I'm new to this site and have a couple of Pinnacle Studio / general editing questions.
I am using a Dell Dimension 4500 with Studio SE V7 (firewire) and am attempting to edit some old 8mm cine film that I have recorded and captured from my JVC DV cam. Is it possible to overwrite the audio track that is captured with the video, as this has not been used for anything useful and I would like to put some music on it (I would like to keep the 2 Studio sound tracks available for sound fx if possible). Also, I have just purchased a DVD writer to burn my finished project to, but I need Pinnacle Studio V8 to do this (I believe), would anyone know if there is a V8 upgrade pack that can be purchased or do you need to buy the standard V8 software ?.
With regard to adding music to my project, I would be grateful for any suggestions on the best way to get vinyl and cassette onto my PC. I am currently recording directly from my stacking system amp into the microphone jack and although it does record, the quality is not the best (the volume meter is constantly in the red and there seems to be some distortion). Is there an economical off the shelf pack that I can buy to achieve this ?.
