Yes, your video is private as no backup files are retained on the system. The copy you record to your own USB drive is the only copy of the video.
Use a regular USB drive but make sure it is large enough to hold your video file.
Drive sizes vary, but generally, you can assume that a 1GB drive will accommodate 30 minutes of recording time.
Use the toggle switch to turn on/off the green screen. Intensity should remain at Dimmer 13.0V (2%)
Use the small silver switch to turn on/off the blue or green lamp around the camera lens. The larger grey buttons set the intensity of the light, which can have an adverse effect on masking the blue or green screen when editing the footage in an editing software. Make sure the settings read approcimately 12.0V on the readout.
If you receive this error, it is best to call for assistance from the Ask Here Desk at (406) 657-1662.
We have heard this complaint frequently from users of Adobe Premiere, where it is caused by Premiere's inability to handle the variable frame rate recordings made by the Apple Mac Mini.
If you wish to edit your files in Adobe Premiere, you'll need to open and re-save your mp4 files in in the Handbrake application available freely online. Follow these instructions for re-saving your files in Handbrake and your files should now be properly synced when you open them in Premiere.
