I shot a 5 day wedding extravaganza in Manchester (my nephew). 5 days you ask? - yes... it was a traditional Indian wedding.
I shot using Canon XHA1 and have now got 7 hours of footage. I shot in the HD mode.
I have captured using HDV settings and this is an example of one file

Now the fun begins. I bought a Lynda tutorial and have now started the editing. Great fun must say. Picking up a lot of things along the way like only using the dissolve transition and not going over board with them.
One thing I've not looked at yet is how to burn on a DVD and leaving the quality as is. I'm hoping to get the complete project down to 90 mins.
Also, any other advise for a newbie doing this for the first time?
Thanks for reading
