Re: Re: Re: camcorder - one more time

Since your end result need not be super-fine quality video, you can probably pick up a Hi-8 digital camera for under $300.

I think Windows Movie Maker (comes standard with XP I think) will allow you to import form a video cam.

I don't know how much total editing ability it has though. I haven't used it.

You could also get one of the dvd cams, but they're expensive right now, and you will still likely want some editing capability. I think you can edit in camera with them, but you'll likely want finer editing capability than that.

I just sold an older version of my video editing software to someone on this board. It was a good deal, but don't know how they are making out with it.

The software's made its way upstairs to the computer, where it keeps asking to be installed, but I've had a million excuses... Soon. I promise.

I looked at Windows Movie Maker last night. I will allow some editing. I even has a half-speed filter. However, sound is an octave lower. With the Vegas Video, you can monkey with the sound and keep it at the same octave.

VV is a slicker and more capable editing environment.
