Question

Is there a Roxio program that will do all the converting I need to do ? I want to convert:

 

1. old super 8 movies to cd/dvd

 

2. vhs to cd/dvd

 

3. beta movies to cd/dvd

 

4. cassette music to cd

 

5. 8-track tape music to cd

 

6. 35mm film negatives to digital pictures

 

7. 35mm slides to digital pictures

 

8. LP records to cd

 

I already have the Roxio's LP to MP3 package but do not want to buy a bunch of programs if 1 will do it all. Thanks for your help.

Roxio Creator 2012 can be used to do all except #1.

You will of course need extra hardware to do some of the tasks such as a capture device to capture of video from a analog video recorder and a scanner to scan the slides and negatives.

Of course this isnt just a matter of Software, you have to have some hardware here too! :o

 

4, 5 & 8 you can Capture the Audio via your PCs Audio input (with the right cables) or with your existing Roxio product ;)

 

6 & 7 require a Scanner! Actaully, 6 requires a "Film Negative Scanner" and pretty good one at that! (4800 Optical DPI or more). Don't get suckered in by the Software Enhanced numbers unless you really want grainy results :lol:

 

Movies dont go on CDs… The quality of a VCD is very poor and time is extremely limited…

 

But for 2 & 3, you must have an Analog to Digital converter! Roxio sells one separately for about $50.

 

For 1, you will have to go with hardware in the form of a projector and camcorder. Here are some rigs I have used:
