  1. Thanks for all the help! Knowing that EVD captures at 720 x 480 8000 kbps, I believe I now understand how to get my Hi8 Digital and 8mm Analog tapes rendered to my Windows 10 PC at the best quality. I tested capturing 1 minute, using "Record, Edit, and Save Option", selecting MPEG2 at the "Best Quality" (shows 15000 kbps), and at the Resolution option of 640x480. I am pleased with the resulting quality. FYI, I see the 1 minute captured file has size 67,930 KB and the MPEG2 rendered COMPUTER file size is 133,933 KB.
  2. FYI from previous post: the exported video is set to MPEG2 format.
  3. As a follow-up: Additional testing in Roxio VHS to DVD 3 Plus (Build 301B91B ENU), in my attempt to capture a Hi8mm Digital Tape using an S-Video connecter. It captures the video at bit rate 224kpbs into my Captured Videos folder. I did not see an option to adjust quality on capture - so does it automatically capture this AS the BEST quality - no choice? Since the resolution for the source is 560x480, it makes sense to me to Export the captured video, using "Record, Edit, and Save Option", at the lower Resolution option of 640x480. I want the best quality so I moved the Quality bar to "Best Quality" - the higher I move the quality bar to the "Best Quality" the more the export file bit rate is increased. Using 640x480 at "best quality", it exports the video to my COMPUTER folder with bit rate 1536kpbs (much higher compared to captured video bit rate of 224kpbs) - WHY IS THE CAPTURED bit rate so much lower - is the capture function not capturing the video at "best quality"? Thanks in advance for any insight on what is happening.
  4. I have Roxio VHS to DVD 3 Plus (Build 301B91B ENU). My source is a Hi8mm Digital Tape. From Record, Edit, and Save Option, when I export, at best quality, the captured video to my COMPUTER folder, the software gives me a resolution choice of 640 x 480 OR 720 x 480. The same exported video at 640 x 480 has a much larger file size that when it is exported at resolution 720 x 480 to my COMPUTER folder. Both files (640 X 480) and (720 X 480) exported to my COMPUTER folder, have all other parameters equal (i.e. both have the data rate = 15000 and export with best quality setting). For example, when I exported to my COMPUTER 1 min duration of a captured Hi8mm tape, the size of the file exported at 640x480 is 123,716 KB and the size of the exported at 720x480 file is 70,738 KB – much smaller file size in my COMPUTER folder: Does that mean that the 640x480res file is higher quality when I use the COMPUTER file for future edits? If not, why the larger size? Thanks,
