Output to DV Tape

After you’ve completed your project, you should output to DV tape to create an archival copy of the finished video or to dub your video to other formats such as VHS or Hi8. Outputting to tape requires the same hardware setup as video capture: connect your camcorder to your computer and turn it to VCR mode. From there, locate the appropriate menu command (“Output to Tape” or “Print to Tape”) and follow the onscreen directions. A typical example is shown in Figure 7.7, a screen from Microsoft’s Movie Maker 2.
