Video Quality

Question

Hello,

 

I'm getting ready to render the final cut of the DVD I'm working on and I had a few questions. First what is the difference in quality between "Fit to Disc" and "Best" Second, do I want to render in software mode, why is this? Third, What is the difference between "interlaced" and Progressive Scan"???

 

Thanks,

Rich

The difference in quality depends on how much you're trying to 'fit to disc'. The more compression to get it to fit, the lower the quality. The rule of thumb for 'best' is about one hour of video.

 

Unless your computer hardware is capable of rendering better than the software can, software mode is best.

 

You can find a desription of progressive scan vs interlacing here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interlace. Basically, you need to know what kind of video you started out with. You'll get the best results if you keep it in that form.
