I rip the video from the camera at DV quality whatever that is - each tape equates to around 13gig of data stored on the hdd. I have tried long play, but there is significant loss in quality
If you rip it in DV quality, edit in DV quality, and then export in DV quality, you can play it back in the DVD player, and it looks superb - compressing things down will always loose some quality along the line.
Tony... was Sony Vegas studio what was shown on the gadget show the other night?... iirc it came out pretty good. I'm sticking with Pinnacle for now though cos it does all I need.
Here ya go, if you want engine noise in the background, try this one - http://videos.ribseadrive.co.uk/crui...6-06_large.wmv
Music with engine noise there too
I have a single mic, which records to the left hand channel, and that stays in the dry back with the cam so doesn't get affected by the wind etc... *however* when there is no music you have to ultra careful with what's said on board, or you could end up bleeping out a fair bit
