I have spent the last two hours scouring the internet for an easy to follow guide on how to transfer what I have on a VHS tape to my PC and I have found zilch!
Hopefully someone here can help me. Let me list what I have first
- 1.7ghz P4 80gbs HP desktop w/ CDR and DVD, Windows XP
- I replaced the video card it came with because I needed one that has an S-Video input. I bought a Radeon 7500.
- one VCR with VHS tape and an S-Video cable
I want to import what is on the VHS tape onto my PC hard drive. I then want to edit that footage. The final cut I want to put onto DVD and create a streaming file for my website.
I downloaded RealNetwork's Helix Producer Basic 9 to create the streaming file once I have the final cut on my computer. I bought a program that will let me burn a DVD without having a DVD burner.
It's getting the darn footage captured onto my computer in the first place that has me tearing my hair out.
