I'd love to have one of those.
Typically I go camcorder to PC via Firewire. Copy the raw DV to the hard drive. Capture with DVgate, assemble in Sony Movie Studio and add text, transitions, etc.
Output is a little weird for me because I have an older version that does not have the MPEG codec, and it isn't sold standalone any more. So I output to .avi and use some shareware to convert .avi to MPEG2 for DVD. Turns out surprisingly well.
But wonky workflow. I'll upgrade to the current Movie Studio + DVD next time I have some video to work on.
Is this your first camcorder, or an upgrade?
