My first post here on this great looking forum.
I'm just getting more serious about editing video after the realisation that I've had my video camera for several years not (about 4) and I have a mountain of footage of my 4 year old son that has gotten as far as the harddrive on my PC.
Add to that videos I get from my PVR and I've got some work to do.
Now it's about time I got to editing this stuff.
What I'm after is two fold. But both answers go hand in hand.
What software package should I use to cobble together bits of on video with bits of that video with nice fads, and title and you name it. Secondly, what format should I convert my videos to that will work best with this unknown software without loosing quality.
Here are the specs.
The video camera (a Sony HDR-HC1E) ouputs 1080i video in the .m2t format.
Also my PVR (a Homecast HT8000) saves recorded shows as .TP0 files.
Converting these to some other format is easy enough, but to what do I convert them (if I need to) and what software to edit them?
Cheers and thanks in advance.
