Default VHS to Notebook to DVD?

sponsored links

 
Is this possible?
Basically I want to import a VHS movie onto my laptop and then burn it onto a DVD that would be readable in machines. I figure there's a S-Video input on my laptop and I have a superdrive so it should be doable. Does anyone know exactly how it works? What software do I need etc.?
Thanks,
Abe

iMovie and iDVD is the one for you mate. Your laptop should indeed have an s-video port and a composite port. Use iMovie to import the movie, via the file menu. Having never used iDVD or burned DVD's I presume you just import the recorded file and burn the disc. maybe stnuik and ps2daddy can provide more help here. Any other video editing suite should let you imort movies from vhs like adobe premiere, final cut pro, avid studio etc. Let us know what software you got and we can take it from there

Yoshi is right
The easiest way is to use a firewire capable camera to hook up to your VCR to record the footage then import you movie into imovie and then use iDVD to burn

the best way (though most expensive) is to buy a ADC box for converting the ****og signal (Canopus ADVC100 is my personal fav)....capture into FCP and burn with iDVD/DVD Studio Pro......

Sorry to burst your bubble but you most likely have an s-video OUTPUT on your laptop, not an input. So you can't just dump video in that way.

I am a firewire camera man lover myself the original quality transfer better if you start out completely digital for filming things like weddings, commercials, training films.... ect...ect...
it will also convert ****og video and you can get one for just about the same price as the Canopus ADVC100 esp if you get a cannon ZR series camera

This site has a least 10 cameras between the $300-400 range

Also Abe that is an S-Video output only man Sorry
