You have gone out and you have bought yourself your mini DV camera, you have put all your home movies together on your camcorder and now you are ready to bring them in to put them out to DVD. How do you go about doing that? Well to take your digital video files and to turn them into DVD you are going to need a couple of things. You are going to need a fire wire cord or a cord that will take your video files form your camcorder into your PC and you're going to need some type of editing software or authoring software in which you can take your video files and convert them or burn them right out to DVD. So what do you use to do that? Well I like to use Sony Vegas for video editing where I can take all of my video files, drop them on a time line, edit them and then output them in another format MPEG2 and then bring them into another program called Sony DVD Architect and that is where I actually output my files to DVD. Another way you can do it is you can take Nero if you don't want to necessarily edit all your files you can take and drop all of your video files directly into the bin for Nero and output it to DVD on an AVI file if your DVD player actually renders or plays AVI files. So there are a couple different ways you can go about it but make sure you have the ability to get your video into the computer and check out the different types of software to be able to put it out to DVD.
