I just bought a Lite-on dvd recorder (standalone that plugs into tv) to backup home 8mm movies.
What is a good way to convert these dvd's so that I can edit them with Adobe Premiere or programs like premiere?
I had bought an ATI All-in-Wonder 9700 (I think that was the model), but for some reason when I capture the video through the analog inputs, I can't get DVD quality compression. I have a lot of lag and dropped frames.
I contacted the company and did everything they said to. I bought a fast harddrive with 200 gb space. I have a AMD 2100 processor, 512 mb ram, liteon cd-r and dvd-r, soundblaster audigy 2.
Of course ATI says it's the software and Pinnacle says its ATI. Why can't I capture and edit home movies??
Anyway, I'm getting off track. Is there a good DVD to (whatever the best compression is) convertor?? I don't want to rip illegal movies, just edit self made dvd-r's.
Thanks for reading this. This forum is great. Hopefully I'm in the right forum for this question.
