Is this something that myth can deal with through the composite or svideo inputs? Any help in the right direction would be appreciated. I look at the myth configuration but it seems very TV orientedl
I'd look at something like digikam or similar. Your digital camera
should have digital files; why go digital->analog->digital; it will take
lots longer, use more CPU horsepower, and give you worse images. Plus
you will lose all your scene info, making editing much harder.
There are linux-based movie editing packages for 'real' editors.
I use digikam to preview and download the clips, and avidemux to crop
them, and then some scripts to create flash video for the website.
