Shedworx has just released a new version of their software that allows you to do a conversion into the WMV format as well as the AVI format. The added advantage for the Canon HG-10 is that the conversion keeps the video in the correct 16:9 format.
For this version to work Windows Media version 11 needs to be installed. I had an initial problem with this as I had version 9. As before, Shedworx were extremely efficient and worked out why I had an issue.
The following screen shot shows how simple the Shedworx interface is:
In this screen AVCHD files are added for conversion.
This options screen allows you to select the output format. In this case I have selected WMV.
Pressing the green button starts the conversion from AVCHD to AVI or WMV (depending on which you selected). Simple!
