How to Transfer Video to PC

Being new to RC and not very tech savvy I seek advice on how to transfer the video file from the phone to my PC for video editing. A simple export using USB appears to have transferred the file but I cannot find where it has gone. On the phone the file is called RC_20171116_144522.mp4 but a search on the PC reveals no such file. Your assistance would be most gratefully received.
Is there a user manual out there somewhere?

  • I should have said "how to transfer the OVERLAID video to my PC".
    The .mp4 file on the phone's SD card can be read on the PC but that contains the video only without the overlays.
  • You need to export overlaid video first: http://racechrono.com/article/2083

    The turorial shows how to share the file, but you can also find it from /Android/data/com.racechrono.pro/files/exports/
  • Thank you for that.
    The tutorial shows eleven sites to share with, including "share to drive" which sounds like the one I want, via a USB cable to my PC?
    I have exported the overlaid video but my "share session to" screen (RC 5.1.3) doesn't offer that choice, only Bluetooth, Gmail, Messaging, YouTube and Add to Maps. I have uploaded to YouTube OK but really need the overlaid video file to allow me to import it into Adobe PremeirPro for editing.
    How may that be done?
    Thanks, Biggles.

    The "share to" is an Android feature, which basically searches other apps that could do something with the file. If you want the DropBox option for example, you need to install that app. The "Save to Drive" option on my phone means uploading it to cloud through Google Drive app.

    You can skip the 4. step of the tutorial, and connect your phone to USB, and fetch the file from /Android/data/com.racechrono.pro/files/exports/ on either internal or external storage, depending where you exported it.
  • Got it !
    Many thanks for your guidance.
