Having spent several years in analogue video and with associated equipment I want to update to digital and still retain my analogue VCR for the finished product. I want to do the following, record digital footage and download it to my PC ( which I shall uprate to a specification namely an AMD Athlon XP 1600 processor, Asus A7V266 motherboard, with two separate hard drives). I am contemplating using Pinnacle DV500+ for my capture and editing and finally storing the finished product (2hours+) where? Then with a master digital tape I would like to copy this onto standard VHS for distribution. I am totally confused into which direction I go. Have looked at mini DV camcorders but even with DV-in I am limited to one hour. Will a full size digital camcorder (with DV-in and tape sizes up to three hours) give me the opportunity to export my edited footage to an analogue VCR? With hopefully all things being possible , has anyone any real suggestions as to the makes and models I should be looking at?
