Did your fire wire card come with any video importing/editing software? You should be able to import it into AVI and then load it into Premiere. Only Premiere 6 supports DV importation. If you have Premiere 6 you should be able to load the WMV into the preview window and then File/Export/Save Video for Web, you then should be able to export to MPEG, QuickTime or Real. If you do look at the Pinnacle Studio 7 product remember that you can only import DV not analog. If you want to import movies from VHS or Hi8 you would need a card that imports both analog and digital like the DV500 Pro also from Pinnacle.

So Billy (gates) allows me to create these WMV files that i would rather turn into mpegs or rp or avi anything more common Any suggestions.
