Like lots of new members I want to get into video editing. I have some idea of what I want but am having difficulty making that final decision. I want to be able to transfer my old vhs tapes (to DVD) and also my lps and cassettes(I know this is not video!) and have put DVSTORM2 and Liquid Edition 5.5 on my short list. I like the real-time features of the DVSTORM in that, for the majority, you don't have to wait for rendering and creating the final result is fast. On the other hand I like Edition as it's software suite is all in one rather than the DVSTORM(although it looks like Premiere is good too) and that it uses AGP graphics and Background rendering. Can I also use these same capture cards for capturing audio seperately eg LPs. Any help in making the final decision would be great.
