Hi y'all. I want to put an inexpensive system together for recording and editing videos and burning a CD with the video on it. Price is very important though. I know to start with I can't afford anything too good. But what would y'all suggest for me? I need to get the computer and hardware and software, so any information on what's cheap but good would be appreciated. Thanx. :smile:

Thanx for the help. Do you have any suggestions on what I'd need? I probably won't understand them myself, but I can print them off for my room mate to look at. She's smarter than me about these things but she's too busy at the moment.

I could make a bunch of suggestions. But how much do you want to spend?

Well, right now we've only gotten together a little over a grand. But we hope to get more soon.

One more question do you have a video camera yet? If so what type do you have.

Blah, Blah Blahh, Blahh, blahh blah blahh, blah blah.

No. We don't have no camera yet. :redface: We're just starting out. It probably sounds impossible. No camera. And no computer. And no budget. Are we out of luck?

Uhh, well not quite, but it makes it hard. I think you could get away with around 1500 but anything less is just not worth the effort. Also what do you want to do with the video your encoding?

Blah, Blah Blahh, Blahh, blahh blah blahh, blah blah.
