I would like to record camcorder home movies to DVD-R on a Panasonic DMR-E80H. Before I get too far down the road, maybe someone could give me some tips.
Here is my plan:
With video darkness input set to "lighter"...
Some tapes slightly exceed 2 hours, so I will record onto HD using FR mode set to 2:07. I will edit, if needed. If the result is less than 2 hours, I will dub to DVD-R using SP mode. If the result is over 2 hours, I will dub to DVD-R using FR mode set to 2:07.
I won't use "compatiability mode" because the 5 minute track marks are missing...correct? Shall I turn off "compatability mode"?
Why would one use "compatibility mode"...just because it takes 1/2 as much time to transfer a recording from HD to DVD-R? But then there are no track marks?
If there is a better way to do this...please let me know.
