Random Access and Easy Editing
The HR10's ability to record direct to DVD offers many
advantages. You'll never tape over a once-in-a life time
piece of footage: and movies are always recorded to a
blank part of the DVD. And there's no need to rewind or
fast forward. The Canon HR10 is bundled with a powerful software suite
from Corel. This software allows you to easily perform a variety of func-
tions such as AVCHD video editing (trim, reorder, and combine scenes;
add music, titles, and transitions). And once you're finished, you can burn
a full size AVCHD DVD or Standard Definition DVD.
† The Canon HR10 can capture both Standard Definition and High Definition
footage. High Definition footage in the AVCHD format can be finalized in
camera or copied onto DVD media with included software. However, DVD
media containing AVCHD footage should only be used in AVCHD compatible
players otherwise the DVD player may fail to eject the media and may
erase its contents without warning.
