Apparently a lot of people out there are googling “Video to Computer” so I figured I would write about it.

The first thing you need to know is what kind of computer you have. You either have a Mac or a PC. It’s that kind of world. Very black and white in this case. If you have a Mac, you most likely want some .mov files and if you have a PC you will need the standard .avi files. That’s if you want to edit. If you just want to watch your footage, I highly recommend a DVD transfer. If you want to edit, you’d better know how or at least have the curiosity to find out, otherwise, leave it to the professionals.

A lot of people are finding out that editing is actually a lot of work and a good amount of fun too if you have a pension for it. I know I do. The hours tend to roll by like a train when I’m in the darkened editing bay. Also, Mac computers come with editing software which is very convenient. If you’re a PC user, I recommend you get Adobe Premiere. It’s a great program. There are a lot of cheap programs that I wouldn’t get involved with if I was you. It’s also pretty easy to learn and if you don’t know something, as always, please do “GOOGLE IT!” But if you need help you can always contact us here. (323) 469-0707
