Dubbing from DV to VHS

Once the video is safely on DV tape, you can copy, or dub, the movie to VHS tape, so that you can send it to grandma and other viewers who don't have a DV camera, DVD player, or computer.

Here I describe how to set up your DV camera and VCR for dubbing and then how to execute the dub.

✓ Tip

  • Dubbing will overwrite any video currently on the VHS tape, so be sure the tape doesn't have video you want to keep.

To connect for dubbing to VHS

1.
Plug in your DV camcorder to AC power.
2.
Make sure the camcorder is in VCR, VTR, or Play mode.
3.
Connect your video cables to the DV camera (Figure 15.13).
