Burned DVD Playback Lags/Is Grainy?


tjt02

Question

After burning a DVD using Roxio Easy Media Creator 9, it is not as good a quality as we had hoped for.

 

We imported video from our Mini DV camera and made a video from it - we edited it with Videowave, and burned the DVD with MyDVD 9. After burning it, we played it back on our computer DVD player and our TV's DVD player. When there is motion in the movie (like a running basketball player), it would "fall behind" and appear "grainy"(like when you zoom in on a digital photo it gets grainy the more you zoom in). When the "action" wasn't as fast, it seemed to be find.

 

We are wondering what we did wrong or what we could try to remedy this problem and burn better DVD's.

 

Thanks! :)

I can't be sure but it sounds like an interlacing problem. Try changing to progressive in MyDVD and see if that helps any.

We used firewire and it seemed to capture fine. The movies play fine on the computer, it's just that it "falls behind" (like the first message we posted) after we burned it and played it off the DVD. We were also wondering if it could be the quality of the DVD burner. Also, will burning at lower speeds make a difference in quality?

 

Thanks!

Just wanted to say thanks! We burned last night and two of the three movies were good! I will experiment with the last movie.

 

Thanks!

Quality can also be effected by how you captured it from the camera. If you used USB it's going to be low quality capture. You want to make sure you use Firewire if your camera supports it. Also it's best to capture to AVI-DV not MPEG2 if possible.
