Just filmed the wedding of a good friend's daughter, with a Sony Video Camera that uses Digital Videocassette DVM60, watching the video directly from the camera into a TV/Monitor, the image is perfect, but when I transfer it to my computrer, using Pixela ImageMixer on MPEG 1 Highest Quality, the image is very poor, it looks as if it was a Charlie Chaplin old film. I am professional commercial photographer, and it has been many years that I don't do video, some friends have told me that I need a good vodeo caprture card, others tell me that I need good software, like Adobe Premier, and others tell me that I should buy a USB capturing device, like the ones made by Pinacle or other manufacturers. I need to edit the video taken in the wedding and transfer it to DVD, any suggestions???
Thanks for any advice.
