Computer Editing Programs


New member
Hey guys,

New guy here on the forums and this is my first post/thread. I'm glad I found this forum because I now have the opportunities to converse with people with the same hobby/passion.

I'm just looking for some suggestions as to what is the best computer editing program I can acquire for little money as possible.

I have a Sony Handycam CCD TRV308, a typical cheap camcorder that records on Hi8s. I'm looking forward to purchasing a better camera in the future, but right now, I have to deal with the one I got. : /

Anyway, it records on Hi8s and not SD cards so what program can I utilize to record whatever I have on the Hi8 onto my computer? And which cheap editing program should I acquire?

Responses will be much appreciated! Thank you!!!
