I have about 160 gigs of DV on my HD that i converted from 8mm through the new pinacle DV Movie Box. I am going to put it all on DVD mpeg2 . Is it better to edit all my footage and then convert to mpeg2 or can I go ahead and convert to mpeg 2 to free up some hd space for more video. And any reasoning behind answer would be appreciated.
Just follow the AVI to DVDR tutorial posted here. It uses DVD2SVCD & CCE to do the encoding.
I would just edit the DV with AVISynth and then encode, although I guess that would depend on how complex the editing is.
