VHS onto PC

  billy 23:03 16 Apr 04

I have some VHS tapes which were transfers from old cine films. I would like to transfer to my PC where I have a program (MGI Videowave3)which can encode into MPEG2 and other formats. I currently use the Videowave program to proccess my DV films frommy camcorderso I guess I canproccess VHS films if I can get them onto the PC. Can anyone advise me how I get VHS onto my PC? what format would that be in so Videowavecan read it?

you will need an anologue capture card to transfer the video these are not the cheapest things in the world and if its just a few tapes it may well be cheaper getting it done at a specialist photographers who will probably be able to put them on dvd for you.i have a hauppauge win 250 pvr card that captures tv and any external source that can be fed through s video or composite but they cost nearly £100.darren

Do a Analogue capture card which captures tv and video called PCI TV CARD by Packard Bell and costs about £35.Regards
