HOW TO RECORD VIDEO TAPES TO DVD

VCRs are slipping away fast and most manufacturers have drastically reduced their model count and some have even ceased making them.  Very soon the price will start going up as production scales down.  If you have a large collection of video tapes it is much cheaper (a fraction of the cost) to transfer them to DVDs rather than buy new DVDs.  Many of them you will not be able to buy anyway.  For this you need specific equipment and software.  An old Pentium 11 computer will not do the job.

This tutorial tells you everything you need to have and do.  Much of the software supplied with computers or DVD burners is almost useless. .  If you have not yet purchased suitable equipment, download this tutorial and save money.  The software used in the tutorial is highly efficient but not highly priced.


As the saying goes 'Oils aint oils'.  Some DVD burners simply do not cut it and blank DVDs are even worse.  You do not need to buy the most expensive ones, there are some very high quality, low priced ones.  This tutorial will recommend ones that really work.

ADVANCED VIDEO EDITING WITH 'MPEG VIDEO WIZARD DVD'.

Do you have musical Video Tapes and would like to turn them into high quality DVDs with all the talk and other rubbish removed? improve the sound by a decent amount of bass boost? or are you into home movies?  If so, this tutorial will show you how to edit video like a pro.  If you have purchased the software (MPEG Video Wizard) and bogged down, you can cut straight to the chase by buying this tutorial.  For editing the audio on a video track you will need Adobe Audition 1.5 (unless you are lucky enough to have Cool Edit Pro 2).  Adobe purchased Cool Edit and have re-badged it as Adobe Audition 1.5.  There are a few minor improvements but the old Cool Edit Pro 2 will do very nicely.
