Years ago I bought an ADS Tech Pyro A/V Link converter box to transfer my VHS to DVD via Firewire. It turned out to be a big waste of money. Commercial VHS usually captured fine but home movies didn't have a consistent or strong enough signal, resulting in a lot of dropped frames, segments and audio. I was told to try running it through a time-base corrector first (never did do that) but thought perhaps my G4 Mac at the time just couldn't handle the throughput. I'm on an 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo iMac now and it can't capture it any better. I've since transferred most of my VHS to DVD with a DVD set top recorder. The captures worked perfectly but I want to edit some of this video and don't want to go through the messy capture and conversion process from MPEG-2 to a format for iMovie or Final Cut Express. Has anyone here transferred VHS home movies to DVD/computer using either Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for Mac or Elgato Video Capture? I’m interested to know what real world experience people have had. Reviews online aren’t telling me a whole lot other than their ease of use. I want to know if the lower to average video quality of home movies transfers well through either of these devices. I don’t want to drop the bucks to find out they drop the frames. I also want to capture this to my Mac for editing, not strictly direct to DVD burning. Thanks.
