Right now i have Sony Handycam Digital 8 and capture using a USB cord, I edit using Pixela Image Mixer and also have Windows Media Encoder. The Quality Is very poor, but i read i need to switch to a firewire, because usb sucks. Where can i get firewire and how much is it. Could someone please make a step by step guide on how to get the best quality with the stuff i have and/or anything else i need that I can download for free. Also if I got the best quality i could get, and put it on a vcd, would it even look close to as good as a dvd. Thanks for your help.
