Trying to increase my knowledge … for conversion of SVHS tapes, edit in VMS, and eventually onto DVD.
Read on the “Digital Faq” that you should capture using uncompressed (YUY2) or Low Compression codec (HUFFYUV)
I’m using a DV capture device (ADVC300) , and running the capture feature on Sony Vegas, this defaults to DV or DVD …. I select DV and looking at resultant saved file details is shows:

Format : Digital Video
Codec ID : dvsd
Codec ID/Hint : Sony
Duration : 1h 18mn
Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate : 24.4 Mbps
Width : 720 pixels
Height : 576 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 5:4
Original display aspect ratio : 4:3
Frame rate mode : Constant
Frame rate : 25.000 fps
Standard : PAL
Resolution : 8 bits
Colorimetry : 4:2:0
Scan type : Interlaced
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 2.357
Stream size : 15.8 GiB (95%)

Should I be looking at changing the codec to HUFFYUV ? ……


Set up is
PAL SVHS VCR - TBC - ADVC300 - IEEE1394 PC

By using a DV capture device, you're forced to use DV. There are no other options.
