I'm new to digital video editing (it's infinitely easier to use a VCR...) and have just bought the ULead Movie Factory 3. I've had some success but I'm not at all impressed as rather than follow the manual initially, one has to use trial and error. The manual, like many others, seems to have been written by someone who assumes every buyer already knows all about it, details are scant and inaccurate.
I've managed to get scenes onto a CD (the intended recipient doesn't have a DVD player on their PC) but have run into a snag. A few minutes into the movie, the camcorder stops at a place I'm certain I marked in an earlier trial (I'm recording under 'marked duration') and the camcorder won't start again until I click on forward. When I do this, the timer under the screen resets itself to zero and capturing subsequent sections is impossible as the camcorder rewinds to the first part of the tape instead of the midway point I want as it sees the new zero as the beginning of the tape. It's being logical, but can I 'wipe' this mark?
Also, I've spoilt one CDRW but don't seem able to wipe it, the edit function in Ulead didn't work.. How can I use the same CD from the beginning, or do I bin it and use another?
