Thanks to both of you for the information. Before I would send out anything I would naturally make a demo for myself to check the quality.
I have been playing with some short clips and ProShow Gold has some great features for adding clips. They can be trimmed and the transitions are exactly the same as for from one image to another.
The main use, at this time, is for high school seniors. I don't photograph weddings anymore. I want the clips to be in B&W if possible and to be very short and would not mind if they were grainy... sorta like that "funky" stuff you see on MTV.. (Is funky still a word? )
I do understand what you mean by the quality, but for my use, I believe something simple would suffice. If I were producing a complete show, and transferring from video to DVD, I would most certainly look into professional equipment.
I was going thru my old video equipment from over 10 or 12 years ago and laughing at how it has all changed. That old stuff still works by the way. I have players and camereas, and that was back when the camera and the tape deck were separate and had battery packs that you had to haul around on a cart.. oh my!!
I stopped shooting video for weddings about 8 years back.. Maybe longer.
I do appreciate the replies.
