    video to CDROM


    maybe a basic question but have little knowledge of this area

    How easy is it to put video onto CDROM. How much specialised kit would one need?

    thanks

    I dont suppose you have tried simply burning cd with a video on it at least that is how I do it.
    And you know I mean that.

    that would be quite easy but there must be a few steps involved like getting it off the tape and into the pc?

    ohhhh... I though you already had the video on hdd..... well in that way I would imagine it having something to do with tv-in on your video. Unfortunately I dont have that luctury (have only tv-out), and that is about all I can say right now
    And you know I mean that.

    not very difficult


    you want to put something to cd from tape you say? it's not difficult, just has some basic requirements...

    1) you need some stuff to capture the video to your hd such as a:

    video capture card (the prefererable way -can handle video compression while not taxing resources)
    ~or~
    a video import device hooked up your usb (slower) or firewire (faster) ports.
    ~or~
    if you are using a mac, the advantage is some have built in audio/video ports, the downside is you're using a mac

    2) most of the video capture card or input devices come with video editing software like adobe premiere, final cut pro, mgi videowave etc...., but if not they are available in every price range from professional to hobby.

    3) a program to place it on the cd such as easy CD creator, nero or any other program able to create a video cd, and the movie footage must be in *.mpg format.

    then you can play the video cd on your computer, video cd player, or even dvd player.

    have fun!
