Need Help on transfering from DV format
I don't know if videography is consider out of topic, but since I need help on this, If anyone of you who could help me to transfer from a miniDV cassette to VCD/CD format, could you give me your quote to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fyi, I need this to be done before 19 Aug.

If it is PAL format, many shops in Sim Lim can do a realtime transfer for about $15 to $30 per tape per hour. However, this VCD image will be slightly pixelated (as the transfer is only intraframe compression). There are better machines out there, but the price is correspondingly higher.
Using software on a PC to do the Mpeg compression will give smoother video (intra and interframe compression), and the process involves copying the MiniDV to the PC, compress and then burn the VCD. PM me for more info.

There is a shop at Adelphi basement (next to toy train shop, or P&G) that does video transfer professionally. Think the shop is known as User Guide, or something like that. Check them out.
