    Default HELP for a school project due MONDAY! :o\

    ok... down to business.. thanks for looking

    I want to record from 8mm to comp - whats the best format? avi etc etc
    with intentions to edit on PC and record BACK to VCR (VHS) via a/v composites and svideo/audio --- required by the teacher.. lame but true.

    Also would video size be affected? Will I be able to get it back to VCR to play on the TV full screen? Quality issues? Sound isses? Please any feed back is appreciated it... you can email me at:

    derekNO@SPAMnetrox.net

    First off, what video-in connections do you have on your PC? Give us the specs of your PC.

    Then you have everything needed to do what you want Take a read through these guides as a first step:

    http://www.marcpeters.co.uk/wondergoals.html (this uses a games console as a source, but the principle is the same as from any analogue source. You might also want to try other, less compressed, codecs if you're going to edit, eg huffyuv)

    http://www.marcpeters.co.uk/analogue.html

    http://www.marcpeters.co.uk/digital-to-analogue.html

    Should get you on the right track.
