    Trying to load digital video from mini dvd-ram discs to hard drive for
    editing and subsequent transfer to standard size dvd.
    So far, I've used CyberLink's PowerDirector 3 with all patches and getting
    so-so results, and I've tried a variety of demos, all in the <$100 range
    (which is where I need to stay) with poor or frustratin results (they don't
    work or they work but don't do enough).
    I see CyberLink also sells PowerProducer in a deluxe version -- does it do
    what PowerDirector does, but more? Or is there another package that you
    like?
    I need to load large (1 - 4 gB) *vro [mpeg2] files, edit them with simple
    titles, transition effects, and apply brightness and contrast touches to get
    a decent quality video for dvd without a lot of hassle and frustration.
    Thanks for you help,
    Tim

    Try the Womble Mpeg Video Wizard from www.womble.com
    It accepts *.VRO and other format files, lets you edit, add titles, etc.

    Frustration doubled!
    The evaluation password from Womble doesn't work, probably because,
    according to their accompanying email, it expired last spring!
    But thank you, Fred -- at least you answered my post.

  4. Download the trial version of Ulead MediaStudio Pro it has built-in support
    for DVD-VR files. It's $299 for the full version and $149 upgrade if you
    have some other version already. You're best bet overall would be to get a
    DVD-RAM drive for your system to copy the files off to the hard drive.
    Panasonic has multi-drives you may be interested in. Take a look at:
    http://www.panasonic.com/business/office/lm_dvd_multi.asp I assume you are
    using your camcorder as a drive on the system while bringing it in on USB?
