I am very new to video editing, but I am learning, albeit very slowly.
I have two problems that I would greatly appreciate help in resolving. The two problems are very similar in nature, but I realise that the solutions may be very different for each. I also realise that Problem 2 does not really belong in this thread and my apologies for including it, but I was hoping the answer to problem 1 may also solve problem 2.
I would like to use my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1520 running Windows XP) to view full screen "live footage" from my JVC mini-dv camcorder. I can view "live" pictures on the laptop screen, but only in a window which will not expand from its tiny 80mm x 65mm size. I have the camcorder connected to the laptop via fire wire cable.
I use a Canon 20D digital stills camera. It would be very helpful if I could use my laptop to view full screen each shot immediately after it was taken. The Canon 20D connects to the laptop via USB.
I look forward to receiving your positive feedback and help.
