Considering Emc10

Question

I've watched the online demo for the EMC10, and while it says that old video footage you've captured on camcorders can be put onto dvds with EMC10, it just shows a picture of vhs tapes. My Sony Digital Hi8 Handycam (camcorder) uses Hi-8 tapes, of which I have many that I'd love to be able to convert to dvd. Could I definitely do this with EMC10, if anyone know for sure? Or is it questionable at best?

 

Thanks for the help!

 

P.S. I'm quite unsure about EMC10 after reading the horrible reveiws on Amazon. I haven't read through all the post here, but would I find a general consensus of problems with EMC10 or praises?

The source of the media doesn't really matter (VHS, Hi-8 - even audio tapes).

 

What will matter is how you get that on to the computer. Your camera won't have firewire connections so you will need an analogue to digital conversion

 

Possibilites are a pinnacle capture device (with the RCA commections for audio and video as well as a S-VHS input - this feeds into a USB port

 

A TV card - most of those also have the composite video input but usually depend on a patch lead from the card to the line in on the audio. What I have on my machine is a 'double 3.5 mm stereo adaptor' - that plugs into line in, the TV patch lead goes in one socket and the audio from my source goes in the other (saves plugging and unplugging leads)

 

Comments on EMC 10. Personally I've had no problems or upsets with it - there have been problems but mostly theu're solvable here

I have a library of 100 + Hi-8 tapes I created since I bought my first camcorder for my honeymoon in '91. I even own one of those Hi8 tape players that uses the Sony camcorder battery and has a screen of 2 1/2 inches or so. My pc has a/v inputs, which makes capturing the video a breeze. Then you can create menus for your DVDs w/ images from your movie and sound you grab from it as well!

 

Just make sure your pc has some juice. Here is a thread that you might want to peruse. The "minimum" requirements are listed somewhere in here, but the link will give you a feel for what real users think you should have.

 

Hope this helps!
