And one of my issues is having to clean the VHS tapes of the white mold.
There used to be a tape cleaners available, yet the supplies are not available anymore.
Anybody have them?

I’ve had good results using QuickTime as my import tool. And apparently it works really well for DV capture from what I was reading.

Another way to go, and What I do for casual grabs at home, is, I have a combination VHS VCR and DVD recorder. I can grab any DV (thru firewire) or VHS tape to DVD , finalize it, then Import the transport stream via various means. I would do something ore high-end if it was for work, but this flow works well for my home movie junk.

Mark- I have one such VCR that can record to it’s internal HDD or Burn straight to a DVD. It’s a work-a-round because I can open up the DVD files on the burned disc and drag the video files onto the timeline of my old Vega Pro. Then render out an MP4 digital file. I found a small device that can take either the VCR’s AV (RCA) composite or HDMIs output and then record right to an SD card as an MP4 file. Then I can drop that into FCPX to either tweak, edit and Share it out for digital delivery.

I’ve used the Elgato Video Capture system and has given me excellent results.
