I have Sony Vegas 6.0 Movie Studio and DVD. As you can tell from my username I'm new to the editing game. I have all the footage that I want to dump on mini dv tapes. I will be using a firewire to connect the camera to my pc. What I want to know is if the quality of the footage will be affected if I use a different camera. I shot the footage in progressive on a dvx100 and I can campture the footage using this camera or using my consumer handycam Sony DCR-HC32/HC42. Will the quality of the footage be affected if I use a lower-grade camera? Any help and advice you can share with me would be much appreciated.
