Separating Movie Clips



Never did I ever feel this technically challenged in my life…. I need help!!


I'm in the middle converting all my Hi8 and JVC tapes to DVD's using the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for MAC. I've done a couple of them and so far it's been fine. I am trying to figure out how to split the video into two separate videos once it finished loading to my mac. I am aware that i could have hit the pause button during the video capture while it was transferring over then started a new one but I got distracted and it is a really long video - I would hate to do this all over again if there is something easier, which I'm sure there is. Also, and this is the reason I'm asking, my DVD's only hold 120 minutes of video so the need to split them is warranted.


Im not tech savvy and would really appreciate some help. If anyone knows of a good tutorial - I've searched and this is forum is my last hope. What should I do?

If you look near the top left corner of this page, you'll see: Roxio Community -> Macintosh Applications -> Easy VHS to DVD for Mac (replicated here) Those are all links that you can click on. If you click on Easy VHS to DVD for Mac, you'll be in the proper forum.


Not being a Mac user, I can't help with your question, but I can offer this. For best quality on your DVDs, you want to limit yourself to 1 hour on a single layer (4.7GB) disc, or 2 hours for a Dual-Layer (DL) disc. If you're putting more on, then the video is being fairly highly compressed which reduces the image quality significantly.
