I need to convert a tape collection to DVD, the majority of them are SVHS tapes .. what do I need to do to make sure I get the best out of the SVHS tapes during transfer. I would like to have some simple editing on PC after conversion, so I can cut out the rubbish and merge several tapes onto one DVD etc. Equipment .. I have a reasonably fast Dell PC, 4GB RAM running VISTA Ultimate. It has multiple USB 2 ports and 1 firewire port. It has a multiple HD RAID system so loads of HD space. Software wise I have standard VISTA video programmes - Windows movie Maker etc. I also have ADOBE Premier and ADOBE AFTER Effects (never used either though) I have what was a top spec Panasonic SVHS video recorder NV-HH800 with the adapter so I can use my SVHS-C tapes from Camorder in this. Probably not relevant I also have a Panasonic DVD Recorder E95H, so I could convert tape to DVD that way. I have received several emails from ROXIO . For their Easy VHS to DVD product, which has an Svideo input as well as stereo audio and a lead to allow these to be plugged into a USB port. Is this a sensible way to proceed ? . Is SVHS input via USB retaining as much quality as possible, They also include their conversion software. I have no idea what format it converst to or quality of it. What is the best way for me to proceed.
