Just bought the Pinnacle Studio movieBoard12…Should I be having any problems using an old WinXP 32BIT Pro SP2 OS? Will upgrading to the new Windows7OS, and the addition of more memory help? (currently XP only allows 3.3GB RAM.

Yes I am a newbie,not a professional Author/editor. Don’t want to spend hundreds,just a decent program to capture I guess to AVI, then edit,add some transitions,but not cheap looking,then encode to I guess .mpeg as the final output. So far, only capturing Audio is coming into the studio, no video. So I also don’t know if it’s going to be properly synced, as I heard problems with pinnacle can do. I have posted last night ( rivrbyte ) in more detail in this edit forum. I like to dabble and be a little creative,but Canopus and Adobe’s premier is overly expensive as is difficult for newbies to handle I have heard.
A friend of mine uses
Roxio VHS to DVD USB ,transfer VHS tapes to computer, creates DVD’s/YouTube stuff with Pinnacle 12 and burns to DVD’s using Roxio, and they look decent. I already have nero9. have heard Roxio and NERO is only good for burning CD’s, not for capture or edit. As you can see…this newbie is mesmerized by all the choices.
Did not mean to hijack this page, Just need to know if i should return this Pinnacle Studio Movieboard12, and take all my VHS camcorder tapes to Costco and have them burn to DVD. Thanks!
