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?
