Hi - I am TOTALLY CONFUSED about the best way to go on this... I have gotten SO MANY different things told to me by technical people, sales people, IT people. It's a simple question:
How do I download my Standard VHS videotapes from my VCR to my Dell XPS 400 computer for editing purposes? (please don't mention Anything about camcorders - I'm only using my regular VCR for this)
Do I use a Video Converter, a Video Capture Device, a Video Capture Card or Media Converter?
Which is the BEST method to use? And which is the BEST Brand/Model converter/device/card to buy? The one thing I am REALLY concerned about is preserveing 100% picture quality in the analog-to-digital conversion - retaining as much clarity, sharpness and color of the original VHS videotapes as possible.
P.S. I'm not looking for an editing sofware to go with this either - I already have a terrific semi-pro editing program on my computer.
I would be so thankful for anyone's knowledgeable, expert advice.
