Capturing a full VHS tape
on Feb 3, 2009 at 11:05:13 pm

what program should I use that would allow me to capture a whole VHS tape (2 hours or so) as 1 file? Currently here i what happens....

I will put a tape in...and set it up to capture. I have used Windows Movie Maker and/or a program I purchased years ago called Scenalyzer Live.

I will put a tape in to capture and let it do its thing...I go run an errand or something and come back and the 2 hour tape that I was hoping would be done has only captured 10 minutes or so due to a short break in between scenes. (break meaning some part of the tape that either has nothing on it..like snow)

Is there a setting I can set to bypass it from stoping like that every time. I have alot of tapes to capture and it would be NUTS if I had to sit there and babysit them!

HELP!

This article on Archiving your old footage may be of help. The section on the Pinnacle Video Transfer may be an alternative worth looking at. Hope this helps.

I guess there is one good thing about Avid.

I just hit capture and come back in two hours in this case.
