Transferring VHS to DVD

  [DELETED] 09:13 23 Jun 2006

Thanks to the excellent advice of the reader contributors to the help room I bought the Ulead Picture Show 4. The effectiveness of it's instruction book aside, it is an excellent programme. What I would like to do is to transfer some of my composite video material (both VHS and VHS-C) to a format suitable for use with this programme. Can anybody advise?

If you transfer the Tape files to Computer as Mpg format, you should be able to import them to your Ulead program.By default Ulead saves programs in it's own format, which is not readable by other formats,but you can export (Look under FILE) your saved program to any video format you chhose.

I don't know ulead picture show but it sounds like (and from a quick search looks like) it is for photos and slideshows rather than videos?

It is probably easiest to get a capture device and software package, you'll find them on most computer supplier websites.

I use an AverMedia DVD EZmaker Gold pci capture card which will accept composite signal from a VHS recorder and save as mpg format onto your hard drive. I think Aldi stores also do a USB capture device to do the same thing. About £30 for either.

Suggest you take a look at Dazzle which can transfer VHS to a computer using y/C cable ou RCA (cinch) cables. But it is kind of expensive.
