Video creation is CPU intensive. The faster the CPU, the more CPUs you have the faster this happens.
Then again you could get a DVD recorder that sits on top of your TV, connect the VCR then press play, the record button on the DVD recorder and it's done in REAL TIME.
What program do I need to upload my VCR tapes to my computer and then to be able to burn them to a DVD? Some programs must be better at doing this than others, but I cannot afford to spend a fortune on one. I tried using Magix Movie Maker Pro 11 and it took 5 hours from the time I recorded the 50 minute tape to finish burning a DVD! There must be something better or faster. I am using a PC with Windows XP home edition. Thanks for your help
