I'm new to the whole camcorder mini DV thing so forgive me if I ask a silly question.
When I transferred a 60 minute Mini DV tape to my PC it took up 12.7GB. Is that normal? What format should I transfer it into? I used DV, but had a choice to use mpeg, avi, wmv and a few others.
Also, how in the world do I start to learn how to edit this stuff. I tried a little editing using Premiere and messed up some footage. hahaha.
I'm not looking to be the next Spielberg. I just want to capture some footage of my kids, and be able to watch it without going into a seizure from all the shaking. hahaha
