Copying from video to DVD
« on: January 15, 2010, 07:01:59 pm »
Has anyone any advice on copying/transferring video clips from tape to DVD?
Is this something best left to a professional firm, or can it be done at home?

That's spooky as I'm just transferring some home videos to dvd which I've been meaning to do for ages!! :)
I've got a machine to do it.

You could go to Black Cat Video but it's not cheap (was just checking them out)

I use my digital camcorder. My particular model (Canon, don't know what model offhand) has an analog input which I connect to my VHS player, then use the camcorder as a analog to digital converter, and capuring the video on the PC through the firewire cable into Windows Movie Maker.  Once captured you can edit, add titles, menus and so on.

Actually very simple if you've got a camcorder with analog input.
