    I have recently started playing around with video editing from my digital camcorder on my PC using a Firewire card and Pinnacle Studio 8.

    I will probably be buying the Pioneer A105 DVD writer for my PC as soon as it comes out. Will I be able to use this to burn footage from my HDD onto a DVD-R? If so, what software will I need in order to produce DVD-R's that will play back in home cinema DVD players.

    I have considered the Panasonic DMR-HS2 for carrying out the above operation, but at the moment the cost is just stupid. Also, a PC is surely a more powerful editting tool than this type of stand-alone unit - isn't it??

    Thanks,

    Dave

    When you have a DVD burner Pinnacle Studio 8 will do everything you need. It will capture, edit, encode. author and finally burn the DVD.

    By the way get a DVD+R/RW drive. Unusally PC World have a good deal at the moment - a Ricoh +R/+RW drive for £200.

    the pioneer dvd-r/rw are fine drives, id research the pros and cons of each format before buying.
