Hi, These might be dumb questions. My mate is starting up a local charity / voluntary organization. He has done some video footage using a Panasonic NVGS200B digicamcorder. He has been told by his regional BBC office that he can use their production studio and (he is paying for a) professional bloke to do some editting for him - to create a professional presentation. He has about four MiniDVs across which his charity work footage is spread out amongst some personal footage. He only has a naff Windows ME based PC with Movie Maker 1 and some old version of Ulead VideoStudio 5 software. He also has a new Maxtor 250gb external HD. He lives somewhere in the sticks so I cant go and help him try and figure it all out.... What he ideally wants to do is dowload all his 4 tapes onto the external HD in the highest quality - raw DV - edit out the personal bits of footage and then give the remaining charity footage to the BBC person to work his magic. Can he acheive what he wants to do using Movie Maker 1 and the software that comes with his Panasonic NVGS200B? Is there any shareware or freeware he can use instead. The NVGS200B is his personal device and he has no or little money to get this all done until the presentation is seen by some money people who may then give him a grant to fund his work.
