Thread: VHS to DVD

  1. #1

    Default VHS to DVD

    Hi, I'm just wondering which would be the best way to transfer VHS to DVD? Or the easiest. I know sometimes the easiest isn't always the best way.

    1. Convert analog video (VHS) to DV using your VCR connected to a DV converter (ie. ADS Pyro AV Link), edit in Final Cut Pro, use iDVD or DVD Studio Pro to make a DVD (with menus)?

    or

    2. Use a DVD/VCR recorder combo, or connect a VCR to a standalone DVD recorder, record DVD. Rip DVD onto computer, convert to MPEG, edit MPEG in Final Cut Pro, use iDVD or DVD Studio Pro to make a DVD (with menus)?
    And using this method, how much video can you record on a single layer DVD-R before the picture quality starts to look pretty crappy, what speed setting should it be set at?

    And of the two, which would produce a better picture quality?

    Or is there another way other than the two mentioned above?

    Thanks for your input.

    P.S. I am using a Mac system

    If you're editing, then I suggest you go with the camcorder option.
