DVD_ADDICT wrote:I have ULEAD MOVIE FACTORY VERSION 2 and it is a easy program to use. I just started transfering my vhs tapes to dvd and was told to use this program because it's the easiest to learn. You may want to post questions about capturing from this website: www.dvdrhelp.com
They have a forum site for just capturing. I have the ULEAD MOVIE FACTORY 3 DISC CREATOR but haven't tried it out yet. Been to busy capturing on other computer. You don't have to use ULEAD'S burning program. What I've found is you can have it create a ISO IMAGE and the VOB FILE STRUCTURE. Then use another burning program to burn to dvd. I found using their burning program will make the whole creation process such a long one. Hope this helps you out!

Commercial DVD's use DVD-5(4.7GB),DVD-9(8.7GB) and DVD-10(9.8GB).
It also depends on video bitrate:
Your audio type(MP2,LPCM,etc) and bitrate also factors in,use this calculator: www.dvdrhelp.com/tools?tool=3#comments
"Side note: The Ulead program seems extremely similar to NERO VISION EXPRESS, which I have as well. Do any of you find that both are equally good, or is there something superior to the ULEAD program?"
Nero re-encodes everything even if the MPEG is compliant and IMO the encoder is inferior.Ulead uses "Smart Rendering" and has a better encoder where you can set the parameters.

burninfool wrote:"So when you encoded your vhs home movies to dvd what length of time do you encode onto the dvd that produces a result that holds the original quality ( not that vhs has much quality ). "
VHS is roughly VCD quality(352x240,1150kbps) but I use 1500-1800kbps depending on how much action the movie has.If you have a S-VHS player I would use 352x480(576 PAL) and a video bitrate of >2000kbps.
