We have a US$5,000 budget to buy equipment and software for an editing project. Students and volunteers will provide the labor. Basically, we have the inputs and the outputs. What we need are the middle-puts. We have some old cameras for the inputs, and we have a community cable TV station for the outputs. What we would like to do is dump video into a computer, organize clips, add or edit sound, music and titles, and prepare the show for a DVD or tape. Ease of use and economy is more important than fancy bells & whistles. We would lean more towards a PC-based system than a Mac. Can anyone suggest some hardware and editing software that would be good for this? Brands and versions that you have had experience with would be welcome.
