  1. Do you have tracking buttons on your VCR? If you mess with the tracking, you can get all those lines and flares and you have total control over where the video gets glitchy/ fuzzy. Some newer VCR's might not have tracking buttons, mine's super old, so that might be why.
  2. Hell yeah, that's the way I figured it out, so I thought I would share. Your way sounds so much easier, that's why there's threads like this. Learn from mistakes and learn other peoples techniques. Thanks dudes!
  3. Here's a short edit I filmed/ edited. That skate footage is VX, the b-roll clips are filmed with an HVX. All you need is a VCR, a blank VHS tape, two RCA cables, and a capture camera. Step 1. Open FCP, Premiere, Movie Maker, etc., and lay your clips you've already captured into a new timeline. When all the raw footage you want to use is in your timeline, you then "Edit to Tape". Make sure your capture camera is connected, insert a blank mini-dv tape, and click "Edit to tape". Some programs say different things, but I use FCP7, so I click "Edit to tape" to record my timeline to a tape. Step 2. You'll need a VCR, a blank VHS tape, and two RCA cables (Red, yellow, white on both ends). Connect one end of one RCA cable to your camera and the other end to the "IN" jack on the back of your VCR. Plug the other RCA cable into the "OUT" jack on your VCR and plug the other end of the RCA cable into your TV. Step 3. Power your VCR on, turn the camera on (make sure your camera is in playback mode, rewind your mini-dv tape to the beginning). Insert the blank VHS tape into the VCR, press play on your camera, if the footage doesn't show up on your TV, you need the change the channel on your VCR so it matches up to the channel on your TV. Keep clicking the channel button until the footage shows up. Step 4. Press record on your VCR and record all the footage from you mini-dv tape. Once it's finished, hit the "STOP" button on your VCR, and turn both the camera and VCR off. You now have a tape with VHS quality footage on it. Step 5. How do you transfer the footage to your computer? That's how I can help. You can order your own "VHS to MOV" converter on Amazon here (http://www.amazon.com/Honestech-VHS-DVD-7-0-Deluxe/dp/B00B5P23SG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392666333&sr=8-1&keywords=vhs+to+mov), or you can mail me your VHS tape and I will convert your footage for free. I can send you the .mov file via WeTransfer and it's ready to chop up and edit anyway you please. E-mail me if you're interested. Also, if you don't have a VCR, VHS tapes, etc., you can e-mail me the raw clips or mail me a mini-dv tape, and I can convert everything for you. E-mail: thomastucker89@hotmail.com

    Thanks! Yes, the skate footage is strictly VX-1000. We used the HVX for b-roll/ lifestyle kinda stuff. Thanks for the kind words!

    Hell yeah, thanks man! Yeah I filmed a few long lens clips and totally forgot to turn the steady shot off. The homie with the HUF's is actually me! Haha, thanks for the kind works man! The skatepark is located in Vincennes, Indiana. It's pretty sick, it's small but there's tons of flatground and shit. Thanks again man.
