For the software, PC or Apple?

Remember that if you want to do a really proper conversion you'll need whats called an A/D Converter (like a Canopus for example).
Some camcorders will let you connect the VCR to your camcorder and then you can use the camcorder's Firewire/USB to connect to your computer (the camcorder works as a pass-through).
Another way is to ask for somebody with the proper setup and gear to do the conversion for you. If the footage is special enough (e.g. an upgrade or uncirculated material) there might be somebody who is willing to do the job for you.

Re: Best bang for the buck software for synching audio to vids?

thanks jabulon. just from reading source info i did know that re: conversion, and i guess my question was too vague/cart ahead of horse. (my OS's are XP and vista). here's the story:

someone contacted me a while back through my youtube channel (burningshoreprophet) and asked me if i wanted a VHS copy of phish 12.29.93, full show but unknown source/gen. he isnt stressed about getting the tape back, so i said sure. he wants me to share in full show format on YT. no problem. and i have always wanted to tackle this kind of project. its pretty sweet given the unknown lineage.

As soon as i started asking around for audio sources/if someone would torrent, etc, somebody else uploaded this show to youtube without the upgraded audio/chopped up into tracks (it looks to me like its the same video). a kind brother did get back to me and i downloaded 2 sources from him: to my ears the shnid #2625 (neumann) sounds the best (also have #33300).

i also have a super sweet los lobos show on VHS that im positive is uncirculated but torrenting it would piss ppl off, so thats more of a private share deal. So... unless people start sending me tapes im really looking at only 2 projects, not sure how much i would need to spend to do it right.

thanks again in advance for any help/addtl info.

Some software choices: Sony Vegas Suite, Adobe Premiere Pro Suite or TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4 (if you don't want to pay, you can use a free trial version), but there are many others. Have a look at this site: http://www.videohelp.com/ , you can ind a lot of info there too.
