I have a Canon MD 205 video camera. I also have 6 hours of tape from Viet Nam. I have PowerDirector 11 Ultra and no idea of what to do with the files. Well, not true. I have Capture and I can see the video. But I don't know what format the film should be sent to my computer in. I have DV I can't find others in the software.The DV AVI file seems huge to me. In total I have 6 hours of short play tapes and I want to have something like a one hour film.
If that's clear, can someone please advise on file type, if there's a better one, or how much hard drive space I'll need with this file.
Sorry to bother you all with such trivial matters but I'm now a pensioner who's not good with computers/software nor video editing but I really want to learn. Off to Sri Lanka in 3 weeks so more opportunities for me but no point if I can't edit the film.
Thanks in advance,
