Help: Cost-effective solution for Sony Vaio/VCR solution

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Ron Christian, Feb 3, 2004.

  1. A friend of mine is trying to create a video on his Sony Vaio laptop.
    He has a Pinnacle Linx and Studio 8 and has managed to capture and edit
    the video. He now finds that there's no path from his laptop to the
    VCR. (I think most people burn VCDs or DVDs. For various reasons he
    needs to record onto a VCR.)

    What he needs now is the most cost-effective way to accomplish this.
    He could replace the Linx for another Pinnacle product, but the only
    one that meets his requirements (as far as I can tell) is the Dazzle 150,
    which is out of his price range. (He's retired -- fixed income.) I've
    looked at other Dazzle solutions, but the ones I've found are input only.

    It's a laptop, or this would be easy -- replace the video card.

    I've proposed that he send me the project and I'll render it on my
    own machine (I have video out) but he really wants to do it himself.

    All suggestions welcome. (Including "you can't get there from here",
    if that's the answer.)

    He could send the edited video back to the video camera and then from the video
    camera to the VCR. That is, assuming that the video camera and the VCR both
    have RCA jacks.
