I am using Power Director 15. I believe I am up to date with all updates and all hardware is up to date with latest drivers. My question is how to get the highest quality image when burning a Blu Ray DVD. I don't really care how long it takes to produce or burn the disk. I'm perfectly content to let things run over night. I guess what I'm asking is what settings to use with producing and burning the disk to achieve the best results. I am moving 40-year-old VHS tapes to Blu Ray. They were all captured with ArcSoft ShowBiz. I'm sure there are better ways to capture the old tapes but it's a long process and I just want to use the files as they are.

Any and all suggestions will be most apprecated,

I used a Panasonic PV-V4620 (Omnivision VHS). The format was MPEG-2, Resolution 720 x 480, Frame Rate 29.97 Fps.

A better vcr would be a good start, preferably with S-video. If you have the money a unit with TBC would be even better. A Panasonic ES-10 or ES-15 would help stabilize timing issues but only used as pass-through as a pseudo TBC.
Capture to lossless AVI is not available in PD so bump up your capture profile bit rate if you plan on doing ANY image correction, this will help keep compression artifacts to a minimum. Use standard profile when you burn.
Also, do not expand the image to hide the overscan and rough edges, it will only degrade the image. Mask the edges. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---
