I’m in the process of converting my VHS tapes to digital. So far I’ve only made copies of entire tapes. On some tapes there are several programs, so ideally I would like to edit these and make files per program (show, etc.).
What would be a good application for that task? As it’s a one-off thing I prefer not to pay too much. The quality of the source material is pretty bad too, so I don’t need any fancy 4K ready editor. It’s basically just splitting the source material into separate files.
On that topic, what would be the best source format for such a task? I have converted all tapes to H.264 (from the proprietary EyeTV format) but read somewhere that this is not the best format to edit due to being very demanding for cpu and/or gpu. Editing will be done on a quad-core i7 MBP (2017).
Tips, tricks, suggestions are appreciated.
