    Default Making DVDs from video files and such.

    I recently bought a laptop with a DVD burner. I am new to the whole video editing and making think. What are some good programs for editing movies from video files? What I want to do is put some VHS tapes I have on DVD. I would like to make chapters and menus and so on myself. Any help would be great and thanks.

This just shows me the Assholes that are really are on here. So I guess I will be kicked off now. Oh well. You guys only help who you want to so fuck you.

    Really???

    Maybe.....just maybe no one knows much about it? Or knows any software to recommend.

    Just a thought.

    Personally I know nothing about the process, am I still an asshole??

    If I had any idea then I would have helped you in a New York minute wabo. I've never done what you're asking for assistance.
    I think if you needed help fixing your guitar or something then you'd have had lots of volunteers with all the EVH freaks around this place.

    Try asking around at a video editing forum somewhere. Google will help you find that.

    Here. I found one for you. http://www.videoforums.co.uk/

    I'm sure they can help you there.

    Good luck.

    I'm fairly computer savy, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be much help. ConvertXtoDVD is a solid program I've used to convert files into burning DVDs pretty easily:

    But as far as converting VHS to digital, Walgreens is what I would do.

    Sorry to hear that Tahoe, maybe you should call Obama and tell him to help ya. =p

    I use an app called Sony Vegas and the DVD Maker it has, but it isn't a free app. Are you looking for free software?

    I think the editing program Sony Vegas was made by Jesus because nothing else in the world compares to it's greatness. It's a bit pricey, as the basic version runs at about $100, but it's worth the money. I suggest downloading the free trial first to be sure you'll want to shell out the money for it. Otherwise, Windows Movie Maker is good for basic video doings. The texts and transitions can be somewhat cheesy but it's just fine for projects that won't be going any further than your DVD collection or youtube.

    I recently bought Pinnacle Studio V14 at Best Buy fo $50. East to use for video dummies like me. Lots of options too. You'll need a converter box like the Moviebox below for importing VHS, etc.

    The "ultimate" version comes with the Movie box.

    Good luck...

    I'm no help on computer software-but.....I have a VHS to DVD machine (player and recorder) that does a decent job, even for me, the digitally challenged. I have converted a tape for a friend and made multiple copies. Came out fine. They may not have them at Best Buy much now, what with the various software programs out now. But this way I don't have to hook up a bunch of stuff.

    Just my $0.02. Good luck! I have a pile more to do.........

    I suggest dropping $60 on Nero 9. You get a ton of extras including Vision, which lets you customize DVD menus and convert various video files to be burnt. It might cost a little less after some coupon codes but well worth it.
