    I figured I'd ask here since many of you make those vids.
    Has anyone used that Dazzle thing that allows you to convert your normal camcorder into digital? Is it easy to use or one of those things that drive you nuts?

    I'm looking for a cheap way to do some digital video editing without having to buy a whole new camcorder.

    Thanks

    Oh yea, I would use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit,so does Dazzle allow me to use other programs, or do I have to use that Pinnacle program they give me?

    I just want to be able to convert my camcorder film into mpeg, avid or some digital form and edit it with another program.

    Also, how is the transfer quality with Dazzle?(from camcorder to computer)

    Yea sorry for posting so many times,
    But from the Dazzle website, it says:

    4GB for every 20 min of video captured. ?

    Isnt 4 GB a little much or is this just some messed up conversion?

    Sorry I don't know anything about Dazzle, but I just checked the documentation I got with my Pinnacle Studio 9 and it says that it takes, 3.6mb for every second of capture. Which is (if I'm doing my math correctly..) 3.6 gig for every 16.6 min. of video.
    About the same as 4 per 20.

    I would think that you would be able to use Premier with your Dazzle or any AD converter, as long as it converted to a format supported by both.

    it means 4gb/20mins when its uncompressed. when you compress it into something like divx etc it gets way smaller.

    Can I compress files in like Premier or Pinnicle, or do I need another program?
