Need help with soft & hardware for project.
on Sep 25, 2002 at 2:18:21 am

I'm very new to the DV world. My mom's birthday's coming up and want to make a very special presentation during the event. I'd like to burn onto DVD and distribute to all guest, around 100. Just bought the GL2, Love it! I want to incorperate old film footage, photo's, new and old video. Also want to lay a music track and maybe some narration. OH yeah, titles. My current system has W2K Pro,1.3 Athlon, "21 Sony trinitron, 40 GB internal, 80 GB FW external, 512 MB ddr. As far as software I have Premiere 6.1 (update). I need a capture card and some more software to author DVD with menu's and titles. Any idea's on where I can get training on Premiere or good book's? Burners'? Also what capture card should I get? I'd rather not spend more on one with premiere cause I already have it. All or any thought's are welcome. Thank's, I'm going to need it.

A simple $40 dollar Pyro card will suffice for your capture device.

Premiere should be capable of handling most of your titles and compositing. If you want additional; compositing look into After Effects.

As far as DVD authoring, DVDit is pretty basic and easy to use.
