I am getting ready to start my first VHS to DVD home movie project. What Settings? 1. Record in 16:9 or 4:3 format? 2. Bit rate SP(4.6Mbps),Manual(6 - 6.8 Mbps), or other bit rate to reproduce as close to the original as possible? Are the transitions between chapters faded in and out or are they like a slide show, one picture to the next? The manual doesn't indicate that there is any fade in or out. If this is the case, then what I would like to do is record the video to a DVD-RAM, copy video to a directory on my PC using my Panasonic DVD Ram/R drive, edit the transitions, then burn to a DVD -r using my PC. Any suggestions on Software which I could easily insert different transitions to my video?
