I finally hooked up my satilite and VCR to my computer on Satruday (No easy task because I had to rewire everything - how do wires end up such a mess?) anyway, I started recording my old TV Programmes (Which are not avaliable anywhere) and home movies (Like our first trip abroad - to Florida in '93) onto the computer so I can put them onto DVD since there's no room for videos any more in my room (I have about 300 in my small bedroom).

My TV viewing software (which also recieves signals from my VCR) will record but it splits long segments into multiple files, I can't put them on a disk so is there any way I can stitch the segments together so instead of having 4 20 minute segments I have 1 large segment.

It's been a long while since I ever dabbled with video editing so I really need help here.

Pinnacle Studio 8 will work for something simple like that. There are some better, more costly programs that I use, but that would be a waste for transferring VHS and TV to DVD. Just drag and drop the clips onto the timeline, add transistions if you want, and any other effects or titles before authoring the DVD. It won't be great considering the source files are low resolution, but once on DVD, much easier to store and watch.

Thanks Jeff,

I've been recording them at DVD Standard and they look quite good on the computer but they do look much better on TV.

Thanks,

Your multiple files wouldn't happen to be 2Gb in size each would they?
