Idea Hi from the Australian West Coast

Hi all
Been a lurker for a while and figured it was time to sign up.

I shot a lot of video on VHS-C, 8mm and Hi8 in the late 80s and 90s. Back then I did most of my editing on Canopus (now Grass Valley) Edius 3.6 and Sony Vegas.

After a long break I've been getting back into editing over the past couple of years and upgraded from MSP14 to MSP15 earlier this year - affordable prosumer level software has come a long way in the past couple of decades!. Not shooting much but focused on capturing, restoring and then editing a sizeable back log of those old tapes.

Looking forward to more learning and maybe being able to chime in occassionally.

Cheers, Robbie

Hi Robbie

Cool, another Aussie - they're actually quite rare around here 8-)

A lot of new people start video editing for the first time, because they want to save their old VHS tapes.
You might be able to help some of them out, next time a new one arrives :idea:

My first video camera was one of the first models to save to SD card, so I missed out the experience of recording to tape.
I did muck around with my parents' tape based video camera, but I actually caught the "film" bug growing up in the 70s and early 80s.
One of my grandmothers bought a 16mm (I think it was 16mm or was it 8mm?) film camera in Japan and brought it back for my dad.
Dad use to record heaps of me and my sisters growing up - it was lots of fun transferring that film to video and bringing it back to life with Vegas.

Thanks for posting a message.
Cheers :)
