video editing from pc to home dvd recorder

  melancol 23:19 13 Oct 2003

I edit my home movies on my PC. Is it possible to to burn my edited film to an off board dvd recorder such as my pioneer dvr 3100 using the standard i-link cable?

I don't think so as it's hard enough to burn on pc, let alone transfering that process to another device, but here's some places to look:

what sort of dvd recorder are you referring to? because i might know of a way if you post up more info ie graphics card dvd rec type and inputs etc.

"Firewire (i-link) DV input/output for connection to a camera or PC (To output to a PC the recordings must have been your own)"click here

According to Pioneer the DVR3100 WILL record from the puter.I-Link/IE1394/DV-In,Out are all the same sockets(I think)According to the page I visited,the Scart socket is input only,and prior experience has shown me locating an S-Video lead long enough to go from a TV to a puter is nigh on impossible.

sorry i misread your post, i make video recordings from my pc using tv tool which for £9 can be got from click here dont forget also that your svs to svs lead will not transfer any sound you will need seperate connectors for that.

Thanks,but I no longer need an S-Video lead as I bought a TV card(coax connection to TV/Video)and use DV socket to load from my camcorder.I was looking on behalf of a mate whose "camcorder" is suitcase sized and has only S-Vid connectors,so I bought a Scart to S-Vid convertor.I now have enough variety of connectors/leads to enable me to connect most hardware to Video recorder/camcorder/TV/etc.(and relocated puter in same room as TV)

I do, I think, what you want to do but it is a bit long winded. After editing my video I use my editing software (Pinnacle) to make a master tape back on the camera then copy that tape to DVD using my free standing DVD+RW recorder. This works very well and I am now in the process of re-editing some of my old Hi8 videos to compile them on to DVD. It saves a lot of storage space.

My digi camera has not got an i link input, only output, so I'm trying to cut out that middle bit, by outputting from pc direct to dvd recorder, I can do it via s leads but am trying to retain dv quality, Have burnt discs to vcd and svcd which is ok but I know it can be better. Guess I'll connect it up and give it a go.
Thanks to all for help.
