I just ordered a new dell laptop and it comes with windows 10 pro. I am thinking to replace my old desktop and capture card setup from the Xp era.

Is this system bug free for the most part? What video editing program comes with it?

Thanks in advance

Do you have the version that is listed as Windows 10 compatible?  If so, you should be okay.

Kevin, If you are looking for a Video Editing program, then the one in EasyVHS is very, very basic.   Are you capturing from good quality but old VHS tapes?  If they are very old, have gaps or are damaged in any way, perhaps you should look further..

My captures from tapes are done as far as i know, I am replacing my desktop with the laptop listed below. My new footage of the family etc will be from digi cams in hd or cell phone cams. I was just thinking it might be nice to still be able if any tapes pop up.

If this is not a great devise I will just look for a edit program alone

Ideas?

First question - does the digital camera require a Firewire port (digital tapes)?  If so that could be an issue if you don't have a capture program that came with the camcorder.  

 

As for recommendations -  You can always download the free Windows Movie Maker if you are looking for a basic but useful video editor.  If you want more, Roxio Creator NXT 5 or NXT 5 Pro w2ill give you all you need - except if you want to do blu ray discs.  You'll need to buy the plg in for that.

 

I hate to say this but you i5 @2.5 and 4 g RAM with only 250 G hard drive will struggle with all but pretty simple editing.  You can always buy an external hard drive and external blu ray burner the hlp.

 

Roxio is owned by Corel but there is no free trial.  .  Corel@ has Video Studio free trail.   They also own Pinnacle@ but I don't think there is a free trial.  My suggestion is to look at other video editors and try a couple of them if they have free trials.  Remember that the best software is the one that thinks like you do (intuitive for you).

Double check - a lot of video cameras (camcorders) has USB ports BUT those are for transferring pictures (images) only.  Look at your video camcorder, does it have a Firewire port (connection).?    Do you have the original software that says it will capture the video via USB?

The camera we all grab to shoot pics or HD video now is a Nikon P100 and for cell phone pics and video  a Samsung S6 and a I Phone 6. We have retired the tape style recorders.

Hi gus thanks for the information. I have double checked and have no more VHS tapes in my house to copy so I decided i do not need to have a newer video capture devise. If any family tapes pop up from cousins etc I will still have my desktop PC in storage that i could set up and copy for them or myself if my family is on them.

I did plenty of reading for just editing programs alone. I read many discussions here and a few other places looking for an easy bug free program. The free ones all seemed to have complaints that the shareware contained trojans and such so i stayed away from them. I ended up with a competitors product as the discussion groups had far less errors and complaints then any here. Now is Roxio and its family a larger company with more users and thats why? I don't know but I have made one video with this laptop and an external hard drive for plenty of extra space and it worked perfectly and finished quickly. The real test will be the next one which will be a two hour DVD instead of a 38 min one.

I just wanted to thank everyone for the support over the years on my family projects and let you know my wife and i have about 60 DVD library of our families first 25 years done with Creator 9 and XP.

Now to record and make HD for the next 25.

Kevin

Keep it under 2 hrs  for a double layer DVD.  If you go over, the already poor quality will be reduced further or it will be cut short.

 

Roxio and Pinnacle are both owned by Corel.  They all have video editors of lesser or better functionality,

With an Editor/Authoring program that does BD you can put 6:24 hours on a 25 GB disc using SD (720X480) quality and outputting at EP (1280X720). Double that for a 50 GB disc.

 

However that means anyone who wants to view them must have a BD player -_-
