    I just finished backing up my hi-8 tape collection onto DVD-RAM media. Now I want to make some "compilation dvds." What is the best way to do this? I really don't know much about "capturing," so if anyone could direct me to the right software for the job, with instructions, I would really appreciate it.

    I would suggest the newest version of Nero. No sense in paying for older technology.
    A tutorial for Shrink can be viewed HERE

    If those are files are in .avi format then you really need to use a program like Adobe Premiere but if you do not want to spend that much $$ the you can use the program inside of Nero called NeroVision Express. Either program will let you make your own menus and you can add music to either program which would be a nice touch for the finished DVD. You will not really need to use Shrink if you watch the storyboard and do not go over the space alloted.
