I am familiar with capturing and editing video from my sony digital handycam, using Studio 8 (well, it was free!), and burning my own famil video dvds.
However, I still have some hi8mm tapes from my old camcorder. I cleverly sold this camera before capturing the footage (!!), so I found a company who can put the footage onto dvd for me. They said that the files i'll get are VOBs, which I understand are kind of standard dvd files? Anywho, Studio doesn't seem to support this file type. The company recommended Cyberlink PowerDirector, but I've read some mixed reviews on this product, including how slow it is to render.
So my questions are:
- firstly will VOB files be a nice high quality format for me to edit and preserve as much quality as poss?
- Do you know of any other software that will adequately edit these files or is PowerDirector my only choice?
Any help would be much appreciated!
