I'm getting a dual 2ghz G5 and I would like transfer some of my old VHS tapes to DVD that will most likely never see the light on a studio released DVD. Obviously I will need some kind of video input hardware. I don't need anything super fancy - it simply has to retain whatever quality the VHS tape is. Something with composite video and/or S-video inputs. Apparently something that connects through USB is fast enough, but I've never tried it myself. As for software, a friend of mine recommended DVD Studio Pro. It would nice to be able to make decent looking menus, but again, nothing super fancy. I know that Studio Pro goes for about $500, but I'm not too worried about the price. There are some software/hardware combos that I've seen that look good, such as ADS's Instant DVD (about $220). Clearly DVD Studio Pro would be better than whatever software ADS offers, but what hardware could I get to go with Studio Pro? I assume Studio Pro would work with the ADS hardware, in that I could capture the video and then edit it with Studio Pro? A specific question concerning the video format: do I want do record the tape as MPEG-2 or DV? I read that DV takes up more space, but I will have about 240gbs of hard drive space at my disposal. I'd go with whichever looks better and is easier to edit.
