At first glance, this would sound complicated and hard, but if a person would study the various components needed to make it all happen, he would be surprised at how easy it is to create sophisticated VCDs and DVDs.
All it needs is the proper video editing software like Cyberlink Power Director, a TV tuner that is plugged into the computer and of course the connection from the video source such as a video camera, VHS player or Betamax player. The latter video players are obsolete, but if they are still working, people can still save those old films and clips to be preserved and converted to playable VCDs or DVDs.
The interface is probably the hardest part. Transferring the video onto the computer need the cooperation of allocated disk space and proper reception from the video source before video editing can start. Once these are set, a person can start transferring the image into MPG or AVI format so that it can be stored in the hard disk drive before actual editing commences.
