Hello everyone. I am just wondering if someone can help me. I am making DVDs from VHS videotapes. I am using the latest version of my DVD now to my actual question. What is the best setting for making the best quality. I notice by default it's set to fit to disc when I record the video tapes. I am recording it in DVD HQ. So, what I really need to know is what setting to set the my DVD to get the best quality. Thank you in advance

Michelle

What is the full name of the software do you have?  I am confused as you mentioned "I am using the latest version of my DVD now..." but you posted on Creator 2010 forum.

If you have "Same as original" for setting, choose that one.

I do not leave anything to chance! I always set mine to HQ in MyDVD…

I was just running some tests this week with VHS tape captures and the results that were repeatable were to capture at the highest quality (DV) and output at HQ.

Since the Default is 'Fit to Disc' you must change it every time, so why not change it to HQ?

Not that Jess is wrong, just my way of doing things and 'Same as Original' is not defined anywhere! That leaves room for doubt as to what it does…
