Hi, I have a Pan NV-MX8, very pleased with the results so far. I use Pin Studio 7 for editing. My next project is to produce DVD's of my family etc. Has anyone experience of this? I tried to produce a DVD using Pin Express and my brothers DVD writer. I could only capture 18 mins of AVI and it took some 2hours to convert and write. Is this normal? The quality was super. How do you join a number of 18mins of converted film together and then write to one DVD? We used the firewire card and tried converting from AVI to MPEG4 but the quality was very poor. Is there a faster way of going from the DV Cam to PC and writing to DVD? Thanks, Ian.
