Application #3: Editing Movies from a Digital Camcorder

Do you make your own home movies? Then you'll want to turn your PC into a video editing studio—which is especially easy if you have a digital video (DV) camcorder, in either the Digital8 or MiniDV formats. Just install a desktop video editing program and beef up your hardware as necessary; the results can be truly amazing.

Understanding Digital Video Editing

PC-based video editing software performs many of the same functions as the professional editing consoles you might find at your local television station. You can use this software to cut entire scenes from your movie, rearrange scenes, add fancy transitions between scenes, add titles (and subtitles), and even add your own music soundtrack. Go with an all-digital video system—from DV camcorder to DVD output—and you can do all this without degrading the quality of the original footage.
