I'm capturing from my VHS (analog rca jacks) via a USB device and I'm not too happy with the results. Firstly, when I capture I have to choose a codec: YUV2 or Indeo 5.1 and my settings are only width=352/height=288 with a throughput of 6076 kbytes/sec. This capture is saved on my HD in a temp folder. Next thing I do is use Studio 8 to do a bit of editing, and then I have to render the project as an AVI or mpeg. I've been rendering as an AVI and using the bundled software to burn to a VCD (for trials) and ultimately to DVDr. Now can I use these captured AVI files to produce a less compressed usable avi with any of the programs we talk about here? Which guide could I use, skipping the ripping phase and going on to DVD? Or is this possible at all?
