I introduced my self in the proper forums, but I'll give a quick recap of my situation here. I'm having almost 2000 ft. of 8mm film professionally converted to digital format, (Debenham Media Group based out of Pennsylvania). All the original 8mm canisters had titles on them describing the contents. I've numbered them so that the professionals transfer the films in a specific order. The idea is that when I get the digital video back, (approximately 135GB), I can splice them into smaller pieces with the descriptions added as title boards. Debenham recommends either Corel Video Studio Pro or Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD 11, neither of which I've ever used. I've read countless reviews on both pieces of software and as with most other software of any type, there are pros and cons, lovers and haters, etc.. I'm kind of leaning towards Corel because the general consesus I get is that the interface is easier to adapt to for a beginner like myself. In addition, it doesn't have too many bells and whistles, which for my purposes, I don't think I need if I'm just splicing and adding title boards. BTW, there's no audio to deal with in any of this film. However, I would like to be able to have the ability to play around a little bit with some other video once I complete this project, perhaps redo my daughter's wedding slide show I did in PhotoStory3 (complete with audio).
So...any thoughts or ideas?
Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.
