Whoah! 35 Seperate VHS

Is there anything like Discmakers for VHS?

How would you approach this to begin with?

I was thinking just playing a fully rendered file out through the firewire throught the dv cam then into a VHS deck. Am I approaching this all wrong?

My other thought is throw the finished segments on a HD and find a service to dub that out to VHS.........

There should be a lot of dub houses in your city that will dub to VHS for you (try Yellow Pages, Google). An efficient way of doing it is to play video into a distribution amplifier to multiple VHS VCRs. If they aren't machine controlled (i.e. some PAL/NTSC switchable VCRs), the tape operator runs to all of them and hits record.

2- The dub house will likely prefer a miniDV tape over something on a HD.

This will work... the setup (analog black level) may be wrong if you are using a consumer/prosumer DV device (many of them don't output proper black level), but VHS is low quality anyways so it may not matter.

Doing VHS dubs is tedious, so you may want to go to a VHS duplication service. DVDs are so much faster to 'dub' it's ridiculous.
