Is there a way to upload old VHS tapes to the computer to be edited and digitized?
I have an old RCA Pro-Edit VHS videocamera that I liked very much. I am familiar with A & B roll editing, tape-to-tape. I realize, however, that once you plug in your A/B roll footage, by the time you get your edited master completed, you are already down a generation, and subsequent copies are down another, each generation losing quality and resolution.
However, there is no such loss with digital, so if I can get my VHS tapes into the computer somehow, I can edit with no further loss. (The camera outputs are the old RCA connectors--no firewire is available for it.)

You can also buy a similar device at future shop.
There are many devices with a 3 pin A/V plug in one end and a USB cable at the other. This device will convert the analogue to digital in real time so you can save the file in popular digital formats.

I always assumed that Hubpro Basic was some basic level editing to fix minor issues in spelling/grammar. But a new hub of mine was recently edited by HubPro basic before moving to Dengarden. The editor whoever s(he) was did an amazing job and I just wanted to say thanks. Unfortunately, I don't get...

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...

But......I looked to see how many times it had been edited. 6!Why? and why are lots of my other hubs...
