I am a newbie when it comes to all things DVD or VCD.
Here’s what I don’t get.
I capture - using WinFast 2000 XP dlx MPEG 2 DVD settings - tried several VHS that were recorded at EP or SLP. (Or whatever the two and six hour recording lengths are called.)
It plays fine off the HD. A virtual copy of the original. Then I author using TMPGENC DVD author - no editing, and burn - tried the TMPGENC and Nero 6.0.19 for burning.
The DVD is always progressively out of synch. From beginning to end - about 2 seconds. It starts to go out of synch at about the 10 minute mark.
This happens on a clean install of Win XP Pro, 80 gig HD 7200 rpm - defragged, 768 meg 2100 ram, Philips Acoustic Edge Sound Card, NEC 1300A.
- Why? If it’s tape quality, then why would it play fine on the HD?
I read somewhere where it was suggested that it may be a sound card issue, because the cards may not really capture at 48,000. Y, N, Maybe?
- Since Virtual Dub has a setting to ‘force’ synch the A/V, then does anyone know of an all in one newbie software that has this feature?
Frankly, my experience is that VHS conversion is not for newbies - the guides are at best incomplete - which is very frustrating because I see no reason why a software package that does it all can’t be created.
Ah well… yes I would like a little cheese with my w(h)ine thank you.
