Each clip can be as long or short as you want but the total duration of all the clips to be combined should be a maximum of  1.5 hours ( 90 mins) for each DVD.

What you need to do?

You need to be able to view your tapes and be able to give a detailed description of the  start of the clip and the end of the clip so that we can locate it

What we do?

Using your description we locate a point just before the starting point of clip we then work out the duration of the clip and set up and capture it. The clip is then trimmed at the start and end to match your description. This process is repeated until we have captured and trimmed all the required clips. The clips are then combined together and made into a DVD.

How much does it cost?

We recommend that you first view the tape or tapes and make rough notes of the clips you want included. If your video player or camcorder has a time counter display then make sure the tape is fully rewound, then reset the counter, this can usually be done by ejecting the tape and re-inserting it. >more

Time display counters

With  VHS tapes and most domestic format camcorders the time counter is based on the position of the tape spools in the player and is not stored on the tape .If your video player or camcorder has a time counter display, it is important to make sure the tape is fully re-wound to the physical start of the tape not the start of the recording , then  reset the counter this can usually done by ejecting the tape and re-inserting it.

Because time display counters work in different ways on different machines, it can only be used as a rough approximate indication of where to find your clip we will then search to pinpoint the actual clip start / end position using your description of the video picture and if it helps the sound .
