I can just imagine the yawning and scrathching this topic must cause but this is my first post and first flurry into video editing so please stick with me. I have clicked on various links and googled etc but I'm still in need of some friendly advice.
I'd like to capture my old video 8 tapes and edit them on my PC.
1. Sounds like people favour firewire, correct?
2. I like the sound of Premier Elements, good for a beginner yes?
3. I'd like to spend less that £200,
4. Ultimately I would put my edited (previously) video 8 onto DVD
5. Also, i'd upload stuff to the net
Can you advise/ point me at a similar discussion on the forum/ give me your thoughts.
