Large Files - Span or Split?
Q: I have a library of VHS tapes of which most run 120 or a little longer.
Will your VDA_PCI system capture the video in one complete file that can
be encoded or shrunk to fit on one 4.7Gig DVD or does it split a video
that long into two or more segments?
A: The Video Advantage will capture each tape as a file. It will not split
them for you. If you record all of your tapes back to back, you can use
the included software to edit the file into separate files. The number
of files you can include on a single DVD would depend on the compression
format you choose to use when creating your file and burning the DVD.
Q: When I capture a movie it has been in two or more parts is there a way
that I can capture a complete movie in one clip.
A: Depending on the length of the movie that you are trying to capture,
you can capture in one long file or in 2 or more smaller files. In the
Ad FullCap software, click on the file tab. Under the File Length heading,
the Max File Size by default is 4 GB. If your file is larger than this,
as you are capturing, then you will end up with multiple files. Changing
this number to zero will turn this feature off.
