I could obviously contribute more if I had that knowledge.
At 93 posts you've contributed a damn sight more than I have.
I was going to buy a hardware/software package,that connects your vcr directly to the computer.
But instead I got a dvd recorder for £57. Not much more than than the other kit,& with a bit of luck it'll last a few years.
So you scart the vcr into the dvd recorder,& record the bits you want.
It's really just a case of transferring the video into the computer,whether that's via a dvd disc,or directly via
cables from a vcr,dvd player,or whatever.
After that,it's a case of editing,(if necessary),the video clip,& converting it to a computer-friendly format.
At the moment,that looks like the hard bit to me as I haven't done it yet.
Windows movie-maker comes with PC'S,and you should be able to do it with that.(but I'm not sure)
Other people use other programs.
It's computer stuff,& with some trial & error you should be able to make something good of it.
