Writer Seeks Input: VHS-to-DVD
on Jul 25, 2004 at 11:18:39 pm

I'm writing an article about the problems (and solutions to problems) associated with transferring analog videotapes to a PC and then turning said tapes into DVDs (some users may want to do straight archiving while others may want to archive now and edit later).

Any thoughts, insights or suggestions are welcome.

Thank you.

While I can copy my VHS video directly to DVD, I usually don't. The bottom few lines of VHS videos are skewed. While these aren't visible on a standard television, where the overscanned lines are masked, they are visible on a digital display, like a computer or projector.

I can use my Premiere/Matrox RT.X100 system to resize the video to eliminate these lines, so I usually do, when archiving my old VHS videos to DVD.
