idea. Any suggestions???

Hmm GoPros use the same format perhaps you can use the gopro studio I use to shorten my clips. Very easy to use and just might do the trick. Here's the LINK its free and you don't have to have a GoPro to download it. See if that works!

Be a Pro on the Road
PRR Tips to help you become a Driving Pro.
1) Don't wobble in a lane or hug a line, keep centered and steady. Being a predictable driver will save you from a collision.
2) Don't accelerate or decelerate quickly, smooth transitions help everyone including passengers.
3) Stay back from pedestrian crosswalks. It helps other motorists see the pedestrians, i.e. stop at that stop line.
4) Check around the pillars of your vehicle when turning. You might think it's clear only to be surprised by a pedestrian 'hidiing' behind your pillar.
5) When turning a corner, don't cut the on-coming lane. Imagine a quarter circle and make that your path. Being a pro means you don't need to correct your position after the turn to center yourself in the lane.
6) Always use your turn signal whenever changing out of your lane, and give that signal at least a second or two to alert others before actually turning. Too often people think that the signal isn't necessary. Those people should stop thinking what others need from them. Others, whether peds, bicyclists or other vehicles need to see what you are about to do to save themselves from a collision... so use that signal.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Pro Tips:
1) Walking or riding? Well look both ways even if you have a light. Do you really trust your life to a stranger and whatever condition or distraction they are dealing with? Don't assume they see the light or stop sign. After all, they have an entire vehicle to protect them, you don't.
2) Don't step off a curb without looking. Busses and electric vehicles (bicycles too) do not warn people of their approach with sound as there is very little sound generated by their movement or engines.
3) Practice good habits so that if you're ever distracted you'll more likely employ the good habit at the critical time you need it, to save your life.
4) It's called a crosswalk because you should always walk. If you're riding and want to use a crosswalk, dismount and walk. Walking gives drivers the chance to see you and stop if necessary. Darting across eliminates this important buffer.
5) Setting good examples will show children how to behave near a road, and in effect you will be saving their lives... so be a hero and save lives through your example!
