VHS to DVD then edit
on Sep 6, 2005 at 1:57:42 pm

I am at a point of confusion and a little frustration.

I want to do the following:

1. Convert my old VHS and 8mm tapes to DVDs
2. Be able to edit some of them at a later date.

My thoughts up to this point are this:

A. I could go buy a DVD recorder (like the Cyberhome 1600, $99) and plug my video players/camera into it and convert all of my tapes.

B. Purchase Pinnacle MovieBox or Dazzle (any other suggestions) and then capture the video and then save it, then output it to DVD.

My question is this, I think that option A seems the easiest and most straight forward way of converting my tapes, but once they are converted to DVD can I then "bring in" that digital data into my Pinnacle Studio DV software (that I allready have) somehow someway? Or any other for that matter? If not, then I guess I have to go with option B. Yes/No, any thoughts?

I have ulead videostudio 9 and under the capture heading there is a button that says "import from dvd", haven't tried it yet though.
I would have thought "pinnicle" would have something along those lines.

how lucky are you... you posted today and got an answer today,
I posted about 2 weeks ago.. and still haven't got an answer.

anyway ..hope tyhat helps

Ulead works great for this. Premiere elements won"t. Thats all I have tried.
