I never saw deck controllers, though it wouldn't have been difficult to
homebrew one. When we used a C64 to do some titling for a school project,
we just directly recorded the output to the VCR. I do believe there were
some genlock products around but I never used one.

It did; I have one on the shelf. However, I get much better quality taking
a frame on the Mac and dithering it, tbh, so I hardly use it anymore. CE was
a very slow means of capturing frames and a VCR with wobbly tracking on
pause didn't help the quality any.
