Capture Resolution/quality


split
 Share

Question

I can't find specs for VHS to DVD to undsertand the capture resolution ability. For example, S-VHS and Hi-8 have much better resolution than VHS. But as far as I know, VHS to DVD will just capture from these sources at VHS quality.

Does anyone know if VHS to DVD will capture all the quality available from S-VHS and hi-8?

 

Thanks,

This was a pre-purchase question. I Just wanted to make sure that I would be able to capture all the information on my S-VHS tapes....after all I bought S-VHS and Hi-8 equipment originally because I wanted the enhanced resolution.

 

I have seen a few screen shots of DVD to VHS...there does not appear to be very much configirability when it comes to capturing.

There was time when my Video Card had a input capture ability. I remember spending a good amount of time adjusting the capture settings to maximize quality.

No mater what you do, you have analog video and if you put it to DVD, its as Jim said "DVD = 720 X 480"

 

What do you think you can do, more with it?

I have no intention of storing to DVD. I just keep all such captures as video files on my PC. The drives are Raid 5 and they are backed up remotely.

Does this mean that the output of VHS to DVD is always in the DVD format, as the name implies?

Yes....

 

You need the Creator product to choose output formats.

 

Remember your starting with analog video, even if you output it in creator to Blue ray it will never increase the input quality!

I have a few well known video editing software packages which allow video capture. Is there any reason to believe that the VHS to DVD capture dongle will not be compatible?

 

Yes, only guaranteed to work with the driver supplied by the Roxio Software.
