I have a JVC DV camcorder with firewire in/out. I have edited some videos on my PC (1.4GHz Athlon 512MB) and successfully created SVCDs. Since we have some relatives who can't play DVD/SVCD I thought to create VHS tapes by transferring via the camcorder - it should also give better quality than SVCD for archive. Problem is that when I try to output the rendered DV file to the camcorder from either Ulead Studio 7 or Pinnacle 8 the tape starts-and-stops every second or so and the resulting video is awful. It plays very smoothly on Media player so I doubt it's a rendering/machine bandwidth problem. When reading from the tape the motion is smooth and there seem to be no lost frames. Any ideas what's going on? Lampsh.
