Default VHS to VCD IMAGE QUALITY

I'm having a heck of a time to get a really good image quality when I transfere home VHS movies to a VCD format so i can view them on my dvd player. I know there are filters out there but i have no idea where to get them nor how to use them.
I am using an old ATI TUNER CARD and it works great. I just need someone to direct me to a site where i can get these filters to improve the image quality when i convert the video once i capture them.
Can anyone of you knowlegable ppl help?

Thanks

Ok...I guess maybe I'm asking the wrong question here about my vcd quality.

How about this...is there a program out there that will capture my VHS movies in a better format then what i am getting now?

Thanks.

Providing VirtualDubMod recognises your ATI as a capture device you should be able to capture to AVI format rather than try a compression on-the-fly which often results in skipping errors.

As to output format you would get a better resolution in SVCD.

VHS is bad enough quality, especially when digitized.
VCD makes it worse.
You need to capture in avi, using a lossless codec, such as Panasonic DV, or Canopus DV (there are others).
Edit in virtualdub if needed, then encode to SVCD.
If you don't need to do any editing at all, then capture direct to mpeg2.

Thanks...I'll give these a try..I've thought of capturing in avi .
Is there a specific AVI codec I need to encode it with?
I guess the VirtualDub I can find on net easily.

Thanks.

Like I said, a (semi)lossless codec such as Huffyuv, Panasonic DV or Canopus DV.
