I built my pop a PC to do convert all the old home movies over to VHS. Here's some of the specs in case that might help. Mobo: ASUS K8V Deluxe CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (2.05 Ghz) Memory: 2 X 512-MB Corsair TwinX XMS DDR400/PC3200LL HD: Segate 80GB 7200RPM IDE Video: ATI AIW 9600xt We've tried WinDVD, Pinnacle Studio 8, and VirtualDub. WinDVD and Pinnacle seem to capture with better quality, but have sync problems. VirtualDub allows us to sync the clocks, but the quality is worse. We're both n00bs to video editing, and he's really impatient with this... he expects to point, click, and be done. I've been trying to find something on the settings that we need to use to keep from losing sync or dropping frames, but haven't been able to find much. I don't really have the time to put into helping him with my class/work schedule... so if you guys could throw us a bone.... I'd appreciate it.
