Hi, please excuse my ramblings but I am new to this Digital Video stuff. I have been doing the digital photography for a few years and creating VCDs to play on my DVD from the photos and videos from the digi cam.
but I am about to be a Dad and my wife wants to get into Digital videoing aswell as the pictures. So........
I have purchased a second hand video (£50 from ebay - it has firewire but that will be a future upgrade) and a DVD drive (£50) for my PC (just waiting for both to arrive). I have a TV card in the PC that has a s-video in, the camera I bought has the s-video out. The computer has a 4gb and a 6gb hard disk. The 6 GB is used for my photography stuff so is completely empty.
My question is can I transfer directly from the tape through the PC and store the video in full on a DVD, then using the DVD library that I will end up with I can edit to get the final video clips I want to keep.
do I need to invest in a larger harddisk drive (every £ counts as the baby is due in 2.5 months) or will the tape to DVD work.
I will obviously have plenty time on my hands when baby arrives (3am, 4am, 5am etc.......)
Thanks in advance.
