VHS PAL is 720x576 and not 640x480

also, VHS does not capture with embedded audio as seen in your image, you need to choose the RCA analog audio input

I am not familiar with your capture card

Apart from the fact that the size (as Anton has flagged) and codec (Uncompressed) is wrong, the device is a USB device and may not even work with Edius. I dont know anyone who uses this box with Edius. Also why is the output in HD - dump it and get a Blackmagic Intensity.

I have Dazzle. The unit comes with it's own software. I capture with it and then bring the footage into Edius for editing. Works great.

I still use this one : https://www.ebay.fr/itm/EDIUS-NX-HDV...AAAOSwu4BVtdN8

Rock solid. Usable with reliability since Edius 5.... Disavantage to edit and see on external TV you need a monitor with component inputs and RCA for the sound.

Or this one : https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Canopus-Gras...cAAOSweTlcfjru

wich is also very stable. Big advantage it can capture analogic or digital... and editing on external TV with a simple HDMI cable (sound included)

The Dazzle is far from the best product to use for transferring VHS to digital formats, but it it meets you needs that is what counts.

As suggested above, I would use the software provided with the Dazzle to capture the video at the highest quality (e.g., bit rate) it supports, an then bring that file into Edius for editing.

There is no good reason ever to capture SD video to a HD file, or convert it to a HD file for viewing on a HD system. Let upscaling in the playback system do that for you - it will give better results than any consumer/prosumer level software you can buy.

FWIW: VHS (and Video8, S-VHS, Hi8, & Beta) playback is best through an S-VIDEO connection, and often requires use of a TBC (time base corrector) to obtain a good stable signal for capture hardware.

All of the VHS footage that I transfer goes through a Panasonic AG-7650 always with the TBC on.
