Due to purchase of a new camcorder I am having to replace my video editing software.
I used to use Ulead Video Studio 9 to capture video from my old camcorder, small vhs tapes played
on a vcr captured via a conextant capture card in my pc.
My new camcorder, Samsung F70 SD, produces video in mp4 format. VS9 will not handle or recognise
this format, which is the reason for needing new software.
I have read good reviews of Sony Vegas 11 and there is a special offer for this at the local PC World
(Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum production Suite 11), but am
having problems confirming that it will do what I want. I have downloaded the trial version, but when I try to
install it it says it needs Vista or Windows 7 and will not install. I have XP SP3.
The listing for the full version says that it will run on XP SP3. Is anyone using it on this platform?
The main thing I will want to use it for is to import mp4 files, concatenate them, clip out bits of the
files, eg. dark parts where the lights went down, bits where I dropped the camera, etc. and to output the
finished project onto a dvd for playing on a dvd player.
Occasionally I will also want to capture from the vcr through the conextant card.
Will Vegas allow me to do this ?
Any advice gratefully received.
