Converting VHS to another format
Material may be captured from VHS and converted to another format as long as it is within the bounds of honoring copyright. Please honor copyright and make sure that your capture is a fair use.
There are three options/roads/tools that you may take to capture and convert a VHS to DVD. They are iMovie/iDVD, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere/Encore. Please follow the links below to see documentation for the tool you choose.
Remember when importing or burning video it operates in REAL time, i.e. 10 minutes of film equals 10 minutes of importing.
To burn a DVD please make sure that a USB Superdrive is connected to the computer and that you have inserted a blank DVD into the drive. DVD-R is the recommended disc type.
