Default Transfering from VHS to DVD.

Hi all looking for some help here. Some years back I got a loan of old photographs of teachers and pupils in Mayfield Community School. I put the photographs on to video tape ( I was very hi-tech at the time). Now I want to transfer the tape to dvd, anyone know the best place in town to get it done. The photographs no longer exist, so I have the only record of the photographs, and would like to have a spare copy on disc.

heres a DIY way.could be a good test to see if your still "very hi-tech"


Connect your VHS VCR or camcorder to a standalone DVD recorder that works much like a VCR. This VHS to DVD recorder basically gives you a DVD copy of your tape in real time. You don't have a lot of flexibility as far as menus, buttons and chapter settings, but it's the fastest and easiest way to convert VHS to DVD. If you get a "DVD VCR" with Firewire connections you can plug a DV/Digital8/DVCAM camcorder or VCR into it and transfer the tapes to DVD at even higher quality than by using the analog connections

Default analogue to digital transfer

hi pat,
i can do the transfer for ya if you want. im out in glasheen.
heres what id do. connect the VHS via a/v leads to a digital video camera. play back the VHS while recording on the camera, thereby digitizing the analogue signal onto a mini DV tape.
once digitized, you can capture this using Final Cut Pro and burn a DVD (with chapters etc.). Final Cut also allows a certain amount of colour correction and cropping tools etc. You can also export certain frames as jpegs for printing too if you want although the quality depends on the state of the VHS.

email is paraic@egomotion.net

Barry,

Looks as though Páraic is still in business.
