I need a comprehensive guide on how to convert VHS footage (NTSC) into DVD format. I am aware that there are one-click solutions out there that require inexpensive equipment and basic pointing and clicking on the computer. Those cheap solutions result in cheap video results. I am not interested in those solutions. I need a guide that provides a THOROUGH explanation of the entire process for people who want their video to look the best it can look.
The guide must include topics such as:
- The type of equipment and software needed. Include specific product names and model numbers, along with explanations on why these products are desirable.
- Clear, step-by-step instructions on how to use each of those products.
- Common obstacles that one might encounter during the conversion process and how to overcome them.
- Anything else you think would be helpful to know while working through the conversion process.
Please write for an English-speaking audience who is not familiar with the conversion process, but who is willing to learn and willing to spend the time and money to achieve the best-quality video results. Users of your guide should be able to follow the guide from start to finish and understand exactly what they need to do without consulting other materials. Define your terms clearly, be thorough in your explanations, use graphics if you think they will better highlight your points, and don't assume that the reader knows what you are talking about.
There are already lots of websites out there with varying qualities of guides and instructions posted about this subject. You may search the Internet and browse through such websites to get ideas, but your guide should be far more detailed than what is already out there.
Your guide should include citations when appropriate. For example, if you are stating a fact that is not common knowledge, you must provide a source. If you make a claim that product X outperforms product Y, you must provide a source. When in doubt, provide a source. There is no such thing as too many citations. Please use superscripts and footnotes with a full reference section provided at the end of the guide.
In your bid, explain your familiarity and experience with this process and what makes you knowledgeable enough to write this guide.

I strongly, strongly recommend that all interested bidders CAREFULLY READ my job requirements. The bidders that this project has attracted thus far obviously have not.
