quality question

Question

Hi,

I have some problems with my DVD. I cannot encode any avi files but have discusses it in detail here before ..... my question today is.. if I work with my avi files in Video Wave and convert them from there into a Mpeg2 file, save it then open it in myDVD or open it in myDVD do i lose quality after encoding it. I mean after converting and than encoding it should lose quality or does it? If anyone knows please let me know.

Thanks

Yes, the key word was "open". I hope the poster really wanted to "add" a video file to a DVD project. When I read open, I thought that the poster added the video file and then wanted to open it for editing. That would have meant a double encoding from the original AVI or mpg2 file and there would have been more loss of quality.

 

As for the project mondschain; I did not say go back to the original discs, I said to go back to the VideoWave project. if you wanted to do some editing. You did save that didn't you. It has a dmsm file extension.

Why would you want to open them in MyDVD? The files are already DVD compliant so they would not need to be re-encoded to be put on a disc. If you go to burn them; the encoding screen will be gray with the mpg2 word. This means it is not being re-encoded.

 

If you want to make changes in them, it is best to go back to the original project and created a mpg2 file again.
