VHS-C to Digital Files
on Mar 8, 2011 at 10:41:24 am

So ive not been able to get a solid answer on this...

I have a bag of VHS-C tapes that I want to convert to digital files. I'm trying to figure out the most easy and cost effective way of doing this. This is what i've theorized so far, but im not sure if this will work or not?

1. Get a VHS-C tape VCR adapter and a VCR to put it in.

2. Get a RCA to USB adapter to hook up VCR to my Macbook Pro.

3. Then capture in Final Cut Pro, similar to a DV camera or something?


Will this work with these items i've linked to?

Any help or tips, THANK YOU

Hi Shane,
You need to connect your VHS desk to your Mac with something like this:

You capture directly DV by FW.

The first one is an adapter to slot the VHS-C tape into a regular VHS deck, so yes to that. The EasyCap thing, I'd be wary of - it says that it's windows and doesn't mention mac plus there's no mention of what file format it creates, so it's a bit of a gamble. It might work, but probably not very well, I'd go for what Rafael suggests myself.

Shane, if you can't spend $200 then you are in consumer land. Go buy a black magic adapter for less than $150. It has decent quality.works on my mb pro just fine. But remember,you have stated your requirement is price, not quality.
