  • Project: Recording a DVD from a DV Camcorder

In the previous chapter, you learned how to record a DVD (or cDVD) disc using MyDVD and digital video files from your hard drive—this is likely to be the route that most of us will take with our digital video footage.

However, MyDVD also offers a direct-to-DVD mode, where the video input from sources such as a digital camcorder or VHS VCR can be burned directly to a DVD. No editing required!

In this chapter, I'll discuss the process of direct-to-DVD recording using MyDVD, and we'll burn a DVD disc using this technique (with the help of the MyDVD Wizard). By the way, you can also record a CD-R or CD-RW directly from your DV source, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're going to be recording less than 30 minutes of uncompressed footage.
