Ok, today I about killed my computer. I was trying to get the DVD Burner to work in Fedora, and that was a trial of its own. So I booted into Windows (Dual Boot System for the time being) and used Nero 6.0 to burn my compilations. Well, Lets get on with my findings.

For video editing, I have acquired copies of Sonic Foundry’s Video Vegas and DVD Architect that work wonderfully. I have completed my first slide show to “The Prayer of the Children”. It turned out great and looks really good on the DVD. So, next is a longer fifteen minute or so project based on Christ and his life. It should be pretty fun! As far as I am concerned, the best video editing and creation software is windows based. I have received a Linux video editor called CinaLerra. Haven’t figured out how to use it, but I have it. The video I created will be available online some time in the future, yet I don’t know when that will be.

In the world of Linux, I still cannot get my computer to give me write access to the VFat windows partition I have mounted under windows, but I do have access to the VFat Pen drive I have mounted under my profile. I am researching ways to mount the drive with write permissions. Also, I can’t get K3B to burn under my profile. The root account burns fine, but it won’t recognize my drive in common-user mode. If you know how to fix this, I’ll be appreciative to know the fixes…. until the next post, see ya laters.
