View Full Version : Dazzle video editing package Yay or Nay
12-03-2002, 11:30 PM
Looking for a beginners video capture/editing kit for my son. I don't need firewire, high resolution, etc. but the ability to throw some effects in, add music; you get the picture. Worst case a worry free way to get my videtape on CD, and eventually when DVD's rule the world, on DVD.
Heard a some good things about Dazzle.
Opinions? (Don't make me feel like an idiot:D Thanks)

nay if you're talking about the usb version. Its just gawd-awful slow. Get the firewire version. Worth the extra cash. One thing. Not sure how much the dazzle firewire units run these days. But I think what might be better is to get the cheapest mini-dv cam you can find with pass through recording. That way you can just capture through the camera and have a new camera while you're at it. Firewire cards are cheapy cheap these days. Bought one for my parent's comp a month ago for $15.

I was going to go with Dazzle USB.I went to Amazon to read the reviews. Practically everyone was disappointed with it. They also seem to be somewhat disappointed with their other editing products.
I bought an older ATI All-In-Wonder Video Capture card from half.com.They also have lots of video editing software.

The dazzle unit sucks. Sucks bad. Buggy, crashes, lock ups, hate it.
Pinnicle studio is a very good editing program, and you can get it for 100 or less. Also, Ulead is pretty good. But if you have a DV camera, you definitly want a firewire card, and yes, you can get them darn cheap, so don't think you have to buy the package deals where the software comes with a card.
For analog capture, the Asus cards rock, as do the All in Wonders.
