Software

Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 and Premiere Elements 2.0

I can capture your VHS movies into Premiere Elements 2.0 and

  1. Edit the movie, take remove parts that you don't want.
  2. Either let the movie run from beginning to end or
  3. Create menu chapters that will allow you to click the chapter to go, to find that favorite part.
  4. If you have a sound file to add, I can do that also.
  5. Voice over can also be done.
  6. I can also capture individual frames for any pictures you might want to print out from you movie.
