I have a need to turn many hours of digital video tape taken on my Panasonic NV-GS400 digital video camera into DVD's and also to store the projects in a standards based format (not propriety as with Windows and Apple) that does not take up huge disk space (as with AVI).
I have done some basic investigations into using KINO to capture the video and some further investigation into using PITIVI to edit the video clips. Unfortunately I have only a short attention span and not enough spare time to convert this information into a competent system to create DVD's out of the video tape I have.
I would like to know if this is indeed an appropriate path to be taking or if there is more appropriate software (read easier way to do it) available to use with UBUNTU to achieve my aims. I have also seen some software called DVD-Maker (or something like that) but it seems to be very command line oriented and I am just not that familiar with the system.

What I have had success with is F-SPOT to manage my hundreds of digital photo's. It is a great package and I am sure I am not using it to it's full potential.

PS. on another front I can't get VLC to play a DVD in my DELL laptop (the DVD player is functional). Any suggestions?
