Amateur video production using Free Software and Linux

From Linux Journal: "In 1999 I purchased my first DVD player. My wife and I had a small collection of VHS tapes containing videos that we wanted to view using our new
purchase. Furthermore, optical media is very convenient and stable, and the idea of storing our video collection on CD-R discs was very attractive to
us. What followed was a very indepth investigation that has flourished into an interesting hobby. In this article, I cover how to digitize analog
video sources for storage and manipulation on a computer, tools for editing video on a computer and some options for publishing digital videos. One
publishing option I present is storage in the video CD (VCD) format, which is compatible with many DVD players. All of these steps are performed using
free software."
