And an "A to Z" manual for one person doing video isn't necessarily going to answer someone else's "A to Z" question
HMMM I don't get that because if some one bought 2012 to edit a video then i should be the same. load a video, edit, pan in and out , add audio, change timeline they are all the same no matter what as long as we are using 2012. but if you go to add video to editor and it shows notthing of all your videos you have in your computer, because oddly enough the video program that your editor came with, changed everything to Dvix but doesn't read Dvix. so your left high and dry. then the company says so what thats your problem go figure it out somewhere else, oh by the way thanks for your money. thats a serious attitude.
The worthless convertor the comes with 2012 doesn't convert Dvix videos either. So what is one to do? go and buy another program that will convert Dvix? And convert to what? roxio doesn't read Dvix or realplayer so what does it read? nor does it reconize honestech which is in mpeg-2 format. so what program format will it reconize videos in ? I just want to load to editor. it that to much to ask for? Then we can work on editing. They should have a general manual that deals with this issue from there company. In my company i put out papers all the time when changes have to made sometimes it requires a 20 - 22 hour day for me but my customers never feel left out in the dark.
I also tried my youtube convertor but that didn't work either. i also tried loading into microsoft movie maker but that didn't work elso.
and if you think i am ranting here you should read the letter i sent them!
Just want to know a few things to get started. I paid for it, i should get something like a basic manual. But as i go through all your stuff here i see i am not the only one with this problem. why does it have to be so frigon difficult! If i knew what i was getting into i would just have avoided it all together and gotten adobe. and taken classes. I am a quick learner when put inthe right direction. I build my own house from ground up and own off grid power system and fix my own trucks, i should be able to edit a simple video. but not if it doesn't come with any details just to stat with.
