OPtimising Capture Settings in VS 6 SE
I finally got the cheap VCR I've been looking for so that I can keep it permanently attached to my PC so that I can begin the project of transferring old VHS family videos to DVD. As Premiere doesn't support analog input, I'm using Ulead Video Studio 6.0 SE that came with the Belking Hi Speed USB DVD dongle that I'm using to interface the VCR to the PC. Now, I know that the Belkin dongle at less than £50 is going to deliver less than perfect image quality, so I start at a disadvantage (for <£50, it's surprising it does anything at all...) But I transferred a short piece of video from a shop-bought VHS cassette to DVD last night, and the quality was pretty disappointing: no dropped frames or anything, just rather soft and fuzzy with some 'shimmering'. So the question is, does anyone know what would be the best settings to capture from VHS, acknowledging that the desired output is to DVD for viewing on a TV? Cheers, Ian. (Oh, and see my parallel thread...)
