My original PC with Adobe Premiere 500 died 2 years ago. Some components in the replacement PC were not compatible and as I only ever used it for basic editing I decided to get another cheaper programme. I've only just got round to doing it and have a trial version of Ulead Videostudio 9. I used S-VHS tapes for the edited version but will now go to DVD. My wife also has a camcorder but is most definitley not PC minded. She transfers her footage to a VHS recorder, using the pause button to skip any bad bits. A friend has a Daewoo DVD/VHS combi recorder that copies VHS to DVD and vice-versa plus copying from a camcorder. It includes basic editing and titling Hopefully my wife could cope with that - how technical a job is it? Could I put my work on DVD by transferring the edited version back to the camcorder and then using the Daewoo to create the DVD, so saving the need for a separate DVD authoring programme? I gather from reading other posts that a separate programme is preferable to the ones that are included in the editing programme. A final question - feedback on Ulead is 50% "brilliant, easy and stable" and 50% "always crashing, totalyy unstable". At the price I'm willing to give it a try but wonder if the difference is between the download version against the CD one.
