Product to buy

I am considering purchasing the new Roxio VHS to DVD software to transfer years of family videos to DVD. I have close to 100 2-6hr vhs tapes. What is the rule of thumb for making sure I use the right type of DVD disk (I.e. DVD+R or DVD+R DL) to insure I don't run out of space when making the recording.

 

Has anyone here used this software?

 

It is likely I will finally be doing a bunch of editing to remove many useless scenes, so that should cut down the amount of video being moved to DVD.

 

Certainly, I am aware that the best image I'm going to get from the tapes is about 250 lines of horizontal resolution, so it was it is.

 

Suggestions, recommendations, caveats are all welcomed. :D

 

Thanks in advance

I split the topic because the only thing in common is the amount of video one can place on a DVD.

 

To make things simple, get Creator 2009 especially since you want to do some editing. You can get at least 2 hours of high quality video on a DL disc. It will be 480 resolution. If you want poor quality, why even spend the time? With Creator 2009, you can adjust the amount on a DVD so you don't have to throw out a lot of coasters.

 

By the way, if you simply must have fewer DVDs, and if your DVD player will handle them, consider creating DivX format videos. They will handle a lot more video at good quality. The newer versions allow you to have selectable menus.
