Will new C-Cube DVXpress boards allow simple VCD archiving?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I'm researching video capture solutions so that I can archive old VHS tapes and DV camcorder shots onto DVD or VCD. I just got a Toshiba 3109 and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of a Video CD I played... given that, I'm trying to see if the MPEG2/DV transcoder boards (i.e. Matrox DT2000? and Pinnacle DV500) based on the C-Cube DVXpress chip will handle real-time MPEG-1 encoding onto a VCD?

I know that these boards include Premiere and some DVD writing utility. But does Sonic Solutions DVD authoring system also write VCD?

Unforunately both of the hardware you mention doesn't allow realtime mpg1 capture as I gathered from before C-Cube chip is capable of encoding vcd compatible mpegs in realtime I think it was due to the licensing thing so it was disabled with the boards design.

I'm sorry I'm not familliar with sonic' DVD .
