Roxio Capture Resolution

Question

The Capture input section of Creator Pro 2011 has a few quality type selections like DVD HQ, DVD SP etc. 

Although the input video is HD, the Captured Video (DVD HQ)  is only 720x480 an aspect ratio of 1.5 very similar to 4x3, no where near HD Full Screen.

I also have NXT3 which has the same capture quality selections.

How can I capture higher quality Video like 720p or 1080p if the input is such ?

Thank you for any replies.

Hi Ted,

The Roxio Media Import application in NXT3 captures your video for burning to DVD, VCD, or DV.  The settings are for output quality. I think it's the same for Creator 2011.

If you choose one of the DVD outputs your captured video is output to the standard DVD dimensions,  720 x 480 for NTSC or 720 x 576 for PAL.    The other settings, HQ, SP, and LP only change the data rate or quality, not the dimensions. 

Selecting a DV output might let you select non-DVD dimensions, but I don't have a capture card or a DV camera, so I can't try it to see.

Hello Brendon:

Thank you for the quick reply.

With Roxio 11 Pro CAPTURE, I am inputting 1280x720 or 1920x1080 video but 'DVD HQ' Output is only 720x480 with Roxio.

So I do not get a wide screen output result.

I am going to try different Capture software like Pinnacle 21.

I will let you know how I make out.

I've been doing this PC stuff for 35 years.

Regards,

Thanks Ted.   That's a long haul - you would have seen the development of optical discs from their birth right through to their twilight.

I think the Roxio software is aimed at capturing to put on a DVD, rather than capture for high-level manipulation or some of the more exotic optical disc formats available now.

Regards, Brendon
