Long Story Short:
I want to burn home movies (off of my Sony Camcorder) to DVD.
Here's what I've done so far:
Uploaded from Camcorder via USB (2.0 on computer..don't know if camcorder supports 2.0 or not..TRV460 camcorder) to Windows Movie Maker (this created a wmv file). I then used TMPGEne to convert this file to a mpeg file.
Now, I want to burn this mpeg file to a DVD-R (using my NEC2500 burner).
Q: Which software to use? NOTE: cheap or free would be great, but I'm willing to spend some cash on software if I can get it soon, so nothing I have to order off of the net and wait for--making these movies for Christmas (something I can buy at Walmart, or MediaPlay, or Bestbuy or something would be fine).
FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS:
a) is there capture software I could use instead of WMM so I wouldn't have to use TMPGEne to convert to mpeg? TMPGEne does it just fine, it just takes a long time.
b) lots of people have mentioned the "tutorial" section on the board here. I can't find it though. A link would be appreciated.
Thanks. Again, main question: GOOD, CHEAP, MMV, MPEG, AVI burning software for burning to DVD-Rs.
LET ME KNOW.
NOTE: also posted in the "newbie" section..because, well, I'm a newbie.
