So you got yourself a little mini DV recorder. You shot all your video. You've even imported it into your editing system into your computer. Now what? How do you get it off your computer so you can give it out to family and friends? Well, that's easy. You want to convert your digital video to a DVD. There are several ways to do this; but what I recommend is you get yourself a DVD authoring software. There's several types of consumer software out there; or if you want to be a professional, the one that I recommend, this is one of my favorites, is Sony DVD Architect. It will allow you the opportunity to take your footage, import it to the editing system, burn it out to DVD; which will include your titles; you can even put music, all sorts of things. So you can edit your whole movies and drop them right into DVD. Let me show you how. So you have DVD Architect opened; you're going to go to file, new file. In this case we're just going to do a single movie. We'll double click on it and then at this point we'll open up one of our files. And there you go, there's some footage that we have. And it's real simple, you can choose your induction; we like to have it start right away and then go right to remote buttons at the end, we're going to have it loop and make DVD. As simple as that; then you'll have your option to burn your DVD and you're burning away. So when you're ready to take your videos, off of that camera, put them on your computer and start to edit them and put them onto DVD. There are several programs out there that will allow you to do that. I hope this helps.
