I have a very large collection of home videos in VHS format. I recently bought the canopus ADVC110 capture device to convert all the tapes to digital format.
The device came packaged (for some extra dollars) with Pinnacle Studio 14HD. The first impression was good but quickly I gave up on using the pinnacle software as it crashes too much and without any obvious reason to do so.
Therefore I am looking for alternative that would be powerful and STABLE. However, I am having a hard time deciding which software to choose as there are many programs available.
Which software do you think would be suitable?
I would like to emphasis that I want to get professional results and I don't mind to read a book if needed to understand how the program works. Also, money is not an issue (up to 500$) as long as the program delivier a stable experience, great quality and some nice effects (DVD authoring ability would be a bonus).
Thanks in advance,
