Description from the packaging.

Use the PC, VCR and camcorder you already own. Nothing else to buy!
It's easy: Choose your favorite scenes and your PC creates a final tape- automatically!

Now you can edit your videotapes to include only your favorite footage.
Remove unwanted scenes quickly and easily.

Your PC controls your camcorder and VCR!
With VideoDirector, you just plug the included Smart-Cable into the serial port of your PC, and connect your camcorder and VCR. You'll be up and running in minutes. VideoDirector can find each of your favorite clips and copy them directly from your camcorder to your VCR. And because VideoDirector does not digitize your video, there's no need to worry about extra memory, expensive video cards, or filling up important hard disk space with cumbersome video files.

Powerful, friendly tools.

  • Familiar-looking, VCR-style controls.
  • Drag-and-drop editing; Use your mouse to arrange your scenes in any order you like.
  • Advanced cataloging; Lets you sort and find scenes by name, date, or subject.
  • Printing; Create attractive labels for all your camcorder and VCR tapes.
  • Tutorial and online help; "Getting Started" tutorial, extensive online help, and more.
  • Setup; VideoDirector automatically configures itself to work seamlessly with your camcorder and VCR.

Finally you can have the tapes your family and friends deserve.
