In Chapter 6, “Recording a DVD with Existing Files,” I discussed how you can create your own DVD video discs and cDVD discs using MyDVD; we used digital video files that you had already created and stored on your hard drive. Often, these video files are simply raw DV footage that you've copied directly to your computer from your DV camera or video that you've captured to your hard drive from an analog source.

But what if you want to create your own cinematic masterpieces? What if you want to edit that footage and add things such as special effects, still images, or even your own separate audio track? Now you're talking about a video editor: a program that's specifically designed to help you take the various “building blocks” of a movie and combine them to create an entirely new and original movie.

In this chapter, I'll show you how to use ArcSoft ShowBiz, the easy-to-use video editor that's bundled with many HP DVD-Writer drives. You'll discover how professionals use a storyboard and a timeline to “assemble” a movie, and you'll build your own original wedding video!
