    Well, I think the problems is that this is one of those questions that get answered every week if not more. Try looking through the forum past posts and see where that leads you. There is a wealth of info there.

    Tried searching first, to no avail. reminder that VHS c capturing will capture everything as a Batch capture if I am not mistaken. So trying to find out which software has the capabikities of capturing, in either clips, or on some sort of time.

    Perhaps would have to buy 2 of the software to do the trick. Just wondering what the eperience in this forum or thread has anyone had with VHS capturing and editing tha's all.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi Ralph,
    I can only answer you as regards Elements 2, I find it V good, but then I've been editing with Premiere since 1995, with elements you can make a DVD straight from the timeline after the editing is complete

    You will need a analogue to digital video convertor, decent ones are 150 - infinity.

    The software you use to capture is almost irrelevant as long as it works with the hardware.

    A cheaper work around can be done if you have acess to a dv cam with a analogue video in, all you do is play the vid audio into the cam and it is magically squirted out the f wire port as dv video.

    Check e bay and any canon model that ends with an 'i' will do the job.

    Try ulead video studio too, very easy to use and cheap, around $99 the best version.
