I am looking to copy some VHS to DVD. What is the best program to use
if:

1. Money were not an issue , within reason
2. I am concerned with cleaning up the output to be of better quality
than the original


Thanks.

P.S. please don't reply if you are only going to say someting like
"why would you want to do that!? Use VCD instead. "

I have my reasons.

Some commercial VHS has macro vision protection that will have to by
passed in order to copy to DVD.
I tried the Plextor Convert X M402 ... the software that comes with it
is InterVideo Win DVD Creator...
I ran into a problem with some movies due to macro vision... the work
around was using SIMA Color Corrector Pro - Series Model SCC...it did
the trick...
The setup I use is a VCR to the SIMA and then to ATI Tuner card with
VIVO (the ConvertX will not work if macro vision is present)and the
InterVideo software...I then use Vegas and Architect 2.
Getting those movies on to DVD has sure freed up shelf space...

Are you talking about commercial VHS or stuff you recorded from TV? If it
stuff from TV just by a DVD Video Recorder and connect your VCR to it. Play
the tape and record on the DVD recorder. You can use the pause, FF and play
controls to remove commercials. This is what I do and am quite happy with
it.

I have tried the going to computer routine and not only is it slow going
since the transfer from VHS to the computer is 1:1, it has been very
problematic with overall quality and reliability of the hardware you use to
connect your VCR to your computer. I just didn't find it worth the hassle. I
also didn't find it worth it as a means to be able to use software to remove
commercials, then you have the re-encoding time, etc. All of this for
something that only is VHS quality anyways.

To broaden your scope I don't think you have any choice but to get a DVD
recorder with a hard drive (HDD). The Panasonic DMR-E80H and DMR-E100H at
about $550 and $800 from the discount houses is what I'd research. Denzil

Get a Canopus ADVC-300
(<http://www.canopus.us/US/products/ADVC300/pm_advc300.asp>) and covert
the VHS tapes to DV25 AVI. The Canopus ADVC-300 has video stabilization,
cleaning and digital noise removing technologies built-in.

Take this captured & cleaned up DV25 AVI, edit as needed, convert it to
DVD-compliant MPEG-2 video + Dolby Digital (AC-3) audio, and then
author/burn to DVD-Video with Sony's Vegas v5.0+DVD
(<http://mediasoftware.sonypictures.com/Products/ShowProduct.asp?PID=912>).

BTW, it is difficult and very timestaking to get better quality than the
original material.
