Any comments about the Sony Vegas Movie Studio + dvd video editing software VEGASMSDVD6??
I mentioned that it had to be connected via FireWire connector/IEEE 1394 device and my notebooks are USB 2??
I wondered if this is a better editing program.
Right now as an example I use a Hauppauge unit that converts my family videos created from my Sony Hi 8 camera and am quite surprised at the quality. (And the Hauppauge Win TV PVR USB 2 in prep for my creation of a Dvd is in Mpeg)
The issue for me now is to get a user friendly version of an editing program I guess.
I had Nero on my notebook and got rid of it as it had some conflict issues with some of my work based programs.
So I gather I can do a straight burn of the Mini Dvd of the example of mini dvd 1 to a 4.75 and then follow it up with another 30 minute Mini Dvd to make a full hour on that large DVD.
The issue that I will have is that in order to do a Edit it will have to go into Mpeg?
Sorry for my Noob Mini DVd queries.
We are wondering if we should take this camera back and wait a few years thus all the questions and making certain we are not misunderstanding.
I look forward to comments, thankyou.
i should say when we bought the Sony 405 it had the following differences from the 505 and cost only $100 less and wondered if we should get the 505 once we understand all of your experienced comments.
The Sony 405 has:
