Huh? Sorry, but is that a question to me or what?
No, no I was talking to myself, if that even makes sense on a forum
Thanks, but my biggest concern the video recording software itself. A big argument among my computer genius friends is that some of the software is...wonky. I heard stories of one program being unable to convert it to a file type you want it to (Such as you want AVI and it converts to WMV.)
Problems with sound programming errors and being unable to record sound from the TV without turning the volume up WAAAAY High. Another problem with voice dubbing problems, but I think they are referring to the video editing, not recording.
The biggest errors I have seen though is the matter of HD vs Not HD. They always want it to be recorded in HD due to it is easier to work with and the program won't do it. There is a big argument between them all and when I just ask a simple questions, I can't get the answer I am looking for. So I am trying other sources.
well corel video studio reads the video and audio and displays it as one file, then you're able to split the streams (actually copy the audio and mute the original) then you can divide the audio stream and modify however you want. You need the original back? Simple => Delete your customized stream and unmute the video stream you can copy the audio of it again if you want.
also I had no problems of rendering in HD, HD and non HD video streams are equally easy to edit. For the project my source material came from a sony handycam like gadget (sorry english is a bit lacking) and I was able to edit H264 (= MPEG4, if I understand correctly). I mixed it with pictures and some lower quality footage from my cellphone and had no problems whatsoever.
Again, I have no experience from recording directley from your tv and I don't understand why you would want to do that (especcialy audio) how you describe it, it sounds like you play the audio on your tv and hold a mike against the tv to record it? (which is probably the worst way to record/copy audio considering quality reduction adding of noise (=> white noise, ambient noises)
If it helps, these are programs my classmates used, sometimes in combination with other programs but it did the trick.
