Before I get the usual question "Why would you do that" I'm doing it for a video that requires an old video look. I'd rather not use plugins if possible. I did it before with a Dazzle converter and I used a specific program. I have no idea what that program was.

Right now I have a GigaWare Video Converter and I'm using VideoGlide software.

Any advice would be great. I just want to take the HD video I have and have it record to VHS tape then send it back.

well the options out there could be anywhere from $50 to $200.
capture cards that go the other way such as Composite or SVHS.

The Canopus ADVC range is good and simple if you have a firewire port. Even look on ebay for second hand ones.

macrumors apparently
not really sure that your idea will yield the effect you imagined, unless you play the video over & over and the tape eventually degenerates, but how close is your deadline?

have you tried after effects?
