Has anyone tried to seriously learn this editing program? Is it worth it? Seems to be tough going!

I use a pinnacle product, Studio 9 and find it very easy to use, saves direct from camera in mpg2 or avi. A firewire card is beneficial to get dvd as mpg. Editing is straight forward and its possible to edit the whole hour and a half without having to split the video up like some other systems.
Dont use it for burning to a DVD, just save as mpg and use TMPG for burning.

Thanks. I have been through the whole bit with Studio 8 and find it ok. However I have Pinnacle Edition 5.5 and it apparently does all sorts of useful things but the learning curve is too great for me I think. I am hoping someone here will have tried it.

Sorry wrong spelling,

Its a burner programme that is capable of converting an mpg file into something that is suitable for DVD recording. It makes an mpg file into those VIDEO_TS files.

see at link text

You can download a trial version. The programme is also capable of video editing though its fairly basic in this area. (no bells and whistles)

If your tapes are 8 millemetre then a Sony TRV460E will convert analogue tapes to Digital via firewire and PC. Hope this helps.
