Can I transfer my home movies to DVD?
The great thing about DVD recorders is you can use them to transfer your home movies to DVD. This means you can send copies to family members and preserve video quality on a digital format.

With a set-top DVD recorder, you essentially hook up your camcorder, insert a disc into the recorder and hit record. While you can't edit the video, you can make a direct copy of your video onto DVD.

With a computer, you would use either a firewire connection or an analog capture card to get the video into your system. At that point, you can use video editing software to trim the clips the way you want. Most newer editng software allows you to burn a DVD of the final product, including creating navigation menus.
