You can export the Timeline or a section of it to create an archive of your finished project to digital or analog tape, such as DV or BetacamSP, or to supply your viewer with a VHS copy of the finished movie. However, unless you're using BetacamSP or an RS422 interface between the analog (VHS) deck and your computer, you have no control over the deck and need to export simply by playing back the Timeline with the analog outputs selected.
When exporting to DV, you have full control over the recording deck.
