I recently imported a few personal videos I had on VHS or video 8mm tapes using Roxio Easy VHStoDVD equipment and software.
But here's the thing: the files are in .mpg format, very large, and I am wondering how I could possibly reduce them.
I tried placing them in an After Effects or Premiere Pro timeline to export in a mp4/H.264 file, but neither AE nor PP would understand the file.
I opened one of them with QuickTime, thinking the Export feature might work, but it was incredibly slow and would have taken me several weeks to get it all done.
I'm looking for a solution that can be quick (or even batched) and that would output a H.264 / mp4 file - ideally somewhere around 5-10 Mbps and deinterlaced.
