I am a newcomer to all this and do not yet understand the technical words! I have just bought a Sony minidv camcorder and used movie maker on my pc to edit. I added music, titles etc and decided to save it as i want to burn it to dvd. I used the save to pc option i think it was called but this took about 5 hours!!! I left it overnight and it seems to have saved although i have not checked it all yet. Is this normal amount of time and can i reduce this anyway? To give an example of normal speed when i copy and burn a feature leength film using DVD shrink and nero the whole process takes about 90 minutes. I havent got the fastest pc but its ok. Also is there a way i can send a small clip ) about 3 minutes long) via the internet as i want to send some old footage to my family?
