    I use a Pinnacle capture card, which is not the best. Then I use either Studio 8 or Adobe Premiere to render the vids.

    Juke99,

    It takes me about 3 steps.

    (1) First, I have a capture card in my PC (it's a Winfast 2000XP Deluxe---a decent and cheap card). I just plug my VCR into the card, and capture it with the best possible settings. This process is time consuming (length of the tape) but fairly hands-off. Just let it start capturing and come back in time to turn the capturing off.

    (2) I use an encoding program (TMPG Encoder...the best) to make the video DVD-compatible. This is also time consuming, but I usually let it run overnight: I start it before going to bed, and it's usually done by the time I get up.

    (3) I use a dvd authoring program like Ulead Workshop or DVDLab to create the DVD. Very easy. Takes about 1 minute to get the program settings right and get started creating the DVD, and I let it do the rest (takes less than 30 min).

    Again, it IS a time-consuming process, but pretty hands off (I may spend less than 4-5 minutes at my computer during the entire process). Most of it involves waiting for the PC to do its voodoo.

    Dang, I remember that OT Redskins game. I loved the Rocket. That play was awesome, that's when people would actually bite on our playaction. :(

    Thank you sir...I guess I was hoping that there was a program that ran faster than over night, which is basically what I am doing now...

    I have a collection of old fight films, mostly Ali...that I began to convert to DVD's...I just run out of patience...

    I'll check out some of the stuff you listed above...

    Thanks again.

    That 35-34 comeback against Washington is my all-time favorite.
    I've been a fan for 27 years now, and it's kind of odd that my favorite game occurred 2 years after I started following the Cowboys.
    Obviously the SB wins were great, but those final 2:30 minutes of that game in '79 was awesome.


    P.S. How about getting bored more often :)

    Great job, calico...keep em coming!

    My favorites were the Aikman throw in OT and the Irvin catch on the Packers. Damn, I miss having the Playmaker around.

    No doubt about Irvin. That catch to tie the Redskin game was awesome. There's no one on this team since him that holds on to that ball.

    Those were fantastic!

    Am I alone in thinking that Summerall is/was a lousy play-by-play guy? Garbled announcing, lackluster calls for huge plays.

    I know he's kind of an institution in Dallas, but I think he's way overrated. The call on the slant was such a wet blanket on that fantastic play.
