Vhs Capture / Dvd Burn Issue



Hello Folks:


I used the Roxio Composite capture device to capture old VHS movies just fine. I imported using the "DV" setting and it created .avi files.


When I watch just the avi files (by selecting them and watching through WMP) they are fine.


My problem is when burning to DVD...they do burn fine, and I have no problem using My DVD and setting up menus, etc. I have followed the stated guidelines of an hour or less video time for 4.7G DVD, and 2 hours for the 8G variety. The DVD plays on the TV, but there is a "shimmering" effect on the video when the scene pans from left to right or up and down...I selected the highest quality when burning, and can see that the warning bar is still in the good range for HQ burning.


Any ideas?


I'm running:

Dell XPS M1530 Notebook

Windows Vista Home premium

3 GB Ram

Intel® Core2 Duo CPU T7500 @2.2GHz 2.20 GHz

136 GB Hard drive (getting close to tapped out here - 17 GB left)

Digital is One's or Zero's, speed doesn't matter to quality.


With a poor burner or cheap media it might make a difference. I use Verbatim and burn at full throttle and have never seen a problem… Verbatim & Taiyo Yuden (on line ordering) are the tops in media.


You might be able to update the drivers for your Video Card and use Hardware render. Try it and see!

What is the difference in production results using software / hardware rendering? What is going on in that process?

Same thing in either process.


One uses the Video Card (Hardware) to help out.


The other (Software) piles it all on the CPU.


The Hardware offers some 3D effects available only through the Video Card's capability. – I have been doing this 2003 and have yet to see a 3D transition that is important to my productions.
