Really sorry to be the 1 millionth person to ask but i'm having a few teething problems with getting video from my PC to a DVD.
I brought a Firewire card and Ulead Video Studio 8 (SE Basic) came with it so i've got 5 mins of film (just to test) of my daughters 1st steps from a Sony Mini DV camera to my PC, the 5 mins of tape totals 1 GB but i'm aware that compressing it when burning to DVD will fix it (This is where it goes down hill).....
Ulead Video Studio won't let me "Create Disc" (I guess its due to being "SE Basic") so i tried Nero 7 Essentials (Nero Vison 4) which made the Video fine at about 300 MB but the Audio sounds like the Chipmunks so i tried Windows Movie Maker as suggested on another post on here and its currently in WMV format at 57MB although a little "tinny"
I quite like the Video Studio software but i just wondered if its worth buying a newer, full blown version or if there is somthing a little better to spend my money on. Also what would be the recomended file type for burning to DVD i.e. AVI (type 1 or 2), MPEG, WMV etc..
Many Thanks in Advance
