Hi. I am looking at my DV editing options at the moment. I now know I cannot DV IN enable my Sony digital 8 TRV140E at the present time, so I am looking at alternative ways of saving the PC edited work. I know its a Bank Holiday but can someone get their head round these questions and advise me so I dont spend too much money on things I dont need or that wont work. As many opinions as possible would be ideal, as I dont have any real experience of PC editing yet, really want to get the hardware issues clear in my head. 1) Is it possible to edit DV on a PC and export it from the PC as an analogue VIDEO/AUDIO out signal direct to a VHS machine with analogue line inputs, or is the PC limited to exporting only a digital signal? Would I need extra cards or software to do this? This would be my preferred way of making VHS copies of the PC edited material. 2) If I get a PC with a CD Writer, can I then store my full digital quality movie on a CD or is a standard CD too small? Then since I cant save back to the camcorder, I can delete the file on the hard drive having stored it on CD. but in full digital 8 quality of course, not compressed. 3) If I get a PC with a DVD writer, how easy is it to create a standard DVD with a front end menu, choice of versions or sound tracks, etc, that will play on any standard TV set top DVD player. Will this be extra and expensive software, or will DVD writers come with all this software bundled? 4) I know DVD players can play audio CD disks, could they play back digital video stored on a normal CD if it was in the correct format? What file format is a standard DVD release movie stored as? 5) Which DV editing software will support the new TRV140E camcorder, as I know some have compatibility lists. I dont have any web addresses for any software so I dont know how to check this. Its pretty new which is why I cant DV-IN enable it. Dont want to buy expensive software and find it rejects my machine. Will any Firewire card be OK or are they fussy about what camcorder is plugged in? Again, dont want to make expensive mistakes and find one item is wrong somewhere in the set-up. Yes a lot of issues here. I want to be able to DV edit my work, and since I cant copy back to the camera I need a way of permenant storage of the edited movie as something I can make copies of if required, and also make analogue standard VHS versions from the digital master. Many thanks if you can show me the way to go.
