I have just bought a nice camcorder a Sanyo xacti VPC HD1000
It is great and it came with easy to use software to get my recordings from the camera onto the PC and then make a DVD with menu and burn the DVD.
My problem is that it takes far too long to render, I tried a 9 minute film as a test and it took 11 hours to render the film and convert to DVD.
I have a powerful and fast PC and I have no other problems with it running slow on any other apps.
Can anyone please reccommend a beter conversion/rendering software or solution to this please?

I have a quadcore machine with 4gb ram at work, and it takes 35 minutes to convert and burn a full AVI movie to DVD - took up to 2.5hours on a average P4.
If you cannot source this program, PM me and I’ll send you a link tomorrow when I’m at work.
Does that help?
Often times, video editing software has settings in which you can adjust the quality of the output format. I doubt you needed the quality it was set for. My buddy works as a ‘tech director’ for Lucas, and they have to leave their renders going overnight due to the HD quality output that is typically required.
Thats super guys thanks very much
Downloading the trail version now RSG mate, I will see how fast it is in comparison, thanks
Get an iMac. It comes with iMovie and iDVD. Plug in, edit, and burn. Done.

Double that. Easiest system I have ever used. I make movies all the time for my family. Drag and drop everything. Makes me look like a pro.

Also the most expensive.
Honestly, mac’s OS looks amazing and seem idiot proof, but you can build up a better pc at a lower price.
You get what you pay for. Spec for spec, Macs blow PCs out of the water. They don’t make a low end Mac so if you want to compare those Fry’s $199 PCs to an iMac, yes the iMac is more “expensive”. It comes down to this: if you want spyware, viruses, other malware, driver issues, crashes, and love to buy extra software that sometimes works get a PC! If you actually want to just get shit done, get a Mac.
I’ve always bought quality over price, so to me all those people out there bitching about Mac prices get what they pay for. You can’t have a Ferrari at Ford prices.
My computer is cheaper than a Mac and faster. I don’t crash other than from BSODs from my own overlcocking ventures.
Find a mac at 4.0ghz+. You won’t. Thats why PCs are better. Stable OCing and provide greater performance at a lower price. You can get leopard to run on pc hardware since its the same thing, C2D etc.
I’d pit my computer against a mac ANY DAY (with the same comparable hardware) and for cheaper, I’ll make mine faster. Plus I can get movie software on windows now. Its not a mac exclusive.
Just making the point that even though there’s problems, a little knowledge goes a long way in terms of saving a buck and getting more power from a computer.
