    Hello. I am quite new to video editing and camcorders. I have recently
    purchased a Sony DCR HC35 miniDV camcorder and have toyed around with
    the pre-installed roxio MYDVD LE software as well as Nero Ultra edition

    but would like to invest in a more dedicated package and hope to embark

    on a new hobby. I am interested in Burning and DVD Creation, as well as

    possibly sharing video clips with family via e-mail and over the
    internet.

    I have been reveiwing some software online and Abode Premier Elements 3

    sounds pretty good. I have also looked at Pinnacle Studio 10 Plus and
    Ulead Video Studio 10 Plus. Any guidance and advice around these
    programs would be gratefuly received.


    Many Thanks - Melianbriggs.

  2. Hi And welcome to the wonderful world of Digital Video!
    Your journey starts here!
    I would go for Adobe Premier Elements, Jessops have had an offer for
    Elements and Photoshop together for about £60 or so(£99 with a rebate). -
    Its easy to learn for a newbie and can produce good results. Pinnacle
    software has had some issuses of late -some people swear by it others at it!
    Ulead can be ecentric but does the job ! When you come to render the edited
    Video to DVD format ( make up a dvd compatible disc image prior to burning)-
    make sure you have a fast PC I tried this recently on a 1Ghz Pentium III and
    it took over 12hours to render a video to DVD format (45mins long!.)

  3. I'd go for Premiere Elements. Bundled with Photoshop Elements at PC World.

    Have you tried Windows Movie Maker 2. Free from Microsoft. It's a good
    intro and brilliant for creating rolling credits

    Hello Margaret, How do I know if I have Version 2 of windows movie
    maker? I open the program, select help then select about this program
    and it just says windows movie maker (not 2). I do have automatic
    updates switched on so I think the website says I should have that
    version. Do you know of any obviuos differences between the two
    versions so I could be able to tell?
    Many Thanks.

    Do you have Windows service pack 2 installed, if so you will probably
    have MM2, if you don't have SP2 installed you should have! Sounds to
    me that you are not up to date with your *vital* security updates....

    Also, please can you place you replies *below* the message that you
    are replying to, this is the norm in most if not all uk* newsgroups
    and makes following the discussion far easier for all - after all, you
    don't read the 'Who done it' part of a book before the plot!

    Hi Margaret
    Hope you don't mind me hijacking this thread. We had our first video
    camera for the arrival of our first grandchild in November 2005 and
    I am still trying to sort out software that will allow me to
    download and edit the footage and then burn to DVD to play on any
    DVD player. Hoping to send to relatives in Australia. I was very
    disappointed that there appeared to be no software with the camera
    as it was not cheap!! You mention Windows Movie Maker and that was
    the first thing I downloaded with but it wouldn't play on our DVD
    player only on the PC which is why I thought I obviously needed
    dedicated software to do this. I believe you have to have
    'authoring' software is this correct, I really would like to compile
    a DVD of the moments we have captured so far and feel we would take
    far more video if I could do this.

    Many people have issues with their home burnt DVD, even when using
    expensive authoring programs, they find that the DVD's do play on
    cheap players but NOT their expencive 'branded' models!

    Thank you for your reply. I am just trying to find some software to
    buy which would let me capture from the video camera, then edit it
    and burn on to a DVD. I want something that is simple to understand
    and once I know what I am doing (hopefully) I can then move on to
    software that is all 'singing and dancing'. Does anyone have any
    recommendations please.

    Your problem is similar to that of another poster in the thread
    "software suggestions?", started today in this group, I suspect that
    your short term solution may be the same. BTW, what is your camcorder
    model?

    The three leading packages for the home and family users are Pinnacles
    studio 10 plus, I have used 7,8 & 9 without problems but a lot of users have
    stability problems with it.
    Ulead Movie studio 10,just as easy to find your way around but not as good
    as pinnacle.
    Sony Vegas movie studio, This is a little more advanced in its capabilities
    but does not look as pretty and would need a little time putting into it to
    get a grip of the interface.

    Windows movie maker is more tied in to playing WMV on the computer rather
    then creating DVD's.It only makes wmv and DV/avi, all the rest have a
    multitude of formats. The Mpeg 2 codec needed to make a DVD does not come
    free so is not in movie maker but if saved as DV/avi something like Nero or
    sonic that does have the mpeg 2 codec can then burn to DVD, as fully
    compatible

  16. Not sure what you mean by "not as pretty", but Vegas is the only
    application out of that three that I'd take seriously.
