Hi all, I have video on Hi8 & VHS. All home movies. I would like to archive to preserve all of it. And create some DVDs. I have a Sony MiniDV with passthrough. So I can get it into my Mac without too much problem. VHS & Hi 8 are analog formats and DV is digital. My understanding is that the DV is higher resolution than the source tape. So I should be able to compress with minimal loss. Anyone have thoughts/preferences/workflows ... that go from VHS/Hi 8 to digital format that saves hard drive space and maintains quality? I envision doing some editting to create DVDs at later date. h.264?
