File Size In Video Capture

Question

Until yesterday I used to use Roxio VHS to DVd software with the capture device. In this combination, to capture the video content in a 2 hour video 8 tape and store for later editing and burning to disc would take 6 to 8 gigs.

 

Today I was using Creator NXt to do the same. Now the same 2 hour video 8 tape to capure the video content and store takes 20 gigs.

 

Is this normal or am I doing something wrong.

 

Thanks

To what format did you capture when using VHS2DVD and when using NXT?

 

A 2:08 tape when capturing to avi would give a file size as you show while if capturing to mpg it would give a 6-8GB file.

 

BTw, what are you doing with the captured files?

Digital Guru:

 

Thanks for the reply. Got it. Yes they were in MPG format.

 

Currently just transferring videos on tape to disk, for later editing and burning on to blu ray discs
