Since getting started in video blogging, I’ve found I needed something for importing video. While I’ve been meaning to do this for some time, I’ve finally picked up a package to help do this. Pinnacle’s Studio MovieBox Plus is now mine and operational on my Windows Vista laptop. An initial import from the vidcam was pretty strait forward, and the Studio software seems to be pretty good for editing video as well.
It also allows me to use my video camera in place of my web cam if I choose – much better video quality! Another nice aspect is to live-preview on a 3rd display while editing video, green screen (chroma key), and picture-in-picture.
The side-benefit of course, is that I can now also import and burn those home-movies to DVD that I’ve been meaning to do for awhile! Can’t wait to try some things here shortly!
