    Editing a DVD made on Panasonic DVD recorder on my iMac
    New at this. I recorded my VHS home movies on DVD through my Panasonic DVD recorder. How do I edit these on my iMac (1.25 MHz 17")? I particularly want to lift scenes out and copy to another DVD, make VCDs and add special effects between scenes. Do I have to convert the files to mpeg2? Do I edit in iMovie? It looks like iMovie only takes still pictures. Or do I need to spend big bucks and get more appropriate software?

    Cool
    iMovie does edit video. I have downloaded my DV video to my powerbook using iMovie.

    Thanks for the reply. Now, how do I get the files from my DVD into iMovie. Don't they have to be converted to mpeg2 files and if so do you know how that's done. Thanks
