Hi, I recently did a webcast on
Webcast

I was thinking about trying to add this feature to my site. Does anyone have a recommendation for the best software to invest in for something like this?

Thanks!

Pinnacle makes some pretty good stuff. I'm installing this software later today.

I use Adobe Premire Pro and Matrox RT.X100 Extreme video card. It's pricey about $900 dollars for both but it will resize video for web. It has a steep learning curve but is powerful software. Let me know if I can help.

I used Adobe Premiere for about a year until a friend of mine pestered me into using Sony Vegas 5... There are certain things I like about each but, I find that Vegas has a cleaner/smoother output than Premiere and a frehser look. The learning curve is not very steep. I learned how to use both software packages by just getting in there and playing around... Vegas' functions seem a little more intuitive than Premiere. Making selections and certain manipulations are somewhat easier to do in Premiere but the transitions are more diverse and easier to apply and manipulate in Vegas.

One thing I liked about Vegas is that when you make transfers from your miniDV to the computer via firewire, it will download everything into separate scenes. Premiere downloads into one long file. If you are editing 45 - 90 minutes of tape and looking for one key scene you want to pull out and work with it is far easier to do in Vegas... you just scroll down until you see the scene you want and then drag it up into the work area. In premier... you need to know just about when on the tape your scene occured... then slice it out and drag it into position.

Prices for Vegas and Premiere are exactly the same... Vegas 6 & Premiere 6.5 are both about $400 each.

As far as a processing card is concerned... I just went with an inexpensive 3 port firewire card to transfer digital video from my miniDV cam (about $30 at Best Buy or Circuit City) and for analog transfers you can use Pinnacle's Dazzle DVC... and you can get it for $60 with free shipping.

If you mean, what will be needed to add the video to your website, then that can be done with many of the web design packages like Dreamweaver, GoLive, NetObjects Fusion, etc. Is that what you're asking? If you're asking about how you process the videos, and create scene transitions, and things like that, then the other posts have addressed that.

You have to be careful in posting video clips, however. Sometimes they work and sometimes not. For example, I went to your link on one computer and just saw the placeholder for the video, but it would not run. I went to a second computer and it ran just fine automatically (although you need some work on reading the tele-prompter). I think this is generally a firewall and/or Spyware filter type problem, but it is definitely a problem that any webmaster has to deal with.

Cheers,
rfs

Tara -

I would go with Pinnacle Systems Studio Deluxe version 9. I've been using Studio for years and it just gets better and better. It's inexpensive ($100 at Best Buy) and very easy to use. Good luck... if you need any help, well, I'll just get in what will become a very long line!
