Im trying to take my poor qaulity family films on vhs to dvdr and would like some advice. I went out and purchased a DAC-100 which works great for capturing in DV from analoge source. Im just using the Microsoft DV codex and just using AVIO for avi capture. I tried vegas but with the poor qaulity tapes it will hang up shortly in to a capture. All Im after is being able to preserve what qaulity I have left and getting them on dvdr's. I was trying to just do D1 352 x 480 but in motion getting jerkie movement. Im just leaving them interlaced due just playing them back on TV only. I also done some 720 x 480 at high bit rate but wasnt that in pressed with them and giving up alot of disk space. Would like to get around 4 hrs on a dvdr and still maintain the qaulity I have. I have been using Tmpge to do my encoding just with using some templates I have downloaded. I am a bit new to encoding so would prefer to find a template that would work good for my needs. Thanks for any help or guides you could provide.

Hi Buick,

You might want to look into KDVD templates. You'll easily fit 4+ hours of full screen, full DVD compliant video on a DVD-R. If you want to put them on a VCD, and you're converting family videos (not movies), you might want to stick to a standard VCD template WITH KVCD parameters. That should be 100% compatible with any DVD player that supports VCD playback. You can do this easily by loading the KVCD LBR or the KVCD 352x240 PLUS and change the encoding mode to CBR and set your bit rate to 1,150Kbps. Now you will be creating a standard VCD MPEG-1 with the advantage of KVCD's quantization matrix and GOP. The only down side is that you'll only be able to put 80 minutes of video on one CD, but the quality should be very close to your VHS tapes.

Thanks Kwag

Yours was one of the first ones I tried but didnt do the vcd one. I used your D1 and gave me the worst results as far as jerkie's but probly the clearest. My main objective is to put them on DVDr for playback on my home dvd player. I know vcd is still concidered a vaild dvd format would you still sugest vcd ?

It all depends on the quality of your VHS tapes. A good VCD, specially if you throw in the Q matrix and GOP, will look almost as good as a VHS and you don't need to use a DVD. Unless you want to put more that 80 minutes, and then DVD-R is the option.
