    Default Advice.. Capturing SVHS and Conversation

    Hello users
    I'm needing to capure Svhs cassette footage to my pc,I've got a cheap converter but I want the best quality possible for my money,am I still right to be thinking the ADVC55 OR ADVC 110 are the best bet? OR for the same price 2nd hand (100 pounds)are there any newer converters out there I should invest in instead?
    Thanks Marrs

    Happy New Year Readers!
    I used a canopus ADVC110 to capture my VHS footage through the Firewire which gives me 720x576 resolution 4.3 ratio, pretty much a DV video AVI file.
    Then I Opened up Vegas and imported my VHS footage,then changed the Field order to Lower field first,changed "Deinterlace method" to "Interpolate fields , bumped up the "Width" to 960 and "Height" to 720 to keep the 4:3 (square) aspect ratio of TV.also changed the Frame rate to 50 fps.
    The best render settings I found which worked for me was using Video for Windows then selecting x264 codec with a bit rate of 4032 kbits/s, also rendered @50 fps,this made a file size of 1.54GB which was 38.15 minutes long.

    I'm wondering why you used 50fps, does this make the footage any better on playback than 25fps ?

    I've just re-read your post.... you kept it interlaced, hence 50fps ? Not converted to progressive ?
