Hi Graeme,
I usually use DeVeDe in Windross and it is ok.
I will need to go back and have a look at the manual. It is quite annoying that I take a video on my camera and it saves it as an .MP4 file, I can view it in the camera, I can connect to the television with the HDMI and view it there but I can't take from the camera and put it on a DVD that I can view.
Although Openshot is ok, I may need to find another video editor with extra titles, transitions editing capabilities.
I will stick with Openshot for the moment as I think it will do what I need, but I will look for alternative video editors for the big picture (my grand-daughters wedding)
I am still trying to understand the fact that :-
1 I have to download clips from video camera to computer
2 I need a video editing programme to join the clips, edit the clips, add titles etc. , then save in a format that I can use in step 3
3 I need an authoring programme to transcode the file I made in step 3
4 I need a burner to put the file on a DVD disc that I can watch on a Video Player.
I would gladly buy a programme that would carry out all these operations, if there was one available.
I will come back to this in the morning.
Thanks again for your help.
