Can anyone advise on the ease of editing MPEG-2 vs. MPEG-4? For a novice, is one easier to edit than the other? If it helps, my system is Dell laptop running Vista on a 2.0 GH T7200 duo core chip with 2.0 GB RAM and 256 MB NVidia quadro video card.
FYI, Iím trying to decide between a Canon SD camcorder (MPEG-2) and a Sanyo (MPEG-4). Also, I've not purchased editing software yet, but I understand there are good options for both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.
