I have a few hours of AVI files that came off a Firestore-type device (they're full-rate DV format, effectively the same as you would get by capturing from a camcorder).
I need to convert them to DVD-RAM .vro format as this is what I use to archive video.
Any idea what is the best way to do this?
I've had two thoughts:
(a) Play them out of the firewire port on my PC into my Panasonic HDD DVD recorder, which can then copy them onto DVD-RAM. I'm not sure if this would work...
(b) Do it in software on the PC.
For both options I'll need some PC software, either for the playout or for the compression/encoding. I have Premier Elements 3, but I don't know if it can do either of the above - I've never actually installed it!
Sorry if I'm being stupid or this is an FAQ - I'm not a video expert by any means (as you can probably tell).
Any help much appreciated,
