a good video editing software package
We've had very good luck with the
- firewire iMac (DVD)
- firewire video camera
- iMovie (to capture AND edit the video)
We've also use a
- usb iMac
- usb - video capture dongle
(used XLR8's InterView)
(good for VCR stuff)
- includes VideoShop
+ large bunch of video cables ad connectors !
And QuickTime Player (2.51! essentially QT Pro) for
final compression, etc.
Both are very easy to use.
