I have looked at all kinds and versions of editing software and have read the threads here on the different brands. I am a little overwhelmed at all of this as I’m TOTALLY new to this!
What I am looking for: I have a TRV280 sony camcorder and use digital8 tapes. I need something to transfer whats on the tape to PC, be able to cut out parts a I don’t want and be able to turn it into a DVD for myself and family. Would also like to be able to slow down the video for fast action video or just to make sure the rest of the family see’s something stupid another member has done! LOL. I just got the camcorder a week ago and since have been searching for the software that would fit my needs. I also don’t have a lot to spend (like the $500 adobe or Sony software!).
After some reading, most of you seem to like premier? I was also looking at Sony Vegas movie studio + DVD 6. Would like something for a “beginner” if possible… easy to use.
My PC is XP pro, 1gig ram, mediocre video card and a higher end P4 CPU (sorry at work and can’t remember exactly what it is… thinking 2.4) on board sound card on an Asus P5N32 mobo.
