This has been and is more of a personal project really but I wanted it to have it’s own thread in case people are willing and want to offer suggestions to help me along.
Why Star Trek movie VHS?
Well, I have the DC and the (Special Collector’s Series) SLV,and I wanted to make a 2 disc DVD set out of them for posterity. I also have a few others sealed and want to archive them as well.
In the Star Trek HD Caps thread, some others expressed interest in maybe wanting these as a throwback because this is how they were used to seeing them until the DVD’s arrived. In the end I guess it’s just a retro project that may only appeal to a small group.
I am going to be going from VHS to PC via VirtualDub and Dazzle USB capture device. I will send the picture through my Panasonic DMR-EA18 DVD burner to make use of it’s comb filter. I want to have the LPCM audio for these as it could be useful for other projects … maybe even if it’s just to sync audio.
Please feel free to share suggestions or thoughts on these VHS tapes … every little bit helps. I will do my best to at least post a few screen shots here and there so people can at least see how they look. I will also be learning GIMP so I can make my own custom artwork for these. I am considering just doing Bluray cover art for these as the cases are smaller and would fit nicely against the other Star Trek blurays.
Thanks in advance for allowing me to share this little journey as it is a personal first for me.
