Hey all. My name is rob and im really new to video editing. Went away last new year and filmed a bit of footage with me n my mates and now want to make a dvd of it.
First thing first, equipment i am using is a panasonic NV-DS11 DV Camera and editing will be take place on my laptop. Now i've been told by many that firewire is the go for dv editing, no probs there. Seeing as though my laptop doesn't have firewire i went down to the computer store today and i was showed a firecard for the laptop and a 6-to-4 pin cable, no probs there.
Before buying i wanted to quickly make sure it would be alright for my camera so i went home quickly to check, problems start. Looking at my camera i can't see any slots that looks even remotely similar to firewire, instead its got an s-video port (i think) with edit written next to it.
What do i do and is it still possible to connect through firewire. I've been wanting to edit the videos for ages so any help will be much appreciated.
