Pixelation/poor Res

Question

I'm using Easy Media Creator 7 to create DVDs. When I view the finished movie (DVD) on my television, it's pixelated (the resolution is poor). It only looks bad when I burn the final movie to disc, not when I'm actually editing on the computer. I shoot on a Sony Digital8 Handycam, and I bring the footage into my HP PC using a FireWire cable and FireConnect Card. Is it a settings problem when I'm capturing my footage prior to edit?

 

Thanks!!

To what format did you capture from your camcorder? The best quality is avi but it creates huge files (about 13GB for 60 minutes of video).

What setting did you use when you burned your video? You should be using Best quality.

Do your have the full retail version of EMC 7 or did it come with your PC? Sometimes the version supplied with a PC is an OEM version which means that it does not have all the features of the full version.

How long in time is the video you are burning? A standard 4.7GB DVD will only hold 60 minutes of video at Best Quality, any more and the video has to be compressed resulting in a loss of quality.

Could you also list your system specs (especially video card) similar to what I have in my signature.

Hi, Walt/DG: Oh, brother, I'm really lost. The help is greatly appreciated. To which format should I be capturing? Where is this function located? I got an error when I tried to burn the disc (Roxio would not let me burn it). I'm switching back and forth between WinDVDCreator and Roxio. Is one better than the other? Can I do VOs in Roxio EMC 7 (it appears as though I cannot do this in WinDVDCreator). I have the full version of EMC 7. My videos are short: about 5 - 10 minutes max. Where do I find my system specs (video card)?

 

Thanks!!

I changed my format this morning when capturing (in WinDVDCreator) from MPEG to avi. I also changed from x60 to x120 (standard play) when burning. This seemed to help the resolution problem a bit (maybe it's just that my Sony Digital8 Handycam [420x, digital zoom, optical 15x] is a pretty old video camera w/o high mega pixel rate). I keep getting an error when I try to burn in Roxio: "DVD Builder has encountered a problem and needs to close..." Any suggestions?

 

Thanks, Walt!
