Hello there, I'm about to enter the realm of digital video this weekend when I buy a Canon Elura 90 and Premiere Elements. This forum is a wealth of information, but I'm confused by some terminology. I'm sure I've read the answer to my question somewhere here but probably didn't understand it. Maybe someone could be gentle and explain in newbie terms.
Here's what I plan on doing: record video (nothing fancy, family stuff you know) and simply burn raw video to DVD until I have a chance to edit. Can I do this? In other words, can I burn raw video to DVD, and then later capture the video from the DVD and bring it into Premiere Elements for editing? I think from what I'm reading in this forum that I can, but I have to convert the DVD video to some other format (DV format?) to do so, then burn back the edited version to another DVD? Will Premiere Elements allow me to do that? Disc space will be an issue, that's why I'd like to archive the raw video first on DVD and then come back to the DVD for editing later.
Sorry if I sound so ridicuously moronic, but I'm just learning. Set me straight someone.
