hi, i have been using a logitech webcam with incredibly long extension leads to film short clips of family parties etc around the house and garden. i realise that this isnt the best equipment to use to get quaility pictures but now it is done i am wondering how and wot i am going to be able to save and store these clips on. i assume it will have to be a disk, but a cd or dvd i dont know. wot and how can i make back up copies? i think i must have about 40 minutes worth of short clips in my logitech studio by now, any ideas? cheers guys
If you have a CD-Writer, why not simply burn them onto a disc? You could try using Windows Movie maker that comes free with Windows XP, but its limited in functions, to make up a whole movie from your clips?
thanx "a world maker". yes i think i have just figured it out. i went to file on the logitech program and was given the option to save, so i did,in "my videos". when i click on it while in here it plays it in windows media, so i assume i can burn them to normal cd from there? now if i had a dvd writer!!
The original webcam movie you made is probably an avi file. Unless this is compressed, the size of the attachment in an e-mail would be enormous. Hence, the Logitech software automatically compresses it when you specify to send it by e-mail.
Yes, a DVD burner would be nice, but I estimate that 40 minutes of avi video should take no more than a maximum of 400Mb of space. So, a CD-R should be sufficient for you to burn them for posterity.
